I’ve seen this show before…


Despite his size and strength advantage, Jack is mostly noise and bluff when he and Dora play-fight. He could hurt her badly if he wanted to, but he is gentle and careful not to injure.

It reminds me of my two sons. Sean was the older with a kind heart and Steve was the berserker. Sean pulled his punches whenever they fought and often got the worst in the battle. I think it was frustrating for him to realize that he was constrained by this own rules of fair play, while Steve apparently figured he could go all-out.

If Jack feels conflicted, he does a good job of not showing it.
