My 4 year old has been refusing me for the past month now...meaning she doesn't want me to comfort her, hold her, brush her hair...etc. She wants her Nana to do it or my husband but definitely not ever me. She refuses if I ask her if she would like me to do something for her. She will refuse unless I finally get my husband to take her out of the bath or dry her hair or read to her. If my mom is around, she doesn't even pay attention to me She wants my mom to comfort her and hold her and tells her how much she loves her and woos over her. My mom does the same things I try to do for her but she refuses but not with my mom. She hugs my mom, wants her to rock her, wants to constantly spend the night with my mom, and wants to go to her house. I don't know why she is refusing my affection and help. I'm doing the same things my mom and husband would do for her. I feel so worthless right now. She acts like I'm this terrible mother. Its really depressing me. Please someone give me some good advice about what todo. I don't know how to break this cycle. Its been going on for a month now. She acts sad to be around me. It might just be me thinking too much into it. I don't know. Please help.
