Default Attention Seekers

Does anyone have a kid to acts completly different around you when the parent is around? I have the situation where i watch family so my niece always acts more clingy to her mom when they all come over for a visit opposed to when shes just with me. When her moms there she gets an attitude and desnt act the same.... maybe its her trying to get her moms attention.

Oh, yes. Almost every child acts differently when their parents are around. Generally not for the better, either.

Oh yes...completely normal!! I have a 4yo dcb that I have been watching since he was 1 yo. He is such an angel, he listens to me, follows directions, eats every bite of food I give him, takes 3 hour naps, comes and gives me hugs etc I could go on and on!!

The second his mom or dad get here OMG this child acts posessed!! Starts running around screaming, hitting his dad where it counts, one time he ripped his moms shirt because he was clawing at her shirt (he was still BFing at the time) just super crazy!!

Anyways! I digress!! I think its a childs way of showing they have feelings about being left at daycare. And possibly this may be the way they act with their parents all the time.
