I wasn't really raised around kids or know much about what type of phases kids go through having only one child so I ask because I don't know :) lately, the past 2 weeks or so, my son who turns 3 in Nov seems to say things like " I don't like you" or "I don't love you" last night we stopped at my moms and she went to try to give him a hug and he said " I don't love you ma, I only love my mom" if he's playing and we want to join in he says, "NO i don't like you, I don't want you to play with me " he does go to daycare if that matters, if that is something picked up at daycare, would I talk to her about it or is this normal part of kids learning feelings? I tell him its not a nice thing to say and tell him we can love mommies, daddies and other people at the same time ..

I would let the other adults and your niece know what's going on and encourage them to tell him it's sad or it's ok and that they love him. I think I'd also talk to the daycare provider to ask if he is doing it there and see how's she's handling it.
