1. Find out his love languages (they need them all met but usually lean toward one or 2 moreso)- from The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman
2. Have times (dates- call them what you will) where he gets to be alone with mommy, and times alone with daddy.
3. See if he can paint or draw, color, decorate with glue- something special to frame and put over baby's crib.
4. WHen he is upset, don't let him think he's not allowed those feelings- He should be able to tell someone at home that he is jealous, angry, scared, sad, lonely- so he always knows someone is looking out for him, cares about how he feels, and understands.
