When your child starts acting out for attention...

Do you give in or do you hold out? If he were to start fights daily just to be sent home (at oh say 7 years old), what would you do? Let's say there was a major change at home, like a divorce, remarriage, new baby, or something, would that change how you'd react? How do you let him know his behavior is inappropriate while maintaining his dignity, creativity, and acknowledging the deeper issue?

it's really hard to deal kids like that anyway...maybe we can have some alternative to make him understand more...
