Our 5 year old son told us that he wants to buy flowers for a girl at school during valentines' day, and she likes him. We were shocked to say the least, and we never expected this. We didn't show our shock to him because we are trying to encourage him to speak to us about anything bothering him, in case he encouters some problems at school like bullying. But we don't know how to manage this. We are glad he told us, which gives us an idea of what's happening in his mind, but how do we manage this biblically? Firstly, does he break Matthew 5:28, or is it just an innocent children's stage? Secondly, will this crushes end on their own at some stage, or is it a gateway to fornication?
I just realised just how difficult it is trying to raise children for God.
