Emotions, Transforming All of YOU Add comments
What Love means to a 4-8 year old .  This is so touching and so much wisdom from our wisest souls.

Touching words from the mouth of babes.   A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, ‘What does love mean?’

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

‘Love is when you go out to eat and

give somebody most of your French

fries without making them give you any

of theirs.’

Chrissy – age 6

‘Love is what makes you smile when

you’re tired.’

‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee

for my daddy and she takes a sip before

giving it to him, to make sure the taste is

OK.’

Then when you get tired of kissing,

you still want to be together and you

at Christmas if you stop opening presents
and listen.’

little old man who are still friends even

after they know each other so well.’

anybody You don’t see anyone else

kissing me to sleep at night.’

your

face even after you left him alone

all day.’

on the toilet and she doesn’t think

it’s gross.’

you should say it a lot. People forget.’

And the final one

The winner was a four year old child

whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy

went into the old gentleman’s yard,

climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had

said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

‘Nothing, I just helped him cry’
