Just a couple things I wanted to add to my last reply. You can
get a travel carrier if you don't have one already, and take
the bird on fun outtings like car rides WITHOUT your mom...Just
you and the bird, and also you can be the only one who offers
the bird his very favorite treat...
You an also be the only one who *rescues* the bird from the
floor when he ends up on the floor. You can get a shower perch
and be the one who takes the bird into the shower with
you...Act animated during the shower time, singing, acting
silly, who you both get soaked!
The thing NOT to do is to get your feelings hurt (I know, very
hard to do, but remember that this is just natural bonding
behavior...and so don't end up pulling back, ultimately having
NO relationship with the bird at all, unless that woudl be OK
Best of luck!
