I have a 7 year old daughter that has been the center of my universe since the day i layed eyes on her. I am married to her father and he has an older old son in the home. I have been a working mom and my daughter has been a day care baby since she was 6 weeks old. Anytime I am not working my daughter is always with me weather its at the grocery store, shopping or doing laundry she is always by my side. This past year I have noticed a difference with my daughter.
She is too attached. I know when she becomes a teenager I will wish that she is next to me but its really bad. All our friends and family notice. She calls me ever day to see how far away I am, questioning me on how long it will take for me to get home. She won’t let me take a nap because she is scared I wont wake up before she goes to bed. Sometimes I feel like I am the child and she is the parent.
She is not like this with her dad. She loves her dad and they play well together and I know he is the rule enforcer but I don’t know how to get her to be independent without asking me what time I am I going to bed.
Anyone have any suggestions.
