Happy Birthday Trophy Issue?

I'm doing all the requirements for the trophy, I finished Ethans drawing, I set the table with the plates, and I played outside with the kids. And I still didn't get the trophy, what am I doing wrong?

I did get all the way to Chapter 2, I actually got over to Chapter 3, "Sleazy Place" And it still didnt show, then I redid it and it still didnt pop up.

I really do appreciate you guys trying to help me out, but in response to your answers, I did do all of the drawing, where the last part is when he signs it at the bottom right hand corner, then he says i'm done or something like that and you wont be able to do it anymore. I also set the table right away, when the wife first asked, I did it immediately. I did it way before she asked me to do it a second time. And I let Jason beat me, and I let beat Jason on two separate occasions and still didnt get it. And I do get all the way to the Sleazy Place chapter to insure that I get it. But I still dont. I guess I'll keep playing it over some more, but let me tell ya, I'm really starting to hate the Prologue. And especially in the mall when hearing Ethan go "JASON", "JASON" ......... its so annoying now.

This trophy is somewhat really tricky to get. I just tried it 3 seconds ago and got it. This is what I did. I started a new game and saved it in the 2nd save file since I already beat the game. Then I just did what Ethan is supposed to do. This is what I did.
I shaved, took a shower, got dressed, went downstairs, completed the drawing. After I completed the drawing, I went to drink a cup of coffee and then drank some Orange juice and then went outside and laid/waited until Grace and the kids got home.
After they arrived, I helped Grace with the groceries, set the table perfectly and then went to talk to Grace. Not sure if you have to do that but I did. Once that was done, I went outside, swung Jason around and then picked up Shaun and ran around until it automatically stopped me. After that, you pick them up to show your strength. Then I did the sword fight, got some hits in, and let Jason defeat me. I did the rest of the prologue all the way to the "Sleezy Place" chapter load and got the trophy. Hope this helps.

Sony granted Heavy Rain this special thing called "Delayed Trophy Support". Basically this means you get the requirements for the trophy but it doesn't pop. This is in place to not effect or disrupt the gameplay. IIRC, you'll get it beginning of Chapter 2.

I just got it, the achievement is ambigious; not only do you have to play with your kids but you MUST let Jason beat you in a sword fight, just fail all the commands. Also make sure to complete the drawing but doing everyone of the "challenges" when you press down near the writing utensils.

NickG88 isn't correct. I beat Jason during the sword fight, as well as set the table and completed Ethan's drawing. Make sure you do all of Ethan's drawing, as there are several parts, you just need to remember to select the option to keep drawing until it's finished, which he will indicate. Also, I got all the way to Sleazy Place before I actually got the trophy.

Hmm that's odd because I did it once before and it didn't give me the achievement, then I did it again and lost on purpose and got it, strange coincidence I guess.

I believe the situation with this trophey is that if the wife has to remind you to set the table then you will be penalized by not receiving the trophy... I was reminded the first time and was not adequately granted my trophy.

Someone also said that you need to do 2 laps with shawn on your shoulders. I think with all these different possibilities, it has to be a glitched trophy. I still haven't got it.

Basically this trophy is like a "complete the training course" type trophy. In order to get it you must complete the training course throughout the house before time runs out. In this case, before the kids come home. From brushing your teeth, taking a shower, take a drink of juice or coffee, finish the drawing, turn on radio or tv, etc. They want you to do this so you can get familar with the controls for the game.

Also, once you go upstairs to see Shuan and the dead bird, you could just quit and load another chapter. Once you're in the loading screen you'll get the trophy. You could do this for all trophies, so you don't have do play the whole chapter in order to get the trophy.
