Learn how to spot the warning signs and prevent hyper breakouts before they start, discover the foods that can help your child stay calm, find out how to use cause, effect and consequences to your advantage, and learn how to change your own behaviour patterns to help change your child's.With the help of "Calm Your Hyperactive Child" you can turn your hyper tearaway into the calm, happy and loving child you know them to truly be.
