Using Flash in P Mode

I have a question about the shutter speed when using flash with the K-01 in P mode. I often try to shoot pictures of my young son in available light, but when he is moving around too fast I will use the pop-up flash. With my previous camera (K100D), when I use the flash the camera will automatically adjust the ISO and increase shutter speed so I can capture moving people/objects reasonably well. But with the K-01, it seems to just to adjust the ISO as low as possible while leaving the shutter speed unchanged.

Is there a camera setting I am missing to force the camera to automatically increase the shutter speed when using the flash? Thanks in advance for any help.

You can flip the camera into Tv mode and use the wheel to roll the shutter speed up the max of 1/180th, it only takes a second with some practice. I'm not sure of any way to force the shutter speed up in P mode.
