My 2 and a half year old daughter is acting as if she hates her daddy..and he gets really frustrated and hurt whenever she displays this behaviour by not hugging him or getting angry when he trys to speak to her telling him "NO! DADDY" whenever he goes to pick her up. or put her in bed etc etc. sometimes he may even tell her off for her bad behaviour . I feel that his reaction might be adding fuel to the fire so to speak but he doesnt want to hear it..its becoming such a sensitive subject..i think he might blame me..because sometimes after she has been mean to him and he gets frustrated i will step in to try calm her and reassure him but if i didnt do this i worry they would just on for the rest of the day.sometimes they will play on the floor or read a book together or have a short hug but not as much as they used too when she was younger.do we just ignore this behaviour and hope its a phase? or do we need to take action if so any ideas???do i need to stop stepping in?
oh and im the full time mum and my boyfriend works full time 5days
