About Harold H.

Harold H. lives with his father in a small apartment in Rodentia, USA. Harold's parents separated when Harold was .25 years old (in dog years). Harold became really sad after his parent's separation and started spending more and more time by himself at home. His father became worried about his son and tried to get him to play with the neighborhood kids. Harold refused. Harold was not trying to be difficult- he simply had no desire to spend time with others.

Dr. Woodchuck knew what was going on at home. He tried to get Harold to talk about his sadness but it was hard for Harold to open up. Dr. Woodchuck has worked with Harold's teacher, Mr. Sneely, to get Harold to spend time with some of his classmates at school. Mr. Sneely has tried, but he also does not want to push Harold if he is feeling uncomfortable.

When Harold is home, he enjoys collecting stamps, eating granola bars, and looking at cat pictures online.
