Question: Do I understand correctly that nature instinctively instilled love for children in us only so that we would learn to treat other people the same way?
Answer: Yes and no. Over time, love for children will change. It is already changing. Today, people relate to children differently than before.
Throughout all generations there has been a draw, caring, and love for children, but all this is changing.
Since our desire, understanding of the world, and method of communicating with the outside world are changing, naturally, the attitude toward children as a part of the world is changing too.
