My daughter now 4 has had an awful attitude in general towards my husband since about 12 months old. At first the pediatrician said it was just a stage that kids go through preferring one parent to the other. It has been better at times, but is not going away. My husband is a good father and tries his best, but he is constantly pushed away and made to feel as though he is not wanted around. At this point he is so angry and hurt he wants to retreat and just stay away from her. I've tried to discipline her for the behaivor, reason with her to be nice and respect him, but the behaivor continues. It is really making it difficult for all of us. Any suggestions would be wonderful.
