BY DONALD TRUMP:
Even in elementary school, I was an assertive, aggressive kid.
In the second grade, I punched my music teacher in the eye because I didn't think he knew anything about music!
I'm not proud of that, but it's clear evidence that even early on I had a tendency to make my opinions known in a forceful way.
The difference now is that I use my brains instead of my fists!
As an adolescent, I was mostly interested in creating mischief.
For some reason I liked to stir things up and test people.
I'd throw water balloons, shoot spitballs and make a ruckus in the schoolyard and at birthday parties.
When I turned 13, my father decided to send me to military school, assuming that a little military training might be good for me. I wasn't thrilled about the idea, but it turned out he was right.
Along the way, I learned a lot about discipline and channeling my aggression into achievement.
Our family was very traditional. My father Fred Trump was the breadwinner, while my wonderful mother Mary MacLeod, whom he married in 1936, not only took care of us five children, she cooked and cleaned and darned socks and did charity work at the local hospital.
"We lived in a large house, but we never thought of ourselves as rich kids."
