Unfortunatly it seems like maybe her dad needs to give you guys some alone time you should have days when it is just the 2 of you and then she will learn that she needs to rely on you as well. also following up with punichments is a key and he needs to stick by them as well

How old is she, my daughter is exactly the same (she is 4 1/2 yrs old) She has always been very clingy to me and always wants me to do everything for her and wont let her Dad do anything (like putting her to bed or even making her a drink) but she will listen to him more than me if he tells her off. Me and my Hubby had a big talk about it the other week and we decided Im the one that has always given in to her and doesn't follow though with threatend punishments as much as he does. So since then I've tried being firmer with her and not giving in to her all the time and when I threaten to do something when she acts up I have followed thru with it, (also my Hubby will say 'listen to your Mother' to back me up!) and so far she's been behaving a bit better!
