maybe try to get some time alone with him...maybe while your daughter sleeps...or have your husband watch your daughter for a few hours and go take your stepson to do something fun. hope that helps! : )

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Just letting him stay up an hour later than his sister will give you a chance to bond with him(have your husband put your daughter to bed when he is visiting). You can spend that hour reading to him or playing a game together.
By 6, little boys can do many different things and they enjoy almost everything. You could take him bowling, to the park, to Mcdonalds, out to ice cream, to the movies, to a roller rink, to the snow, to an art studio, for a bike ride. You could even play a game of catch in the yard while your husband is watching nick jr with your daughter.
Also, you can still bond with him while the family is all together. If you are at an amusement park you could go on some rides just the two of you. If you are all at the beach you can help him dig a really big hole. When you are all together let him know how happy you are about it. If he knows how happy he makes you he will feel like he is just as important as the other kids are. Any chance you get you should tell him how great he is.
