My 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son and I were playing together. My daughter all of a sudden gave me a wack over the head for no reason. I sent her to her room to calm down. I went into her room after 5 minutes and had a chat with her about why she did it. I also asked her why she doesn't behave like this with her father. She told me that she likes daddy more. She also said that I was stinky and I go to work and daddy doesn't (I work full time - Monday to Friday and my hubby works part time sometimes on the weekend, so he looks after the kids during the week). I asked her if she likes her grandparents more and she said that she likes them the same. At this stage my heart was broken and i told that her that she had hurt my feelings and then I walked off. I was really hurt by her comments and didn't speak to her for the rest of the afternoon. My son came up to me and gave me a hug and told me that he loves me. Is anyone in this same position or knows how to deal with this? I read on the Internet that this is provocative behaviour. Need some advice.
