What Love means to 4-8 year old kids ...  
Slow down for three minutes to read this.
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, deeper, 
and more profound than anyone could have ever 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 - âge 8  


'Love is what's in the room with 
you at Christmas if you stop opening presents 
and just listen.'  

Bobby - age 7 


'If you want to learn to love better , 
you should start with a friend who you hate. '  

Nikka - age 6 
(we need a few million more Nikka's on 
this planet)



'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 

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 

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 Robert Redford.'  

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.'(what an image)  

Karen - age 7  



'Love is when Mommy 
sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think 
it's gross..'  

Mark - age 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 - age 8  

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 
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'
