What is a good way of achieving balance when teaching children about forgiveness so that they are not taken advantage of in the future?

A key here is to include discussions of the virtue of justice along with the virtue of forgiveness.  When a child forgives, he or she needs to be aware of fairness and if the other is not acting fairly, then the one who forgives needs to seek help from an adult authority to help solve the issue of injustice coming from the other child.
