1th Child With Hyperactivity
Good night, my daughter is 13 months old, I noticed that my child is very active, but after I read a number of articles about the active child there are 2 types, active and hyperactive. If I read my child’s tendency to be like a hyperactive child, because very often if you say you are not obedient, you often throw away your toys, you can’t stay quiet long, you often have no fatigue, you walk this way and you are often told to sleep when you are seen already very sleepy. How do I overcome it, is my child’s condition very problematic? Is hyperactive 1 year old normal? Please explain … Thank you

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hyperactivity is a condition of mental disorders in children characterized by children having difficulty focusing, having behaviors that seem to never get tired, always moving to and fro, experiencing communication disturbances that have an impact on children's achievement at school.
However, it should be understood that the signs of this disease will not appear until at least the age of 24 months or 2 years. And that's not in all cases, most of them just start appearing at the age of 4-5 years. So if your child is only 13 months old, other possibilities must be considered. For example, it could be that your child consumes too much extra sugar which makes his energy overload. It could also be that your child really likes to play with you because there is a thing that he considers fun and can only get to you. Maybe when together with other people he just met, he was not that active. Then regarding disobedience, at the age of 13 months, indeed a child has not appropriately understood everything we say. It is still natural if he does not understand the consequences of a ban, it is natural that he has not been able to control his behavior on the basis of empathy, and so forth. In conclusion, it is still possible that the attitude that your child is showing you is normal.
But because we didn't check it directly, we can't confirm that. Our advice, if you are doubtful, have it checked by a pediatrician or child psychologist for further excavation and treatment according to his tendencies. But indeed with the current condition where the corona virus is endemic in Indonesia, it helps you postpone the desire to have your child consulted by a doctor, and just survive with the usual conditions at home until the situation becomes more conducive. As a parent, try to be patient first, if he is indeed given too much added sugar, it starts to be reduced, and if indeed you are already very worried about his condition, it's okay to take him to the doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
