Unconditional Love

The love for a child is unconditional love. The same is true for love between a husband and wife: "I have loved you with an ever-lasting love" (Yirmiyahu 31:2) and "I betroth you forever" (Hoshea 2:21). The same must be true with a child, in every situation, although it is not always easy. There are times when a child will cause you pain, even serious pain. Sometimes he will be filled with distress, bitterness and thorns. You speak to him nicely and he attacks in return. In such a case, something is bothering him. Maybe he is disappointed with himself. At these times, you want to say to him: "You Nudnik!" But this is not right! One must be careful. He must always feel wanted. During every situation, we must express our eternal love for him.
