  • If he's watching TV on the couch, he's probably not interacting with your daughter very much. Sounds like she's acting out to get his attention more than anything else. Have a serious talk with your husband about how important he is to your daughter's development and her emotional health. He probably doesn't realize that his interactions with her now will shape, to a degree, how she relates to men throughout her life. This page has some interesting points about the importance of a father engaging with his daughter.

  • Sounds to me like your husband is a lazy jerk and needs to get off his rear and be a parent.

  • if youre the only person who disciplines her then shes learned that when you arent there she can misbehave because theres no one to discipline her

  • sounds like as if she is seeking attention.who is watching her when u leave the house? abd r u sure that she gets looked after? not trying to accuse anybody off doing something bad to her but mostly kids misbehave if something is seriously wrong and they r to scared to talk about it.maybe u should have a mother daughter day with her and trying to find out what ever u can find out and grab the problem by its tail

  • because her dad isn't watching her and she CAN... just kids being kids without discipline when you are away.. when the cat is away, the mice will play lol!!
