He doesn't like to see others get in trouble, and will often blame himself for them getting in trouble or negative things that happen around him.
Jarius will benefit from a two-parent home, with a strong male role model. He needs parents who are structured and maintain a good daily routine. They will be patient and provide him with praise when he does something well, and consistent re-direction when he breaks a rule. He would love to have a family who is active, and encourages him to participate in activities. Jarius has expressed a specific interest in a family who supports his interests, spends time together (doing things like watch movies), gives him responsibilities to earn allowance, and who have an open and honest relationship with him.
