Parenting a Toddler – prefers mommy only

Our 3 year old regularly does not want to spend time with my husband/her father. She much prefers me. Last night she told me she doesn’t like daddy 🙁 This obviously hurts his feelings. I realize I can only manage my own thoughts and not control or coach him and certainly not a 3 year old. How can the model help me in this? I want to be confident as a parent and supportive as a spouse but cannot make my 3 year equally prefer both her and her dad. This causes some tension in our house.
