What love means to kids

Got this from a blog.

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, “What does love mean?”

“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 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

“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

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

nd 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 neighbour 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 neighbour, the little boy said, “Nothing, I just helped him cry.”
