What Love Means to a Child

Red, pink, and all of the hues in-between are all around right now. Tuesday begins the month of love, with Valentine’s Day right in the middle. We do not typically do a lot on this day, but try to do a little something extra for the kids to let them know how much we love them and each other.

What is love?

So what does love mean to a 7 year old boy? I asked this question to NHL and his initial response was that he did not want to answer this question. Hmmm.  . . me thinks he is officially at that point in second grade where things change. Then, when asking his little brother he chimed in: “It means you are dating someone."  Oy, are they already talking about dating people?!

Next, I asked JSL, my 3 year old, what love means to him. His reply is really telling: “It means love”! Of course, he then rattled off a list of random people, places, and things that he loves. Hey wait, was I on that list? Oh that’s right, he said everybody – guess that includes me.

I do believe that boys see things a bit different. To me, love is family, friends, and special memories made with these people. Love it being able to see through the tough times and recall those special moments to keep you going.

Love means letting those that you care about know how much they mean in your world. For me, this could be with a hug, a note to say I’m thinking about them, or a special day together.
