...is painting with her Dad whilst I am sat at the table with her 4 month old sister in my arms. Lovely Dad, nicely tells daughter that she can't put any more paint in the washing up bowl to make bubble pictures. She then has a tantrum. She gets down from her chair and now very upset, wants a cuddle from me (and only me).

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I'd give her the cuddle. She's little. Tantrums are normal.

Give her a great big snuggly cuddle. (but still back daddy up).

Give her a hug and say you can see she's upset but daddy has said no and means it.

Give her a cuddle and start another painting.
