My son is 2.5 yrs old and is not at all attached to me. i am a housewife and take care of him completely. Yet he likes only his dad. As soon as his dad comes home, he starts hitting and kicking me and keeps saying that his dad only shud feed him and take him to the toilet. He never lets me go near him. If i do, he pushes me and stares at me. One day after his dad left to office i asked him if he really likes mummy, he said he likes mummy because dad has gone to office. I really feel upset abt this. For that matter his dad is not over affectionate towards him. He plays with him and when my son does something wrong he even hits him.
Till one year back i was a working mom. When he was 5 months old I went part time to office leaving him with a caretaker. Could it be because of this that he does not like me? Please tell me how can i make him love me...Please help me
