Cole has anger problems and its up to him to fix it. When cole beat up peter it was his own doing and no one else forced him to do anything.
<<< for example the author says "What luck Cole thought. To end up on an island with a stupid bear that didn't have the brains enough to runaway" (Mikaelsen 68). In this sentence he is blaming the bear for his mistake of attacking the bear.
