Seeking expert testimony is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I believe that I can help.
Your husband has a very special touch with your daughter and you are fortunate to be with such a loving man.
When your daughter cries for her father when he is no there, just gently reassure her and do some of the things that she likes to do - take walks play games, tell a story: do something with her and establish new routines that are just mom and daughter routines.
That is a good insight!
I am sure that you give her plenty of loving attention, but this girl requires even more from you until she grows out of this stage. She is such a young girl.
Yes we don't have special mom and daughter specific datings and routines
Well, I am sure that you will be changing that and you will see how she will grow on you as well.
That is great insight!
Actually I do readings and tray work with her everyday
Make sure to always be kind, gentle, and softspoken with her. You probably already are. She will take to you as soon as you start some routines that she will look forward to.
But maybe they are not special enough
Put a bit more effort into them and make them absolutely unique and special between just mom and daughter.
When her dad is around, she even wants the food preparation, milk preparation, diaper changes to be all done by him.
He can beg off some of these chore and tell her that mom will to it this time.
He must be your ally on this.
Actually we have a maid in our house, and when there is only me and the maid, she just does exactly the same thing - she wants me
And rejects the maid.
That's a relief. :)
It is good that she is not rejecting you. She just prefers daddy, but she still loves you.
Actually I do scribbling, painting, tray work with her everyday already.. but maybe still not special enough
Sometimes girls prefer dad and boys prefer om.
yes i see. maybe i have to accept that
Thanks for your insights really. I should try to think of a special thing with her then
It sounds, however, that you have a wonderful and very unique and loving family.
We are trying to be one. We work Montessori and positive parenting
I am sure you will. You sound so kind and intellligent.
It sounds as if you are succeeding.
She is growing gentle , it's just the issue I told you that I am a bit worried about.
And is she still finding that her dad's time is not enough for her
This is not a great concern. It is just her preference at 18 months of age. She will grow out of it Please don't take if personally. It is not.
At this current stage of her life (18 mo) this is her preference. It is not anything to worry about. She loves both of you.
It is not personally directed AGAINST you. She prefers her daddy's style. That is fine.
Your relationship is always in flux.
Thank you so much!
I shall keep your inspirational family in my thoughts and in my prayers.
Have a great day really!
That is wonderful, prayers are a great help
And you too ! :)
Have a blessed and loving fruitful day. Thank you for your gentle replies.
