    Default No more cuddles?

    DS has stopped cuddling me and givng me kisses when I ask him He's just a toddler, but he used to give me a cuddle and kiss when I asked, and the last couple of months he has stopped doing it. He will however still cuddle and kiss others?!

    Does anyone have a child who doesn't want to cuddle or give a kiss? Or one who used to and has stopped doing it with you?

    I miss cuddles from him, and I worry we aren't as close anymore...even though he really is still just a baby...

    DD is 2 and has just started doing this with DH and DS for both cuddles and kisses - with me I'm allowed to kiss her and get cuddles but she won't kiss me anymore. I'm not sure what it is, maybe it's just a development thing that they realise they can control and say no or yes to this when they want.

    We tried to get her to give kisses & cuddles to DS & DH but it seemed to encourage her more so we've left it alone, figure if i give it no attention maybe it will pass. We also thought it was a ploy to delay bedtime as we would do the whole wait for her to give kisses etc so now it's just to bed without them.

    She is still affectionate with DH and DS, just when she wants!
