Child Kicked Out of School Due to Hyperactivity

The streets are still in deep waters. Stupid flood. We can’t leave the house! We’re bored.
But there’s a positive side I think. I’ve finished a lot of work these past few days because I’m stuck in the house. That’s good I guess.
And I’m really thankful the electricity and the Internet didn’t go out. The net is very slow, but it’s better than nothing.
Anyway, since I’m bored. I surfed around the web and stumbled on a Dubai news where a four year old boy got kicked out due to hyperactivity. He’s got ADHD I guess. I feel bad for the parents.
This news got to me since my boy is the same age. Maybe not that active, but I do know some parents with children suffering from ADHD. And they don’t even realize it. They think it’s just normal child hyperactivity.
In fact, the very factor that drove my husband to quit his company was his so called hyperactive coworker. He called him a jerk though. It’s tough for people suffering from ADD. They can’t totally coexist with society. And they frustrate the heck out of their coworkers.
I’ve met a few of these people. They just leave other people alone. They just can’t sit still and relax. They have to move around, interact and bug others. Now imagine that in the workplace. They do all kinds of stuff and excuses just to create more work, even if it’s going nowhere, just because they can’t sit still and relax. And they WILL involve others with them.
Now this drives other people crazy. In a world where everybody’s trying to relax, you annoy others because you’re suffering from a mental illness. Crazy.
I feel bad for these people. They will have a hard time adjusting to society unless they get psychiatric treatment.
I feel bad for the parents of that 4 year old. I could only imagine what they’re going through in the house — chasing after the kid, telling him to sit still — 24 hours a day.
And when they finally thought they could catch a break because the child’s finally going to school, they hear this news. Now they can never rest. This kid will be a an energizer bunny 24 hours a day. It’s tiring.
I know, it’s already tiring enough dealing with a normal child, what more a hyperactive one?
I feel bad. But what do I know? I may just be judging. These are all just based on the news I stumbled upon.
