Just like the weather, your lovable toddler could also run hot and cold without warning. Your child might have been happily peppering you with kisses just a second ago but is now shrugging your hand off. Like most parents, you’ll feel really confused when this type of mood shift happens. When your toddler rejects your affection, observe from a distance. There are many reasons why your child does this and some of them aren’t really because of hate or resentment.
