Good morning all. I've been on the forum for a while now but this is the first time I've posted a new thread.
My 2.5 year old DD has recently started acting very clingy towards me to the point where she will not allow her dad to do anything for her. She says things like "go away daddy", "don't like daddy", hit's him, kicks him, bites and other general bad behaviour towards him.
We have tried talking to her and saying things like "that's not nice, daddy loves you, be nice to daddy" and even asking her why she doesn't like daddy to which we don't get a reply.
My partner is a very loving father, he dotes on out daughter and is very patient and kind. I have been thinking alot about it lately and can't seem to figure out what might have happened, if anything, that has triggered this behaviour.
I'm wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar and can offer any advice or tips. It's really getting exhausting and is heartbreaking for my partner because he is now starting to think he's doing something wrong or isn't a good father.
Thanks in advance everyone.
