Children Asked What Love Is… Their Answers Left My Jaw on the Floor!

A group of professionals asked this question to a sample of children aged 4 to 8: “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, 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, 4

“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.” – Terri, 4

“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.” – Danny, 7

“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.” – Emily, 8

“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” – Bobby, 7

“When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.” – Karen, 7

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross.” – Mark, 6

“You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.” – Jessica, 8

“Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.” – Noelle, 7

“During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.” – Cindy, 8

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.” – Chris, 7

“Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” – Mary Ann, 4

“I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.” – Lauren, 4
