Hi!!!

I am barely new in this forum, I have a toddler that is very indepent, she has been in daycare since she was a baby, my husband had an accident when she was 20 days born and he is not capable to have a relationship with her. She know him and she has seen him a couple of times. She went to therapy to mange this.

In the daily activities she always prefers me, over the nanny or her uncle, but when we go to some party or cinema with other friends that are in her school, she attached a lot with them and she doesn't even pay me any attention, when she was in the cinema she went to the sit of the mummy's little friend and even hug her, the mommy is not a usual friend, she just know that is the mom of her friend, so I am really concern that she prefers others, even if she hasn't have a lot of interaction with them, such as the example I gave.

Please your advice, is it normal?

Thanks!

Well, from 9 to 10 hours, weekends are the most relaxing way to have fun for both of us smile

Why are the police present if he has had a brain injury?

His behavior changes after the accident and he turned aggressive

Maybe she's just very sociable? One of mine is a charmer and wins whole rooms over.

How old is your baby?
How many days a week is she in childcare!
Honestly ten hours a day is too long. Unless it's only once a week, then maybe it's fine. But if it's five days a week, then there's your problem. Google attachment disorders and daycare.

Quickly, thats not helpful.hmm

Op, thats a really tough situation. She sounds delightful. Shes more than likely very secure in her bond to you so feels able to leave your side. flowers
