Do Children Often Talk To Toys, Including Hyperactive Children?
Noon. My child is aged 2 years and 4 months. He is an active child. And can’t be silent. He is already talking and can tell stories. His response to something was good. But sometimes he can talk about the game. Is my child hyperactive ?. Then how do I fix it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Please note, active children are different from hyperactivity. You need to suspect your child has hyperactivity (ADHD = attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) if several signs appear such as:
Difficulty concentrating, easily distracted, not completing assigned tasks Difficult to obey orders, such as not listening Sloppy, impatient Seems difficult to be quiet, restless, always moving Talks continuously, often interrupts other people's conversations. Doesn't understand the dangers or bad consequences, etc. Often inviting him to talk about his toys does not necessarily indicate hyperactivity. At the age of 2 to 7 years, a child's imagination ability develops rapidly so that he often talks to inanimate objects around him because they are considered alive. As long as your child is willing to listen well when spoken to, responds well when ordered to do something, tells stories in clear language, and does not show other signs as mentioned above that are very disturbing and overwhelming, then this condition is probably still normal.
However, if in doubt, there is nothing wrong with you having your child examined directly to a doctor or pediatrician for further observation. With direct observation, of course doctors can identify which ones are classified as a disorder, and which ones are still classified as normal developmental variations. During the observation, the doctor will likely give your child several tasks to do, invite him to talk and interact, and assess the child's interactions with you as a knowledgeable person and their environment. Some special examinations, including growth and development monitoring, CT scans, etc., can also be done by doctors if necessary.
At this point, you should always accompany your child to grow and develop. Create a pleasant home atmosphere, don't use greatness in parenting, be it physical or verbal abuse. Give him toys according to his age. Teach him to do daily things independently, especially those related to his own needs, for example eating, dressing, bathing, tidying up toys, and so on. Channel a lot of children's energy by doing good and productive activities, which are useful for the development of the brain and body. Often also talk to him, ask about activities he did all day, how is his mood, and so on. Avoid giving TV and gadgets to children too early.
