My daughter is 2 years old was potty trained now she has been having accidents since her father told her he will not be in her life. She tells me he is mean that he doesn't want her she doesn't like him. I allow her to skype and call whenever she wants but now he doesn't pick up for her and it makes her throw tantrums screaming for him through the computer demanding he come home throwing the phone scratching at me. I sucked up my pride and told her father what she is doing and he said he can leave her a message but he wont talk with her she will be fine kids are tough. She just saw a video message and once she realized it was not him live she freaked and cried herself to sleep.
What I have done so far telling her daddy loves her and he is just busy right now.I tried making it fun for her and she looked at me like I was crazy refused to leave a return message. I have tried to distract her with toys or something else to do. So far it just makes her more upset. She keeps retreating into a corner and day dreaming. She has started to suck her thumb and act more like a baby. I have allowed her to sleep in my bed. I would really like to know anything else I can do to help her cope with this situation.
