The primary difficulty I can see is that the little boy's face is severely damage, particularly the eyes. They're tough to restore realistically. Aside from that, it looks to be a pretty straightforward restoration. Clone, heal, patch, repeat

Red face Do you have...

A small boy picture of someone in your family that i could possible add to this picture? (just the face would give me a clue on how this little boy in this picture would look like).

Ok right now all i can do is add the picture i shall be back later to tell you what i did.

my machine is down while reorganizing the house but here is my assessment, maybe it will help....do forgive my lame descriptions, I am still transferring traditional skills into the digital world.

The little boy seems to be very similar in features to the lady who is seated,
I would try playing around with "stealing" one of her eyes and playing with the free transform thingy. Same thing with his ear, I would use the existing one to re-create the other.

There is enough of the jawline intact to be able to re-create the missing area,
I think there is a tutorial on "painting" in the tutorials section.
Same goes for the eyebrows, I can just make out enough of them to be able to determine what they would look like. (but then again I draw too).
Maybe getting together with a friend or family member who is an artist may help as well.

Looks like much of the rest can be done with the clone tool.

I know it's not much help but hopeful it helps a little bit

I did some really crude outlining in (don't kill me) paint on my limited comp at work just to illustrate what I was talking about....
I freehanded where I thought the features would place based on the shape of the face.
