The Police (according to a 5 year old)

Why is it that my 5 year old feels that whenever someone in our family does something wrong you can just call the police and they will put you in jail?

He argues with the hubby over eating his dinner. “Daddy you’re mean! I’m going to call the police and they will arrest you!”

He argues with me over cleaning his toys. “I’m going to call the police and they are going to fire you.”

Apparently the job of the police is to yell at parents when they ask their children to eat their dinner, clean up their toys, take a bath, or basically listen to them.
This explains all of the drugs and gangs in the city now. Police don’t have time to deal with them. There are too many bossy parents around to arrest.
