My four-year old has been saying this and it's starting to get on my nerves. He's 4, isn't he old enough to understand about "hurting someone's feelings"? I wouldn't mind if he said he liked daddy better, What I mind is him telling me "I don't like you" over and over again. I've explained that it makes me sad when he says that he doesn't like me. He seems to think that he can only like one person and that person for the time being is daddy. Has anyone else had this experience?
He doesn't do this when I'm reprimanding him or putting him in a time-out. He just says it periodically.
