I've had my gliders since October 17th. I had less time than I the past few months. Now I have the time. I'm wanting to bond with them. Prissy is really hyper and doesn't want to stay still for long, while Athena is skittish, but stays in one place a lot. I'm wondering if there's any tips and the stages pf bonding. Thanks!

if you do a search, you should find a TON of write ups about bonding.

to start you need lots of patience, some glider bond fast, some very slow and
I have rescued a few that never get 100% comfortable with humans.

The gliders need time. time to get used to the idea that the HUGE human
coming after them is a friend and NOT looking for dinner. Time counted in months!
not days.

Gliders are scent driven. so your scent is very important to them or any
scent is very important to them that is on you. So a glider may continue to crab
in the pouch because it can't see you or smell you, some every time you create
a disturbance. Some never quite crabbing.

If you still would like some suggestions, just add to the post.
