How to deal with jealousy?

I have a 4 year old daughter and she is very jealous when it comes to me. She gets really jealous when she sees me and her father showing any kind of affection. When she sees us hugging or laying down next to eachother she walks away with a sad little face and hides behind the couch. I tell her to come and lay down with us but she refuses. Whar should I do or will it pass?

  • Don't play in to it. Ignore her when she does it. Addressing it enforces it as an attention seeking behavior for her.
