my 3 1/2 year old boy is a very energetic and excited child. Whenever he gets excited, he cannot pay attention and concentrate on a task.
I often see him clenching his teeth, running in place and shaking his head vigorously from side to side while touching someone as if he's ready to squeeze them but for the most part he doesn't.Sometimes, he gets carried away and he does squeeze hug them like his young brother or a friend.This only happens when he is excited. I don't know what to do.I can't wait till he's 7 to curb this behavior if it's ADD/ADHD. He is able to sit and concentrate on building and playing with his trains and legos for a long time.He can sit through a couple of books but with questions on every few pages even if he's read the book so many times.I've also noticed that when he plays with his friends after school, he's often not playing with the big group of kids and he keeps asking me or another grown up why the other kids don't understand. Usually, it's because he wants to create a story line different from what they have i.e. from a giant squid as opposed to just running from a dragon
