Hey! I just wanted to talk to ladies who have children who have similar or used to show similar behavioral traits..
My little boy is 3. He has always been nick named 'Bam-Bam' from when he was tiny because he's always been a so full on - bull at a gate style.
What I want to know is often he will just start hitting things, usually things like the floor/wall or a toy. Always with an open palm. Has never damaged anything doing this.
It's almost like he can't help it.. It doesn't come out of frustration but it just happens when he's playing or sitting, just relaxing (if you can call it that!). He never sits still and NEVER stops making noises. Will insist on making some noise constantly instead of giving us 5 minutes of quiet time.
This usually happens at home.. If he is around other children he will happily play or fight as normal kids do...
I am hoping it's just a habit... My nephew has ADHD so my boy constantly gets compared to him...
I'm not sure what to think or do from here... Do I seek professional help or is he just doing what boys do?
