Jarius from Texas



from Texas

Jarius is a really great kid. He is often smiling and is fun to be around. Jarius likes to play sports and video games. He is very a smart youth and is on the A/B honor roll at school. He, at times has had difficulty with competing for affection from foster parents if another child is present. Like many children his age, he will, at times, have difficulty if things are not to his liking. Jarius has been working on appropriate ways to express his emotions and has made marked improvements in this area. On occasion he has become physical in his actions when upset. Jarius is very loving and is incredibly protective of those around him, and often plays the role of mediator. Everyone who meets Jarius only has good things to say about him. He seems to make friends fairly easily, but also likes to keep the peace in his relationships. He doesn't like to see others get in trouble and will at times blame himself for others getting in trouble or when bad or sad things happen around him.

Jarius will do well in a two parent home, with a strong male role model. He needs parents who are structured and will maintain a daily routine. His ideal parents will be patient and provide him with praise when he does something well, and consistent re-direction when he breaks a rule. Jarius would love to have a family who is active, and will encourage him to participate in activities that will improve his self-esteem and social skills. He has specifically asked for a family who supports his interests and spends time together doing things like watch movies. He also wants parents who will give him responsibilities to earn allowance and who will develop an open and honest relationship with him.
