To be their best, children need to feel loved. But if you and your child speak different love languages, your affection might get lost in translation, affecting the child’s attitude, behavior, and development. Dr. Gary Chapman’s groundbreaking Five Love Languages series has helped millions of couples communicate love more clearly, and Dr. Ross Campbell M.D. has applied the innovative system to children as well. The 5 Love Languages of Children gives practical suggestions for learning how your children interpret love and creating a sense of security in which they can thrive.
5 Love Languages of Children Are:
- Physical Touch
- Words of Affirmation
- Quality Time
- Acts of Service
There is a kid's book called The Perfect Pet for Peyton I reviewed here (there is a giveaway for that as well if you enter before 4/18). That teaches children about the Love Languages as well. You can also find additional information by visiting The5lovelanguages.com. These books are available at your local book retailers as well as online at Amazon.com. You can find additional information on Facebook as well.
I really enjoyed this book. I feel like it was a simple concept yet it is eye opening to me. I like how it gives you practical applications at the end of each chapter for how to give the kind of love your child is craving. Honestly all children need and should have all 5 languages and this was a healthy reminder to apply them more for each of my kids. The book also addresses discipline which is a huge help. I don't think as parents we often have the right tools in that area. I will definitely be recommending this book to read for all my friends with school aged children.
