It will always be very tender to see how two young children of the opposite sex spend the day playing, hugs and kisses and are called 'boyfriends'. Adults have some doubts about love in children and may even be assaulted by worry, do they really fall in love? Do you feel love? What happens to them emotionally? There are those who think that we are the adults themselves who catalog a friendship with affinity between a child with a girl of love and childhood courtship, when in reality we are talking about some normal friendships for a good evolutionary development and that
we must give name to these feelings so that they do not confuse terms . But sure? Because I personally believe that children are capable of falling in love or at least feeling a stronger bond than normal for another.Can children fall in love or is it just friendship?
It is true that when they are two years old they like to play as a couple but they do not identify the gender since this will happen towards the end of the first childhood, with the appearance of gender identity. When children have gender identity they prefer to be with same-sex peers only because
they share common interests or character and because in this way they feel good.It is from 9 or 10 years old when children empezar can begin to feel feelings of reciprocity
in relationships with others, that is why at this stage often 'best friends' also appear. And I can tell you that children do fall in love understanding this love as a strong emotional bond with another person usually of the same age. But regardless of whether it is love or if you are only feeling intensely, if your child is 6 or 10 years old, if your child falls in love or thinks he is ... you should support him and give him all your understanding and never use phrases from type "that's just nonsense"
because you could damage the feelings, and especially not worry about this because it is a natural process. It is also important that you know how to act accordingly so that your child feels understood and respected. For example, if he tells you that he has a girlfriend, do not laugh at him, let alone ridicule him, let him see that you will be there to listen to his feelings and advise him. Shows respect for their feelings, for their privacy and for their personal space. Also do not count in the form of fun what tells you in privacy since
could lose confidence in you
. So without a doubt children can fall in love especially after nine years and with this you should be happy and respect their feelings, at the end of the day it is a stage that will happen but it is healthy to develop it adequately so that they can know yourself better emotionally.
