Why does baby act out when her dad gets home?

Hi there! I'm new here. My 18 month old gets so excited when her dad gets home from work but soon after she whines and just acts out more than she does all day with me. Any suggestions on how to help change this? Thanks!

  • Lol at my house its opposite, my daughter is an angel for my husband. See if he can spend some 1 on 1 time with her. Even if its just 15 minutes a night (it will give you a break too). That way she isnt so desperate for his attention. Does he give into her when she wines and cries? Maybe she thinks thats how she gets her way?

  • I agree with Jodi, plus she wants to test to see what gets his attention the most.
