Our expert says:
Sounds like the sort of good faher many women would love to find ; maybe he's infantilozing his "little girl" not encouraging her to grow up, and she may be unwittingly exploiting this, as kids who feel insecure, for whatever reason, tend to do, including becoming more childish in their behaviours and demands. he may also feel sacred, without realizing it, that if he leaves any demands unmet, the child could side more with the mother, who might exploit any such complaint.
It would still be worth discusing these matters with him, calmly, asking whether he feels that it may discourage her from growing up appropiately, when she is babied in these ways --- especially expecting him to cut up her food for her --- what will she do when she eats at the homes of other kids ? Ask to bring Daddy to look after her ?
And wouldn't this be a good issue to sugest that he raise with the "play therapist" who, by the sound of it ( it'snot one of the types of therapy most established to be actually effective at all ) isn't achieving much so far.
And otherwise, Zeena and Mona have it right
