I am glad that someone said that part too.

I am puzzled why self-defense would suddenly be an issue, and not like a part of his childhood also. Didn't the boy himself ever express an interest in making fists and doing things with them? If not, it's not a good idea for him to even start thinking about it, because other kids are like 300 internalized-trauma violent episodes ahead of him.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
