Living with a Short Fuse

Th e fi rst letter in this chapter is in the voice of a child who is himself the bully, rather than the bullied. He faults others for his own shortcomings and has an all-too-easily-activated temper. Th e letter-writer expresses a common lack of insight into his own behavior and is unaware of how his actions have an impact on other people, including peers.
