114. Billy came home from school. He was in the first grade. His eyes were teary. He told his dad that Johnny had pushed him. Johnny had pushed him three times. Billy wanted his dad to go to school with him the next day. He wanted his dad to push Johnny three times. That would teach Johnny a good lesson. He would never push Billy again. His dad said Billy must learn to fight his own battles. He must learn to fight them now. He must stand up for himself now. No one else could fight his battles. Dad said, "The next time Johnny pushes you, you push him back twice as hard. Don't run from him. Don't hide from him. Push him back twice as hard. He'll realize that you're not weak. You must start being strong now, or people will push you around for the rest of your life." 1.4
