: I am mom of 6. Ages range from 14 to 4 years old.. I am at my wits end with my kids.. I am as strict with them as possible but they ALL tend to do things that could either endanger their lives, or run in the house when I repeatedly scold them for doing so. Too many symptoms here to write about each one. Is it possible that they have ADD? I don't get alot of time to research.. I try to think about when I was a kid, and they seem to be normal..but if there is something that I could give them to calm them down, I surely would try it. I wouldn't want to "drug" them, but something safe for them, and some safety for me...
: thank you
Maybe you're being to strick and everything outside of your rules you consider being hyper or ADHD. Be lax on your rules on the little things and you probably wont be so stressed. I dont think running in and out is so abnormal. Kids do it all the time. Remember they're not perfect, they're human.
