  • She keeps doing it because it makes you feel bad and you give in. Ask her to do something and if she doesn't, get up and make her do it right then and there. The same if she doesn't stop something. If she pulls the, "you don't love me anymore" line simply tell her she is being manipulative and to stop that too.

  • She misses Dad.

  • i wouls say cause she misses her daddy, its hard for little kids to explain how they are feeling and might not know how to deal with thier emotions. Maybe try to be a lil bit more patience and maybe ask her how she feeling and help her explain her feelings. And for the " u dont like me anymore" just sit her down with u and tell her u know thats not true mommy loves u and u know that.
