A boy from Coventry has become the youngest-ever reported case of an affliction that is sweeping Britain, when he was diagnosed by his mum as suffering from Juvenile Dementia.
Sharon Chavez, of the Burberry Estate in the city, said her 5-year-old son Dwayne, had started to display all the characteristics of the condition, becoming lackadaisical, childlike and forgetful, and health experts had later confirmed her worst fears.
The 18-year-old mum told reporters that the toddler had a "vacant look" on his face, and "forgot things". This behaviour had come to a head recently when the lad had been playing with some of his pals, and had returned home without some of his toys.
"I asked him where his stuff was, and he said he couldn't remember", says his mum, who added:
"His bike and his MP3 were gone, and his marbles were missing. We looked everywhere for them - under his bed, in the garden and even asked his mates if he'd left them there. We got the bike and the MP3 back, but his marbles have gone."
Child psychology expert Ronald McDonald told the Spoof:
"This is why children shouldn't be allowed to have children."
