Meaning is a concept that corresponds to the goals in our lives, as well as why and how we live. The process of giving meaning to life by children is realized through a series of stages within a scale of values. The initial basis of giving meaning to life in children starts with feelings of bonding, trust and love, eventually evolving into the divine. In this process, the parents and family environment on the whole have an incredible influence. This influence develops with feelings of help, sharing, love, compassion and mercy, and forms an atmosphere of meaning around children. The children who grow up in such an atmosphere find it easy to give meaning to life. The fact that search for meaning by children is universal indicates that each child needs to give meaning to life. Otherwise, a crisis will affect the lives of children and make life unbearable. Finding meaning in life almost guarantees joy of life. If there are no goals and meaning in life, children who grow up in cities in particular find themselves alone in crowds and among concrete blocks and fall in a vortex of insecurity and emptiness.
