My six-year-old son was making out valentine cards for his upcoming classroom valentine party. The teacher helpfully sent home a list of every student in the class. My wife instructed our son to fill out one card for each student in the class.
“But what if I don’t like that person?” he asked.
“You still need to make them a card,” my wife explained.
“But what if they’re mean?” he persisted.
“You still need to give them a card. You need to make a card for every person on that list,” my wife maintained.
As we were putting all the cards together in a bag my wife noticed that he’d done exactly as she told him. There was a card for each child on the class list…including himself.
