About Alfred A.

Alfred A. was born a few towns away from Rodentia, USA and became very unhappy when his parents let him know they had to move to Rodentia, USA for Alfred's father's job. Alfred was 6 years old and this was around the time when he stopped listening to his parents. Alfred's parents didn't quite know what to do. They would try and be patient with Alfred, but a lot of times they would get tired and yell at their son. This only made things worse.

Dr. Woodchuck has worked with Alfred's parents to help them understand how yelling at Alfred isn't going to get him to listen to them. Dr. Woodchuck let them know that Alfred needs positive attention, especially because he gets in trouble a lot at school and is always being sent to the principal, Mr. Hamberger's, office. Alfred's parents are trying to listen to Dr. Woodchuck's suggestions and be understanding but it is not always easy. 

Alfred enjoys collecting (and sometimes eating) rocks and playing Super Mario Brothers.
