DS1 is 5 next week. We just had our parent teacher interview at kindy and although the teacher has no concerns with his intellectual ability or behaviour in general it was brought to our attention that he can be quite physical at times - not deliberately so, more of an over-excited boisterous way usually with friends. Think body slams and rough & tumble.
I have noticed too at home he is a lot more active, jumping on couches, running around the house, playing rough etc. We are constantly at him to calm down, be gentle etc.
I do think he just needs more physical activity, I have heard boys have a rise in testosterone around this age so maybe that's part of it. He has a pretty good whole foods based diet and we limit sugar etc.
Has anyone else experienced this and what did you do to curb the behaviour? He already does swimming, kindy sports (we will be changing this to Auskick shortly) and rides his bike regularly. I am not sure I have time or money for more sports but we need to get rid of this energy somehow!
