  1. I’ve been told too that sugar doesn’t cause hyperactive kids. But I have three boys that it’s almost like a light switch for. I used to joke with one like watch what happens when I give him a sprite (bad parenting, I know). So we don’t use sugar in the house much at all. But crap…Tylenol! Ugh I used it A LOT while pregnant 😔

    • I’m sure there are plenty of kids who have a sensitivity to sugar and all the chemicals that are added to sweets. And hyperactivity isn’t always caused by sugar and chemicals — sometimes, it’s just a part of our DNA. I don’t know what to think about the Tylenol, but I do think more research needs to be done. I just wish doctors were more careful with that drug.
