my step daughter is 19 months old. She has been bringing a puppy to all exchanges and it goes with her when she goes to school and with us. At first she would not let it out of her sight or anyone touch it. However the last few weeks she has been giving it to me to hold and walking away. What's up with that?
Also when her dad tries to sit next to me and her she will push him away until he's far enough where she sits w me. I honestly stay in the background a LOT to let him be the primary parent and foster a relationship but it seems she's more comfortable w a female presence. Is there something else I should be doing?
