I noticed a pattern where one of my bright students had begun to ask me for help on things a lot more recently. This student makes good grades and is above grade level in all subjects. This started to look suspicious to me, so I had a conversation with the student, where the student admitted to me that he was faking it at times to get my attention. I told the student there are better ways to get my attention (this student already was one that received a lot of extra attention from me anyway). I thought things were improving after our talk but I've noticed the constant asking for help has started back up again. I am having trouble distinguishing if the student really does need my help or if the student just wants to be with me. I am always willing to help those who need it, but with a lot of students below grade-level in my room, I feel that I need to work more one-on-one with the struggling students rather than spending my time with this one student if my help isn't actually needed. The student in question is very, very attached to me so I think this is part of why this behavior is occurring. Any suggestions?
