She will tell him things like "I hate you because your not my dad" or "I don't like you" and she will not say why. He tells her that he knows he isn't her dad but that he still loves her and cares about her very much. What can I do? She doesn't do it in front of me, he tells me about it. She is also telling people that she wishes mom and dad were together. I have no idea what to say to her :(Answer Question
Well, you could start by telling her that you like it when she expresses herself but that it's not acceptable to say she "hates" anyone. Also inform her that both her mommy and daddy love her very much but mommy and daddy can't live together (or whatever the situation is). Just keep reinforcing the positive in her but I wouldn't allow her to say she "hates" anyone. She's 4 and she just needs time to readjust.
