    1 year old not connecting with dad

    It feels like my daughter would rather spend time with anyone but daddy. She screams and throws fits when let with him. He has never really interacted with her and it has really affected their relationship. I just don't know what to do anymore. I want them to have a healthy relationship and I want to be able to get a break at some point.

    Hrmm well i think all kids are different when it comes to this? My step-daughter didn't take too long to 'warm up' to me but i was very interactive with her. I think, with kids, 'sillyness' plays a huge factor. If he can make her laugh by playing pick-a-boo or tickling or maybe even reading her a book? Once she's warmed up to him, it's gets better...but he has put in the effort. My step-daughter will still call out for mom when it's just me and her but for hte most part, as long as i don't ignore her and engage her, she'll be pretty happy and will not have an issue spending time with me. So it's kind of all about how active he is with her and how often and what he's doing with her.
