An attention seeking kid can constitute a serious headache for the parents.  Oftentimes you find such kids seeking attention in diverse ways especially through their incessant demands and actions.  An attention seeking child may say “Mommy, come and see the marks I made in school today”. As the mom tries to succumb, the child may also say; “Mom, where’s my tea cup”.  The demands may go on and on. The child expects the Mom to give him or her attention all the time. This can constitute serious problems not only for the mom but also for the Dad and the entire household.

not only child but every human being r more or less seeking attention, but v elder can express our thoughts and child has not enough develop language so they cry or scream to say their things , so when we give enough attention then temper tantrum will automatically decrease.

Try the following behaviour strategies
1. Praise and reward positive behaviours
2. ignore negative behaviours
3. Have consistent boundaries at home
4. Make some ground rules which should be followed by everybody in the house so the child has good role models to look at.
5. Try and spend quality time with your child on a regular basis.
6. Do things together as a family.
Best wishes
