Im not sure if its her feelings or wat but his mom passed in september and he dont see the rest of the family much,but alot of people has talked to him about it and its not changed. So im not sure on how to fix it.

It would seem that he is more comfortable disiplining the boys (as he is one) than his daughter. Is he afraid of hurting her feelings? Is his mom, aunt or sister in the picture, maybe get them to help him understand that the girl needs/wants just as much correcting as the boys do.
