My four year old is so attached to me that sometimes I want to run away from her. It's not enough to sit next to her at mealtimes, she has to be touching me. When I take her to preschool, she won't even go put her lunch down, she has to hang on to my leg. Every night, after stories and snuggles, she cries if I don't stay until she falls asleep. I've tried positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, to no avail. Will she ever grow out of this, or will she grow to resent me because she is not getting what she wants?

I agree with mlmsm928 because there will come a day when she will be saying "mom will you just go away and leave me alone"
