Constant noise and cant sit still
3

muminthenorth05 · 19/06/2022 10:50

Any advise on this would be hugely appreciate.

My son is 5 and has always been a child 'on the go'. He's been a very hyper child from the age of 2 but since he has started school, I've noticed some parts of his behaviour has heightened beyond belief.

He is constantly making noises with his mouth, clicking with his tongue, inward and outward whistling, screeching, growling... but it is all the time. I'm not even sure he realises he is doing it.

He also, at times, cannot sit still. A simple task such as getting dressed takes a lifetime because he gets distracted, by mithering the cats, or picking up a toy of some sort. If I ask him to put his shoes on, he will go and do something completely different.

He's not very pleasant to our cats and I have seen him chasing them and being heavy handed. I have to constantly tell him to leave them be and I feel like I am just constantly repeating myself.

He has complete meltdowns if he doesn't get his own way, shouts at me and tells me to shut up all the time. I am really starting to think maybe it's not his fault and just wondered if anyone had any similar experiences with their children, and the steps taken to help resolve.

I try everything to keep him distracted by baking, playing games (but even thats hard because he has to win every time otherwise he really boots off) and he even enjoys washing up (safely of course).

Thanks for reading my post

What do school say about him @muminthenorth05? Have you discussed your worries with his Class Teacher?

They said they have noticed that he has trouble regulating his emotions and have seen the meltdowns and tantrums but have no other concerns.
They did say to speak with them again if I feel its continuing, but I just wanted to see if other parents have experienced similar.

In your situation I'd book an appointment with your GP and push for a referral to a Paediatrician for an assessment.
