Tips on raising spirited boys

I don't know if it's just my spirited boys or what, but they need more attention. More one on one attention the better it seems. They have to know you are paying attention to them. Eye contact, etc. They also need more affirmation and praise for some reason. Lots of patience and activity are in order as well.

What other tips can you add to the list because I'm drawing a blank?!
