Unhappy 3.5 year old daughter says she doesn't want to be with Daddy

At every handoff to my co-parent for the last couple months, my 3.5 year-old daughter has been saying "I don't want to go with my Dad. I don't like my Dad. I want to be with Mom."

I separated from her Dad when she was 4 months old because he wasn't a source of support in my life.

What do I make of these comments? Is this normal?

I don't think he is abusing her in any way. And I know he has been struggling financially and yet he says he wants to be her father.

Feeling sad and frustrated,

It's pretty normal at this age for kids to feel that way even in a house with both mom and dad under the same roof. Have you tried asking her why she feels that way?
