My 3 yr old is starting to say she doesn't like DH. She says it out of nowhere and often times during bedtime (or when she's fighting to do something). He was her favorite up until summer break. But she's never communicated not liking anyone before. He's kind of a big pushover, so I'm wondering if it's a boundaries thing. DH thinks it's because he's the one that usually brushes her teeth, which she hates.

Is this a normal phase? We have no idea how to deal. She usually says she doesn't like her papa and follows up with saying she likes mama. I'm starting to feel bad for DH and have tried to tell her it's not a nice thing to say, but she says it more after I tell her. Did your LO go through this phase?
