Through out his toddler years, his eldest brother Buzz would cause trouble around the house and blame it on Kevin. Initially his parents would not believe the lies due to Kevin's age but by the time he was 4, Kevin began causing troubles himself that his parents began believing Buzz's lies to a point that Kevin would become the prime suspect whenever something went wrong in the house.
Kevin and his childhood friends Joey, Scott, and Randy all had been targeted of bullying by a kid name Roy and his own gang of friends. One January, after Christmas Break, Roy beat up Randy after there was a rumor that Randy got some dinosaur pajamas for Christmas.
