Hi mums, I am looking for ideas on forming a bond with my boyfriends 3 yr old son. He is very shy. I am not wanting to replace his mum. Any ideas?

  • Good on you for trying to bond. Maybe suggest some activities that you can all do together, like playing ball, playing at the park. Also make sure he has time by himself with his dad. Good luck


  • You’re already doing well being sensitive, thinking about what HE is like. Take it slow, he will likely take a while to warm up to you. What does he like? Maybe start in house so baking (send some back to the mum if there’s a good relationship. He may like baking for her). Go to a park once he gets comfortable. Just small frequent activities and chats will build a relationship. Like throwing a ball together. Get him to help you with a chore and praise/encourage/thank him. Good luck!
