What the Expert Says:

Dear Akhil:

He is only two.  Most children at that age "parallel play" rather than share or play with other children.  It is difficult at this age to establish "hyperactive".  If there is a concern, discuss it with your pediatrician who is best able to observe him in the office and give you some direction.
