Someone get this kid some pancakes or he will punch again!
Three-year-old Connor punched his brother Aiden because of breakfast-related injustice. Connor may be young, but he understands that Might Is Right. Sure, it's slightly unclear exactly how punching his brother will result in getting pancakes, but it got Dad's attention, didn't it?
Dad's knee-jerk reaction is to spit out the old adage "You can't punch people because you want pancakes." But that is simply a pithy statement with no truth behind it. You can punch people because you want pancakes. You just still might not get any pancakes.
