What is love? Kids Response

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.” Terri – age 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 – age 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 – age
8

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

“If you want to learn to love
better, you should start with a friend
who you hate
,” Nikka – age 6Ā 

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

“Love is like
a little old woman and a little old man
who are still friends even after they
know each other so well.” Tommy – age
6

“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 – age 8

“My mommy loves me more
than anybody . You don’t see anyone
else kissing me to sleep at night.”
Clare – age 6

“Love is when Mommy gives
Daddy the best piece of chicken.”
Elaine-age 5

“Love is when Mommy sees
Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says
he is handsomer than Brad Pitt .”
Chris – age 7

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

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

Karen – age 7

“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 –
age 8

And the final one — Author and
lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked
about a contest he was asked to judge.
The purpose of the contest was to find
the most caring child. 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”
