the golden rule

avery: i know what the "golden rule is, do you?"
mom: yeah
avery: do you want me to tell you
mom: yeah
avery: do unto others as you would have other do unto you (this is where it gets scary). like, if they kick you, kick them and if you punch them, they will punch you.
mom: that isn't what the golden rule means, it means treat them like you would want to be treated. like, when your nice to them, they are nice to you.
avery: thats what i meant mom. what if your nice to them and they are still mean to you?
mom: you only have control over yourself.

he's a genius.
