There are children who are naturally active and have a
strong need for outdoor exploration and free play. Being
asked to sit for periods of time at this age can be against
his natural drive. What activities have you observed where
he is engaged and focused on that activity?
That should give you a good clue on how to adapt the
environment to meet his needs.Often it is easier to change
something in the environment instead of trying to force the
child to be something that he lacks the maturity and self
control to adapt at this time. I always looked for that
certain activity that called to the child - what he or she
loved doing and built from there.
I hope you can get some input on the issues you are
