Title says it all. I'm not sure what to do anymore.
She loves to play with him when she feels like it, she talks about him tons when he is at work, saying her art is for him and she loves him etc, but when he's home 80% of the time she continually rejects him.
If I'm not home and she is alone with him she is apparently much better with it, but as long as I'm there it's a constant: "No! Mumma!" for most of the day. If he has food she wants to share, or they'll watch a fav show if they sit together, but otherwise she is often very very harsh.
Example he'll say "Hi, Addie."
Addie: "NO! Mumma!"
Goes to kiss her or give her a hug, she scrambles away and pushes his hands away and cries for me. She makes it look like he's horrible or abusive or something, which he's not, and it's really hurting his feelings and making him feel extremely rejected. He also feels very used since she's nicer when he has food or toys or whatever, as above.
It's been like this since she was a baby. She's always been very mummy-centric. We kept figuring it was just a phase and she'd grow out of it, and it has decreased/increased a little here and there, but never gone away.
I don't know what to do about it. nothing I've tried is working. HELP! Advice??
