Okay, so Leah is almost 4. The typical scenario is as follows:
1. I pick leah up from school (she goes half days)
2. We play or read or whatever till dinner time.
3. I have to start fixing dinner - if she wants to help - everything is fine
4. If she doesn't want to help - she starts crying complaining screaming - "I WANT SOMEBODY TO PLAY WITH ME!!!!"
Even if we played for over an hour and I repeatedly warned her "honey, I have to start dinner soon, want to help fix ....?" Doesn't matter. If we play with her all day on the weekend, as soon as I stop...she accuses me, dh, the world in general, of not playing with her enough...and of course, she can't play alone...I am given a look like "what, me play by myself for five minutes, are you k idding?????"
Any suggestions? Is this a normal phase?
