What Is Love to a Child?

What is Love to a Child?
Do you really need to ask this question?
Love is the most important thing a child can receive,
Without Love, a child will be cut off from the world,
Without Love, a child will never form meaningful relationships,
Not even as an adult,
Without Love, a child will become feral,
Foraging in forests without feeling,
Without Love, without that positive influence,
Without that steady, guiding hand on the tiller,
The ship will be lost at sea
While the garden goes to weed,
Without Love, a child’s potential goes to waste,
You want to know what Love is to a child,
Love is the difference between a well-adjusted person
And the sociopath,
Bottom-line
