Young Children’s Thoughts About Love



Touching words from the mouths of babes. What does ‘Love’ mean to them?

 A group of Teachers posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds… What does ‘Love’ mean to you?’

 The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think…

When my Grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my Grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s Love. Rebecca- age 8                                                 

‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’      Billy – age 4  

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.’  Karl – age 5

    • Hi Anne; I haven’t done much blogging lately for various reasons; computer problems, medical, travel, etc, etc, etc, but thanks for asking. I thoroughly enjoyed your kids “love” post and just had to share it with others. 🙂 Blessings to you.

        I’m pleased though that you loved the Children’s responses the same as I did, especially with my being a Kid at heart Hmmmmm does that mean I have never grown up ???

        Just wondering – Annie
