The Meaning of Home

A home is there to let you spend time with your family. A home is there to let you feel safe and comfortable. A home gives you shelter and outside might be cold and inside your home can be very warm. A home is a place where you can rest. After you get home for work or school, you may be tired so at home you can lie on the couch and take a break. A home is a place where you can be yourself and do all the things you want. At home you can lie on you bed or couch and eat chips, play on the phone or something. You can invite your friends over to play with you and celebrate your birthday with your family and friends at home.
When you move, the old house you have been in could turn into someone else’s home and the new house you go in can turn into your own home. Your family can make you feel safe and comfortable at home. Your family can make you happy. You will get used to your new house and it will feel like your old home once again.
At your new house that turned into your home, you can play with your siblings and still invite your friends to play with you. A home is a place that you can study and do your homework quietly without getting disturbed by other people. A home is a place that you can draw, read and learn. You can do a lot of stuff you want at home like you can write diaries and email or text your friends. A home is there for you when you feel unsafe and uncomfortable and when you don’t want to let people disturb you.
