"If children really learned to love, that would go a very long way toward helping with these morality issues later in life."
We need to support children in their feeling, and help them grow further in feeling love and heart-communion with Reality at a young age.

Children do not need to learn to love. When a child is born it does not know of separation - seeing is happening, hearing is happening and there is no sense that there is someone seeing some thing - there is just unconditioned awareness (unconditional love ). It is only when the sense of separation occurs that there seems to be a need to protect 'myself' from what is 'out there' or 'I' have to get what is 'out there' - fear and desire. The mind will then be in protection mode - seeking security - it will be planning next based on before. It is the sense of separation which causes love to be veiled with fear.

Though children go through growth stages, ie around 3-4 they start to develop a sense of others as separate from self and to share. and various maturing stages, so they lack fine tuned abilities to control impulses or abstract reasoning, with individual variants, they are already Love.
