Alfie (6)

Alfie, aged 6

"I'm not really sure why I can't live with my mummy and daddy, but our house was always messy and mum used to fall asleep a lot and forget to take me to school. I used to eat a lot of crisps and chocolate biscuits, even for breakfast. Sometimes I was left on my own during the day and there would be a lot of strange people in our house at night. I think it was my social worker, Jane, who decided it would be best for me to live with Lisa. I eat a lot healthier now and go to school every day, but not on weekends! I still get to see my mummy and daddy sometimes too."
