My child is 4 years old, in preschool, soccer and dance. She has not had a nap since before she was 2, she has never been the type of child to just crash on floor after playing, she just can't seem to relax and turn off her little brain. Talks non stop, no matter how tired will force herself to stay awake. She is not withdrawn and is very social. I would appreciate any opinions on what I could do to calm her or speak to her doctor about.

It is very possible that she is ADD or ADHD. I have a child who cant sit still for more than 3minutes. she is constantly talking all the same things your daughter is doing and I had her tested. We were lucky that the results were negative. Our daughter is just a very active child. Talk to her Dr. and see if ADD or ADHD testing should be done. Give all the details of her day and how active she is. You never know.
