What the Expert Says:

Many 7-year-olds have a difficult time staying still, but they should be able to follow directions and finish tasks.  

If inattention is new to your son, you might want to talk with your son's regular health care provider, because metabolic disturbances, such as thyroid disease or diabetes can affect a child's behavior and attention.  

If your son's inattention was always there, but perhaps lately has worsened, you may want to have your son evaluated for attention deficit.  In either case, talk with your son's pediatric provider.

Bets regards.
