I have 3 kids. 2 boys and 1 girl. And my daughter never wants ANYTHING to do with me. I try to play with her, have 1 on 1 girly time with her, and get her special surprises. Nothing works! she only likes her daddy. Both of my boys love me to death so I dont understand! How do I get her to want to be around me?

Maybe find a hobby she may like to do out side the home. And I wouldn't spoil her it will only get worse as she gets older. just let he come around on her own. Have your boys help out getting her invulved in a sport, water, or balloon fight. Dont give up she'll come around.

The best answer I have is keep trying and do the best you can to let her know that you love her I have 2 girls one is now 21 and my youngest is 2. They have been polar opposites since the day they were born my oldest still will not let me comfort her in any way the youngest is a total snuggle bug

i had a similar thing with my son when he was around 3,i just felt like he didnt like me.When i tried talking to my boyfriend(his dad) about it he used to say i was paranoid and that it was nt possible.but he definitely avoided me.the good news is hes 9 now and like my shadow.i hope the same happens for you,i dont know but it definitely happens.amanda
