I try to let Bob do as much as possible for himself. Today he was trying to open a Jar and after watching him struggle with it for a few minutes I could see his frustration setting in, I said "Do you want me to help you with that? Sometimes they put the lids on stuff way too tight." He handed me the jar and I popped it open and as I handed it back I said. "Well, look at that. You must have loosened it for me".
I could visibly see his chest swell as he gained back his "manliness" from that one little statement. A reminder that just a simple gesture or statement can make him feel so good!
