Alfie's mum Mel, who was also on the show, said her son is 'calmer' and 'politer' thanks to the school, where Sharon said staff concentrated on his self-esteem and 'how he felt emotionally'.Alfie was just seven when he got excluded for ongoing bad behaviour, which resulted in Mel being called in to speak to teachers every day.He was only meant to stay at the school for two terms but ended up staying for over a year, and he will be returning to mainstream education in September.Mel has seen the difference in her son, telling Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes: 'He's a lot calmer, a lot politer, he knows what's gonna tip him over the edge.
So I gave my son a crash course in video game history, compressing 25 years of gaming history into about four years. My son is amazing, he loves video games, and more than anything, he loves playing them with me.
Then the Play Station and N64, Xbox and GBA, and so on until we’re caught up with the modern era of gaming.
Would that child better appreciate modern independent games that don’t have the budgets of AAA monstrosities like Destiny and Call of Duty?
After a year, move on to the 8-bit era with the NES and Sega classics.
The next year, the SNES, Game Boy, and classic PC adventure games.
