2. Focus on the Time You Have Together

Although a bond may not exist now (or ever) or it’s a fragment of what you thought it could (and should) be, keep your focus on the time you two spend together. Just as you would with your own child, one on one time needs to be a priority. This does not have to be hours on end, cost a fortune, or take even a great deal of effort. Realistically this could be cooking together, playing a board game, or reading together, playing catch or putting on a play, going to get a haircut or even grocery shopping. Focus at least some time one on one and it can only strengthen your relationship.
