Every glider has its own personality and while some bond quickly, it might take longer for others. We know that sometimes it might be frustrating, but don't give up!
WITH THE KIDS
We know that getting a new little furry friend is exciting for the young ones, but while bonding it's important to have them remain as quiet as possible, not make any sudden movements, and keep their fingers away from the glider's mouth. You also want to make sure the gliders are being picked up using two hands in a scooping motion and not just grabbed with one hand. If your young one is still a toddler and not out of the "grabbing" phase you want to make sure you teach them to use one or two fingers to pet them instead of grabbing at them.
While you are still bonding with your sugar glider one of the best things you can do is tent time. That allows you to jump in the tent with your gliders and let them explore and play with you in a controlled environment.
You can buy a pop-up bonding tent (a.k.a mosquito net tent) online or in stores.
