After a brief discussion of the concept of love and contemporary attitudes towards it, the article examines previously unpublished findings about children's ways of thinking about love, using evidence drawn from a research project on the developing sexual values of 9 and 10 year-old children.

The article concludes with a discussion of current inadequacies and future possibilities in schools’ provision.
