My daughter is such a daddy's girl! sometimes i get upset because she really doesnt want anything to do with me when her Daddy's in the room with us...I have been told its bc all girls are daddy's girls so i wanted to see if this so called rumor is true. If you could let me know it would really help me. Thanks.

I know I'm late joining the party but I had to comment. Both of my girls, 10 and 8, are and always have been huge mommy's girls, the same way my sister and I both were when we were kids. My girls love their daddy to pieces, but it's me they always want to sit with and talk to and show things to and hold hands with, etc. They're outgrowing it somewhat, but I can still feel the preference. Even our dog is a mommy's girl! Don't give up! Ignore the "daddy's girl" behavior and focus on your relationship with your daughter. She'll come around.

My daughter will be 3 next month & I have to say that she doesn't really favor her father overr me or vise versa. I believe it's how you interact with your kid(s). Usually the more interaction with your kid(s) the closer they are to you.

If her daddy is the main breadwinner and therefore the one who's away most of the day, isn't this just the normal reaction to the situation? This was definitely the case with my little one when she was a toddler. Do you not think it would be reversed if you were the one out of the house most of the day?

Actually, I learned in my child psychology class that it is true that MOST girls will be HUGE daddy's girls. it's because at a young age girls actually "fall in love" with their daddies. Because they don't understand the love mommy and daddy have for each other, they actually fall in love with daddy!!
I'm 33 weeks now and if little Brooklyn hasn't moved, kicked, nudged or ANYTHING in HOURS and her daddy comes and touched my belly or starts talkin to her she's IMMEDIATELY all over the place. She already knows that's her daddy...
Just sit back and enjoy the fact that daddy is still there!! Things will even out!! =]

Hey yeah my daughter is the same, she's 1yr 1month and it doesnt change but dont worry it is defently true what they say :) i also feel that because when he is at work she spends most of the time with me but when he comes home she likes to go to him i feel because hes not at home most of the time. But I also love how shes so strung up on him it makes me happy they love eachother and gives me a break of a break!! lol

Thanks..i guess i just get upset bc shes only 9 months and from birth to about 6 months all she wanted was me and now all she wants is daddy so itz a hard adjustment for me.

My daughter is a daddy's girl, she is 13 and she has always been super close to her dad. It is what it is, it doesn't hurt my feelings cuz I know girls need their dads, and she is just like him, so when she is having a hard time, he can help out. But if you have any questions, I would be glad to answer!
