Parenting a Child with Possible Histrionic Disorder

The characteristics of Histrionic Personality Disorder are: a pervasive need to be the center of attention, extremely seductive behavior, a shallow expression of emotions, a great need to draw attention to self, a lack of empathy, overly dramatic behavior, being easily influenced by others, and seeing relationships as more intimate than they really are.

These behaviors are also common in children and as a result, would need to be very extreme before this diagnosis should be considered. I would suggest that you seek out a competent family therapist who is adept with both diagnosis and general family dynamics, to make a differential diagnosis.
