| | Discipline Issues....Help!!!
This is probably more of a parenting question than a question about Down Syndrome. Sydnee is our wonderful 4 year old daughter. Well, she is wonderful most of the time.
Sydnee is very much a "daddy's" girl. She loves to hang out with dad, have daddy dress her, have daddy bathe her, have daddy read books, have daddy make her meals, do you see the pattern? If daddy is around, Sydnee won't allow anyone else to do things for her. Infact when some one tries to help, Sydnee makes comments like "Daddy do it"?, or "Go away Mommy". This is when she isn't "Wonderful".
Daddy has traveled out of town several times recently, and Sydnee does allow mommy to take care of her, and even asks for mommy. Tonight when she was particularly hurtful, I sat her down and tried to tell her how she made mommy feel. I'm not sure she understood.
Does anyone have ideas that would help us teach Sydnee to allow mommy to help take care of her?
