Dear Mike & Liza,
Our daughter likes my husband better than me. She’s 6, and when he’s not around, she thinks I’m great. She wants to love and snuggle me and be close all the time. But when daddy comes home…it’s all over. She cries and screams and runs to him if I even get near her. It really hurts my feelings.
I have talked to her about it, but it didn’t make any difference. I want to demonstrate how hurtful it is by treating her badly when my husband gets home tomorrow. He says that will just make things worse and I might hurt her feelings too much.
You make the call.
