I noticed my two year old will push away from me if he hurts himself instead of letting me comfort him. He was playing in a little mall play area when he slipped and bonked his head. I ran to hug him and he pushed me away and kept hugging another mother that was right there. I stay at home with him and his baby brother and I give him tons of love and attention. I don't understand why he would reject me and want to get soothed by a stranger. Does anyone else have a similar experience or insight to this?
