We've found that when out daughter says she wants to spend time with something alive, whether it be my husband, me or the dogs, she is mean to them. For example she will squeeze really hard, or kick, or hit, ect..... I'm not sure why she does that and if you ask her she says I just want to spend time with who ever. Any advice how to make this stop?Answer Question

I agree, it depends on her age. If she's under 5, I'd suggest an evaluation by Early Intervention. This is a red flag that you need to follow up on to see where the behavior comes from. Does DH or someone else squeeze her hard? She could be modeling what happens to her.
