Looking back on it now, Parthenia Colbert says she should have known long ago that something was wrong with her daughter.The first hint came in 1986 soon after Ms. Colbert moved to Kansas with her husband. Sherry, then 20 and an unwed mother, had chosen to stay in Annapolis. One day a friend of Sherry's called Ms. Colbert and told her Sherry was hooked on drugs. Ms. Colbert didn't believe it, but she flew back to Maryland to see for herself. Sherry's apartment was a mess and she didn't look well, but Sherry denied anything was wrong, and Ms. Colbert wanted to believe her daughter.

Q. I am a stay-at-home mother of an 18-month-old girl. Since she was 6 months old, she has shown a definite, often intense preference for her father -- particularly during stressful times. Most of the time, I try very hard not to overreact or even show much emotion about her choice, but I do occasionally feel hurt and rejected. I have read articles on development focusing on a child's shifting preferences, but my daughter's preference has been consistent. When I see other children clinging to their mothers, I wonder where I went wrong.

A ROLE REVERSAL I AM NOT ashamed to admit: my daughter has taken up the badge and gun of the food police. When my children were young, that was my role. I held out longer than most against fast food, and there was a starch, a protein and a vegetable every evening at dinner. However, during all that time, I was an admitted Diet Coke addict. I could barely make it to 11 a.m. before I had my first belt, and that bubbling brown liquid was never far from me after that. I had a Diet Coke in my cup-holder as I drove and in my hand as I walked.
