CHILD'S PROFILE (attach additional page if needed)

M was admitted to a children's home on the 3rd December, 1985, from his mother, who said he was beyond control.

M was fairly petite, blonde hair, blue eyes and very under-confident., doing all that was asked of him with no questions asked. m always 'bottled up' his feelings inside and was unable to show his true feelings.

Over a period of months it became apparent that m was a sneaky young lad who could hate to be found out about anything he had done wrong. thus we would end up having a  long faced, sulky boy who would not speak. Over the years m has managed to control his moods, though we still get the sulking, but M now speaks up and sound his views. M still finds any form of criticism difficult to accept and often ends up in tears, though these moods do not last very long if he is left on his own.

M has a good sense of humour and enjoys a laugh and a joke. but on occasions can become over the top and does not know when to stop. he has a catchy laugh and can be quite funny at times.

M is a tidy lad who has all his drawers in order., neat and tidy. he loves his cuddly toys, but his heart is set on football, watching, reading and playing.

m is a bright lad who enjoys his comprehensive school, though at first he found that being a small boy in a large school difficult to cope with after leaving his much loved junior school. M mixes well and says he has quite a few friends, though he never brings any back to the home.

When amongst his peers M is quite nasty towards his sister, often hitting her, pushing or just calling her names. On a one to one basis M is the opposite, he will play with her, laugh with her and behave like a normal brother as there is no need for him to be anything but a brother who should enjoy hi sisters company.

A lot of time has been spent with M in the special room, with regards to 'carers responsibility, needs and relationships' within the family. M has found some of the work very painful, but has understood what we have been covering and why.
