Has anyone ever experienced this???? My 2 1/2 year old daughter has been calling me by her fathers new girlfriends name!! She does it more when she is angry with me, which has been alot lately. We've been having several tantrums a day for last couple of weeks. It is like being stabbed in the heart. I've talked to her about it and so has her father but she still continues to do it. Can she possibly be lashing out at this young age about us not being together?? Do they understand?? Its so hurtful. Her father and I dont get along at all and we do not interact together with her ever, not since she was an infant. I'm sure thats not healthy either. I've offered to him to do things with her but he is pretty much a court ordered father and only sees her 8 hours a week. He doesnt call ever to just talk to her or say goodnight or to check on her. I do everything I can to make her happy and keep her happy. I just dont know what to do anymore!!
