FREE PDF ↠ BOOK I Think Im OK ß In 1970 I volunteered to leave my family home and enter William Henry Smith School an institution for maladjusted children near Brighouse in West Yorkshire I was 11 years old After almost two years it became apparent that I had exasperated all efforts to control my behaviour and was no longer welcome at the school TMe from those early days I have also managed to acuire the cojones to let all and sundry know the truth As I have used my real name I felt it was only right that I use the real names of other guilty parties the ones who should have known better If you are interested in reading a true openly honest occasionally sad yet often humorous memoir please do buy my book “I Think I’m OK” I assure you it’s far from a ‘misery memoir’ Oh I guess I should point out that there are a few of them there naughty sweary words included sorry about that i got this book as it mentioned a place in newton aycliffe where i used t live as i was interested instead i forgot all about it and really enjoyed how this young fellow got himself into soo much trouble yet even though he got older i still found myself thinkin of him as a child a very brave lad with strength yet a heart of gold but was portrayed as a pain not the child who needed help and understanding

Ounty Durham As incredulous as it may seem at the age of 14 I was expelled from the Approved School and returned to another children’s home back in my home town of Bradford True to form I was kicked out of this home too The above is pretty much the sum of my family and friends knowledge of my childhood and to be fair it’s hardly surprising that I was judged frowned upon and uite often avoided like a crusty pair of Y fronts I am now 53 years old and have managed thanks to the Freedom of Information Act to obtain official records held about I chose to read this book for two reasons The first it is set near my hometown of Leeds in West Yorkshire The second it was free for kindle and had fairly good reviews I'm so glad that I did decide to read itThe story is if course a very sad story a story of a misunderstood child brought up in children's homes However the author has clearly dealt with his past issues his demons and his anger He tells his story in his own words in such a way that I was chuckling out loud on several occasions Even though he's a little shit I really loved him His story is so real I felt I was there every step of the way feeling what he felt experiencing the things he experienced He was a good kid at heart just dealt a rough deal I found this really easy reading even though some of the book deals with some uite tough and fairly heavy issuesI love a happy ending and Steven's story does in its own way have a happy ending Fair play to him for writing what must have been a pretty tough fairly harrowing book to write He gets his story across makes his points admits his faults and blames nobody else I really liked this book READ IT YOU WILL TOO

I Think Im OK In 1970 I volunteered to leave my family home and enter William Henry Smith School an institution for maladjusted children near Brighouse in West Yorkshire I was 11 years old After almost two years it became apparent that I had exasperated all efforts to control my behaviour and was no longer welcome at the school This was a pattern which continued for the next few years of my life I was moved from a children’s home in Bradford to a secure unit in York from which I managed to escape on two occasions I was then sent to an Approved School in C Honest and heartfelt reflection and biography of a young boyman deemed a troublemaker by society I can't say what I liked the candid approach the author took to writing his own story the under emphasis of heartbreaking events or the take it on the chin attitude he displayed during that time At first I thought alright a divorce and step dad that can't be enough for him to just start acting completely off the rails Then he just slams the reader with it No detailed graphic visual images just his thoughts and flashback of the events The way it was presented made it even powerful Suffice to say one of the most important terms in the book are the words running away Running away from the hidden terror I found it unforgivable that the Social Services laid so much emphasis on his fathers sexual orientation and the child being exposed to it because the so called experts put it on the same level as deviant behaviour Of course that meant that they didn't look for the real reason for his behaviour and in doing so ended up presenting him on a platter to exactly those deviants they were supposed to be saving him from I was surprised at the angry outburst at Val because there wasn't one towards Derek Philip or even his mother Then he pinpoints it himself the fact that the powers that be and adults around him called him a liar was of importance because that meant they would never believe him when and if he told them what had happened at the beginning of his journey I admire the author for having the strength to finally confront his inner demons and the living ones I gather by the last chapter that he wasn't alone in being a victim and I hope that the abuser receives the Karma he deserves and that the other members of the family he abused will be able to face their demons also
