Hi i'm a mother of 5 kids and I got 4 beautiful daughter and my unico ijo 6 years of age. I am feeling blessed having wonderful gifts like them. As a mother everyday we feel exausted for everyday work at home, sometimes we are much more tiring job than our husband working outside. Because they only work 8 hours but a mother 24/7, isn't? I would like to ask some advice about my 6 years old son, he was so very hyper kid, he love's to run,jump and never stop teasing his younger sisters ( a triplet) that's sometimes i got so angry always telling him to stop. In fairness he would listen for a while but after that there he start again, aaaahh... i want to put him in my pocket so he would behave. Feeling so exausted really, what can i do to make my son lesser his naughty attitude. thanks

welcome to mylot mel, hope you like it here. boys are really headaches har har har. i am the first born in our family and next to me is a boy too so we always make mother's head ache and of course we received a lot of spank and always grounded. me and my brother even almost burned our house for we started a fire on the bed. lucky you that you have only one son. my mother has three and 2 daughters. so you can imagine how disaster our house looks like. now i am also a father and i have a son whose picture appears as my avatar. my wife does not give him too much sugar like candy and chocolates. she reads about this on the net that child tends to be very hyper when eat a lot of sugar and sweets.

really? maybe that's why my boy like that. He love's to eat more on sweets like lollipop and candies, chocolate or anything as long it is sweet and delicious to him. Sometime I got mad asking for a candies to buy him. "I always tell him enough of those candies." thanks for the advice

my son can only eat chocolates maybe a small bite, of sometimes a slice of chocolate cake. search it on the net on what can sugar cause to a child and you will be surprise and that you need to control that intake of him. goodluck. i just hope you dont let him drink cola too for thats sugar as well.

Wow! That is the same problem I'm having with my 4 year old son. He loves to run, jump and everything as if he's not getting tired. And can you imagine how disastrous our house is? Anybody knows how to slow down a super hyper kid?

Hi. melvelasco. I have one son so I know what you are experiencing! My son and his sister, my oldest daughter, have it out all of the time. They fuss and argue with each other all of the time. I do just like you are doing too. I get on him, and he is quiet, then after that, he goes right back to being mean and nasty all over again! I try to talk to him and let him know that I am very unhappy with his behavior. I will tell him that I am not pleased with him and when he makes a lot of noise, it makes my head hurt. I ask him does he want my head to hurt and he sadly tells me no. I have to get beneath myself so that he can respect me. I am usually tired from yelling at my kids all day long. I try to find something for them to do that will distract them too. Right now, he is in his room. When he goes into his bedroom that is when he will get more quieter. When he is around his older sister that is when the war begins. You will just have to stay calm as possible and don't get too upset. I know that it is not easy as it is said. When all else fails, pray, because God can change things that we feel are impossible to change ourselves.
