Very Active Child - What would you do?

I have one child that is very active and very wild and impulsive. She is almost 4 now. Anyways, the only way I have found to keep her out of trouble is to constantly be doing some sort of activity with her or paying her my full attention. This is not always possible if the baby is teething. Just wondering how you deal with it. I also have to pay attention to my younger child. My 3 yr. old doesn't nap either, so this makes it hard for me too, I guess I need time for a break.

wouldn't it be a problem later on if she gets used to your constant undivided attention now??

Yes, but I am not sure what to do because she will demand my attention by acting out. More and more drastically until I give her attention (at this point it is negative attention.) I am wondering if maybe she is adhd?? Guess I would have to take that up with her doctor.
