    Ellis has started doing so many things for attention......

    Pushing his knuckles into kylas head so she crys then he looks at me...

    Kicking me when i change his bum...

    Screaming SOOO high pitched at everything

    I dont wanna tell him off cos i think thats why he is doing it but i dont want to ignore it either?????

    I have similar sort of things with Ellie (in her case it is biting, banging cupboard doors in the kitchen) she is trying to get my attention. What I do is tell her "No - don't do xxx", and then turn away from her making it clear she is not going to get the attention. This does seem to be working a bit, and reducing how much she does it... then shortly later I give her a cuddle especially if she stops when I ask her to.
