Speaking of argumentative dialogues

Participants: Sara (mum) and Giacomo (2 years)
S (angry voice): "Stop eating all that chocolate!!! I already told you!!!"
G: "But mummy you know, I won't become a big boy if I don't eat enough"


I was silent; defeated by the argumentative attitude of my son, although not completely persuaded by the equivalence about eating and eating chocolate.

Seems like Giacomo has quite an eye for inconsistencies there. Fully explicitized food-recommendations should do the trick* with this little fallacy-police-man! :)

* ... because chocolate can distort standpoints sometimes
