The idea of looking at the entire picture is what Vass (1984) referred to as "holism." This simply stated that people cannot be fully understood unless the mind and body are seen as having an integral relationships. To understand children's behavior by looking at it holistically would be a major undertaking, but it is important to keep this in mind. A more limited approach to understanding a child's behavior would be to look at sugar, caffeine, food additives, and food allergies as factors in hyperactivity of elementary age kids.
