When he is rested and approachable, tell him you want him to feel welcome, relaxed and able to shake off any negative feelings from the job. Ask him what you can do or say or how he thinks that could best be accomplished. Alot of men appreciate some quiet time when they first get home, supper and then they are ready for some conversation and family time. I am not saying that is good, just that it's like that for some guys and worth the effort to make it happen. But, ask him, don't take my word for it, and see what he says. I hope that will help open him up and give you some good time with him after his long day.
