This is Angelino.
He is an 11-year-old boy.
Meet Angelino! A very creative Angelino enjoys working with tools, constructing things and building with his Legos. He is an athletic child who plays on both a soccer team and a basketball team. He also spends his free time watching football. While Angelino is easy to get along with and has a great sense of humor, he is beginning to learn the tools to make and maintain peer relationships as well as learning to accept affection from his caregivers. He needs encouragement to feel proud of his accomplishments.
Angelo would benefit from a two parent family who can provide him and his sisters with structure and clear boundaries. The family needs to have a lot of patience in order to teach the sibling group how to maintain healthy sibling boundaries with each other. The family also needs to be able to accept their bond as siblings as well as accept them as individuals. Angelo and his sisters would benefit from being the youngest/only children in the home as they need support and guidance so the children can continue working in therapy in regard to their trauma behaviors.
