My daughter has been acting different since my boyfriend proposed: Thoughts?

Hey, mama, 's I need some advice. My daughter had always loved my boyfriend, they’ve always been super close shes always wanting to hang out with him and call him on the phone and says she loves him. Well, he proposed to me a few weeks ago with my daughter there, and since then, she has acted completely differently towards him. She doesn’t wanna talk to him and acts like she doesn’t like him at all except for when it’s just the two of them in a different room, then she is just fine and plays with him until it’s the three of us then she acts as she hates him. I’m at a loss of what to do. I mostly think it’s just because she’s afraid things are changing so much. Has this happened to any of you?

Yeah I would like to know how old she is because maybe there was something going on that you didn’t know about and now she’s mad because he proposes to you. I hate to say that but this sounds really fishy

Sounds like he’s jealous and not of him, of you. Maybe she has a crush on him?

That raises some red flags to be honest. Put up a secret camera and record what’s going on. If you see nothing wrong, maybe she is just jealous. It’s best to not take risks when it comes to your kids

Hmm depending on her age if she is younger she might be jealous or have like a little crush on him but I’d be really careful I hate to say it but something is off about this

The way this was worded sounds completely wrong and makes me wonder how old your daughter is…and what was going on between the two depending in age

Jumping to conclusions guys. I admit it sounds like she may have had strong feelings for him but as for anything going on? There is no solid proof. Kids often get funny when a parent’s partner gets serious because all of a sudden they feel they might not be the centre of their own parent’s attention. They can get resentful and jealous. Not because of their feelings towards the incoming step parent but because they feel their safe place is threatened.

How old is your daughter? Xxx

Idk why this is raising so much alarm for some people… It’s probably just bc it’s a big change & she knows things will be a little different soon. Maybe try to do alot of activities with all 3 of you & make sure she’s included & feels as such!

Wow. All of you women go to the worst assumption. It could be she loves him and is just jealous of her momma getting her first crush. It doesnt mean he has abused her… she loves him because mom does and he is probably the best role model for this little girl. I remember having a crush on a grown man when I was 5 I was so upset he also proposed and I was furious! I would talk to either of them forever. This seems innocent mom. Talk to your daughter. DO NOT LET THESE WOMEN POISON YOUR ENGAGEMENT BECAUSE THEY ARE NEGETIVE.

Definitely need to know how old she is. it sounds like shes jealous that you and him are getting married … it’s like your taking her crush away from her… so it sounds like it’s something that will pass with time, and communicating to her that he loves her too all the same and nothings changing
