Parents wield a great deal of influence over their children, and therefore Dr. Suzuki believed that parents bear the most responsibility for creating the desire to learn in their children. Parents can do this by building and fostering a relationship with their children based on unconditional love.
This episode discusses five aspects of unconditional love, what they mean, and why they are important: acceptance, fairness, predictability, trust, and affection.
The description that I read about the meaning of unconditional love comes from the book entitled, The Message. This is an affiliate link to the book.
