My 2 year old little girl is ignoring her father and refuses

Customer Question

My 2 year old little girl is ignoring her father and refuses to kiss him. He is quite close to our older son. What provokes this rejection?

I would not worry too much about this. However, has this happened recently? Is she okay with hugs? Is he clean shaven? Is the kiss on the cheek or lips? At 2 years old it could be almost any thing. It could be that she wants to be kissed rather than give a kiss. A little more description would help. At this point it is unwise to jump to any conclusions.
