Last night, M sighed that "nobody else likes what I like and nobody is ever going to vote for my field day theme idea".
Hmm... He's probably right. Sad. We talked through the procedure his teacher will use and I pointed out that if he wants his idea to be chosen, he has to make a suggestion his classmates would be exited about. "She'll take everyone's suggestions. Then everyone will vote on the one they like best. Whichever one gets the most votes wins. So it's fair."
"How is it fair, when nobody else in my class even likes Egyptian gods?" Touché.
