Recently I upgraded my Verizon Phone Plan. As part of it, Disney+ was included for free. I wasted little time in watching the Mandalorian. If you are not familiar with it, the main character is The Mandalorian, a bounty hunter with a code. His first job in the series is to capture this highly protected toddler. Generic bad guys are protecting the toddler, probably mostly ignoring him other than feeding him. The Mandalorian defeats the bad guys and captures the toddler. It turns out that the toddler is seemingly anonymous, so viewers call him Baby Yoda.
The Mandalorian turns Baby Yoda into the bad guys that hired him for the job. Then he has a change of heart, and fishes Baby Yoda out of the bad guy’s lair. For the rest of the series he is being hunted by the bad guys and the bounty hunters that they hire. There are lots of adventures, and through all of them, Baby Yoda becomes attached to the Mandalorian. We know this for sure because near the end of the series, a Jedi tells the Mandalorian this, as Jedi’s being able to sense feelings in another Force Sensitive person.
Anyway, throughout the series, the Mandalorian is guiding Baby Yoda on what to do and not do. Explaining that he is keeping him out of trouble with every intervention. Baby Yoda does not speak, but through the oh so cute expressions he seems to show that he understands. Perhaps he has never had such a person in his life before, and really appreciates the sense of security that comes from it.
In the last scene, Luke Skywalker tells the Mandalorian that the cute tyke views him as a father figure. Furthermore, Baby Yoda wants the Madalorian’s endorsement that going with Luke Skywalker to become a Jedi is the right thing to do. It was no doubt difficult to for Baby Yoda to give up the father figure who disciplined him when needed and gave him a sense of security.
Moral of the story — discipline those that you have authority over, and do it a manner such that they realize that you are protecting them.
