Does your child have too much energy? Take the test!

Does your child have too much energy

Are you living with a hurricane?
Does your child have too much energy?

It can be incredibly trying as a parent to have a child who just never sits still, and frustrating too, if his or her behaviour affects others.

So how do you know whether the amount of energy your child has can be considered normal, or abnormal?

All children are agile and energetic, so what’s the difference? Take our test and find out.

How many of the following can you answer ‘yes’ to?

  1. Your child runs everywhere. In fact, s/he doesn’t just run, they race as though there’s a finish line ahead.

  2. Your child has figured out how to get past all your safety controls, such as child locks, electrical outlet covers, safety latches and locks.

  3. Your child uses furniture as though it’s a jungle-gym. Scaling bookcases and tall furniture poses no problem because your child believes s/he is the next Ninja Warrior.

  4. Your child is loud. You need to wear earplugs just to save your hearing. You feel sorry for your neighbours.

  5. When your child spots a collection of pots and pans, they start making ‘music’.

  6. When you’re in the supermarket, your child uses the aisles as their own personal skating rink.

  7. Your child is the most impatient person you know and refuses to wait their turn for anything.

  8. Your child has the most violent tantrums it has ever been your mortification to witness.

  9. Flying on a plane with your child threatens national security.

  10. If your child doesn’t have regular mealtimes they become feral.

  11. When you tell your child to stop, they don’t seem able to.

  12. Your child cannot sleep through the night.

  13. When playing with other children, your child is very controlling.

  14. Your child finds it difficult to keep friends.

  15. Your child is overly confident, and some may say, arrogant.

  16. Your child is always fidgeting and squirming.

  17. Your child seems incapable of staying in one place for more than one minute.

  18. Your child is easily bored, and likes to jump from one activity to another, and then another, leaving you with the constant tidying up and unfinished projects.

  19. Your child never stops talking. They interrupt or talk over you, and when placed in an educational environment have a tendency to shout out the answers even when asked to ‘put their hand up’ or wait.

  20. Your child hits mountainous highs, but when s/he crashes, the world might as well end.

The test is a little tongue in cheek, but if you recognise what’s at the heart of these challenges, you may be feeling overwhelmed.

The thing about an over-energetic child is that their over-exuberance can depend on a parent’s subjectivity. You may be happier with boisterous behaviour than your neighbour, for example. If you compare your child to their classmates, how do they fare? If your child’s behaviour is not causing stress or upset to themselves or to others, it may just be normal behaviour at this stage of their development. If you have your doubts you should discuss your child’s energy levels with a teacher or medical professional.

How to spot toxic behaviour

You see the word "toxic" everywhere these days, but what does it really mean? You've almost certainly come across someone who fits the description. Dealing with difficult personalities can be challenging and emotionally exhausting, to say the least.

What to do when the spark is fading

Why do you feel butterflies at the start of a new romance, and how can you keep the flame burning in a long term relationship as the spark starts to fade?

Why not me?

It's natural to compare our own lives with those of others - weighing up the pros and cons of situations helps us make decisions. But there can be a downside when you find you're constantly comparing yourself with others, envying their seemingly perfect lives and wondering why they are luckier, more prosperous, and better looking than you.

How to know when to say no

It's often difficult to say no, but some people never do! So how do you know when to say no and when to say yes?

Signs of depression under the radar

It is not always obvious when someone is experiencing depression. Some people with depression mask their symptoms, hiding their feelings behind a smile to convince others they are happy.

I don't want to!

Motivation can be somewhat elusive - some days, you just can't seem to make yourself do the stuff you don't want to. But putting things off just leads to stress, frustration and a sense of guilt.

Six things we think will make us happy, but don't!

When you think about things that will make you happy, what are the images that come to mind? Wealth, beauty, a dream house, long holidays, a top of the range car? Happiness is not a constant and how happy we feel depends on the way we choose to live our lives. 

Is your sex life putting your relationship at risk?

Sexual desire is a complex interaction of hormones, emotions and well-being. When your partner is not as interested in sex as you are, it’s rarely a rejection of you as a person. So it’s essential to be as empathetic as you can regarding your differing libidos.

Choose for your happiness!

Being happy is something everybody strives for, but unfortunately there are a lot of people who go through life unhappily. A lot of people take life how it is.
