She's recently started crying for everything she wants or if she misbehaves and she starts off saying, "but I love you...so you have to give..." "But I love you...so you don't scold me, okay?" She's also constantly asks at such times, "do you love me?" while sobbing away. I try telling her that I love her the most and always will but she's too busy crying to even listen let alone understand. Why does she need this confirmation suddenly. Things at home great so why the insecurity suddenly. I have no clue how to handle this and what I should be saying to let her know that I love her immensely but can't give her all she wants always or not scold when she doesn't finish her milk for half and hour or when she hits another child and grabs a toy.
