My one year-old has been getting kind of pushy and she always whines for me to carry her. I have to hold her CONSTANTLY from the moment I get home until I leave for work the next day with hardly any breaks in between. She gets very whiny and temperamental not just when she's tired or teething. Lately she's been plain sassy and I don't know where it's coming from. If she doesn't get what she wants immediately she whines, scratches, yells, waves her hands, and can be rather destructive. My husband watches her during the day while I am at work, he says that he holds her a lot but she's not whiny and crabby with him. I honestly have no clue why every single day when I come home I'm subjected to tears and almost "bossiness" from my one year old. I know for a fact she's perfectly fine, laughing and playing before she sees me and then it's all tears and "mama, up!" from there. It's very exhausting and sometimes I feel like she's just happier in general when I'm not around. I love my daughter and I wish I knew how to remedy this negative behavior. I don't even understand what the source of it could be. Please help.
