I know how a kid feels when his energy is bottled up, eventually when it’s released, it comes out all at once from twenty to forty-five minute intervals. Think of a normal child that is able to disperse his
energy regularly throughout the day. It is rationed, so it comes out at a even level and doesn’t get out of hand. But a hyperactive child is told to hold that energy back, and so he will release it in random spurts when he can’t contain himself any longer."
I know it sounds simple but I had never thought of it in that way. I had been trying to make him hold all that energy in. I was actually making it worse!
And now one of my favorite quotes from the book. (I'm not entirely sure why but I love it!):
"Let your inner calmness subdue the storm."
I'll leave you with that quote and tell you to give "Charismatic Kid: The New Breed of Superhero" a shot. I've never read anything like it before. I know you'll learn something and be entertained while you do! Go. Check it out. Well not now silly, it doesn't come out until tommorow but then. Definately then. I promise you'll like it and I wouldn't lie to you.
