In our house because of the Hayden and the time he demands from everyone, it is so important that we find time as a family and individuals to bond outside the stress of our everyday life.

I know that Andre needs this time and that he shows the need to be seen and heard without having to compete all the time.

I have been thinking about this and what we can do about this.

1.  Find time each morning to talk just a little to start the day off in a positive way.  This (as I all ready do this) is the first thing I do each morning before anyone else is up.

2.  Make sure I find something each day to celebrate with him about.  It might be something at school or achieved at home.  Include Dad in this discussion.

3.  I have been encourging father and son time.  At the moment it has come to playing golf together but it also includes lego, outside jobs around the house, making dinner together etc.

4.  Tell him how much I love him.  Sadly I feel I need to do this more but I am on a mission.

I am on a mission.  Hopefully we will find some success.
