A Life-Lessons Story

The Story of Passover???

It said that the solution to the wicked son, who is called “the rasha,” was to break that child’s teeth, and on top of that, to make him uncomfortable, to exclude him.

I am sure there is a reason for what the Haggadah is saying that is beyond my understanding

It says to “break his teeth.”
