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.
You know why we love kids? Because they can see the world with pure innocence that we adults no longer can.
Their childlike faith becomes a reminded that we need to be like them in order to be happy too.
But here's the problem.
We're so busy with our careers, businesses or professions we leave the kids unsupervised.
They watch music television and they see all those naked and half naked artists doing their thing and they might confuse that with love.
They watch television. Boy meets girl in the bar, girl picks up boy goes to their apartment and do their thing. Our kids watch stuffs like that and they might confuse that with love.
I was in a shopping mall one time and as I entered a sports shop they were playing a Filipino song from one of the more famous bands we have and to say that the lyrics were obscene would be the understatement of the year.
Our kids listen to music like these and they might confuse it with love.
There's a big difference between lust and love and prohibiting our kids from reading, watching and listening to garbage is no easy task.
May I propose that we need to spend time and guide them through and teach them what is right and wrong.
I watch TV and listen to music together with my children and explain to them what is right and what is wrong.
The work is harder but I simply have to do it.
The world will continue to decay and immorality will continue to increase.
But there is no business for me that is more important than the business of raising up my kids to become godly people so they can live productive lives.
Arts, music and literature will continue to feature garbage and we cannot isolate our kids from it.
But the best thing we can have them see, hear and watch is the quality of life and love parents demonstrate on each other.
I don't know about you but the best thing I can do for my kids is to love their mother and make sure she's the only one I love.

I have lived my life for a good many years and have never heard anyone say, ‘I wish I had entered that adulterous relationship or “If I can live my life again, I would have stolen more money.”
