Kid Wars

Calvin and his friends frequently have ‘wars’ when they have disputes. I’m not sure who came up with this kid logic of “We don’t agree on something. Let’s have a war and the winner gets to decide what is right”. And over something as trivial as what did the substitute teacher ask us to use: pen or pencil? Something that could be solved by asking the teacher is somehow just not obvious to the little 6 and 7-year-olds.  They’d rather fight over it (apparently, catching each other and pinning them down) and then get in trouble with the teachers for violating the rules. Well hopefully, I’ve sufficiently educated our own little barbarian on how to resolve conflicts and convince each other with EVIDENCE instead of resorting to the barbaric ‘might is right’ way.



I yield, I yield!
