Yes, very likely. Yet, in the past I think that we out-grew those stages, that we grew up and left that need behind. But I wonder if this is still the case, if maybe this need has become so great that it is carrying over into and overly affecting the adulthood of younger generations today.

My children do this to, the "watch me while I do a flip in the water", not the spoiled brat part. It is a bit annoying, because I AM watching them. But, I have to remind myself that one day they will not be asking me to watch them. They will be grown and not care much. I also remember those days when I was asking my parents to count how long I could hold my breath, how far I could dive, or my inferior cartwheels that must have been laughable.
I think it's simply part of being a kid.
Star for the Stuart reference.... "Let me do it!"

Maybe. But, if so, someone will invariably yell "Dumbass!"
Anyways OP, my kid does this on occasion, most typically on days when I am really busy and not giving enough quality time. May the kid just needs more hugs and to feel more cared for? Maybe it's happening more because adults are more distracted by working more or various media devices?

Is it just that I am old now and not in touch with younger generations or is it possible that we are undergoing vast alterations to human consciousness that most of us are still unaware of.
