definition of attention seeking
behaviour that attempts to attract the attention of others, especially when this is excessive or exaggerated
Part of what they get out of that drama and attention-seeking is they make their parents and other kids feel like they have to take care of them. | If you ever say, "I should just kill myself," to see how your partner will respond, it is unquestionably an attention-seeking behavior.
