Children have a great deal to say about love, don’t they?

We adults have had the experience of “falling in love” and for most, if not all of us, it was a wonderful and overwhelmingly emotional experience. But, not to 7 year old Glenn.

He says, "If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don’t want to do it. It takes too long."

10-year-old Regina seems to echo Glenn’s views. "I’m not rushing into being in love. I’m finding fourth grade hard enough."

Today, there are at least three well-known websites that almost guarantee that you will find the right person for you to marry.

What is a kid’s take on potential partners?

10-year-old Mike says this, "On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date."

Eight-year-old Carolyn said this, "My mother says to look for a man who is kind. That’s what I’ll do. I’ll find somebody who’s kinda tall and handsome."

(Slide 1) This is the time of year for significant marker events like marriage, graduation, and, for some excited teens (and their perhaps not so excited parents), getting one’s driver’s license!

It will be 35 years this coming June that I got mine. I was excited! My mother was a nervous wreck! I remember that she started to follow the examiner and me out to the car. But, she was stopped with the words, “I’m sorry, ma’am, you can’t go with us.” She had to wait, for what was probably an eternity to her, and, in some ways, an eternity to me, too.

Then after I successfully passed, I was ready to go get my license. We had to go to another branch to do that and I was ready to drive us there but mom said, ‘No, I’ll drive…’ and then could not remember how to get there!
