maybe try to reduce the sugar intake and all. I realised that if we feed him too much goodies after 5pm he will have so much energy. He will not sleep at night. Also can try bringing the kid for a swim or to playground. Do something to help them burn the energy so when night comes, they will be naturally tired enough to settle down.Cane works and i think cos my son is very active too. But then it is so unfair to them if they get canned for just being hyper right? Cos from what i understand from you, the kid is not doing anything wrong.. Just being very active right?
