I was excited to read “The 5 Love Languages for Children”. I’ve read Dr. Chapman’s “5 Love Languages” book many years ago, but I never thought about my children needing to have a specific love language to know they were loved too.
“The 5 Love Languages for Children” explains each language and how it may look to a child. After you read through each of those chapters the book gives you the tools to know how to identify your child’s love language. What I love is it also is focused on different age groups. How you approach your child and learn your child’s love language is different as they grow.
“The 5 Love Languages for Children” also explains the importance of showing all 5 of the languages to your kids often. This will show them how to show others they love them by using their friends’, family members’, peers’ love languages.
Each chapter has highlighted important points throughout it too. As well, at the end of each love language chapter there is a section with helpful ideas on how to show your child love though their language.
I would HIGHLY recommend “The 5 Love Languages for Children” to every household. I think a major break down in a family is not being able to show love in the way we “speak”. I believe this book will help with less distance between one another and more “happy” times together.
I learned though this book that Moo, who is 2.5 years old, has the love language of “physical touch”. She is constantly looking for hugs and kisses. She’ll come up to me and say, ‘I’m sad, need a hug”. She loves to gather us all together and do a group hug. She also loves to give tickles all the time. For Lee, who is 6, it was a bit harder. I see “word of affirmation” and “quality time” both for her. She loves to give positive words for things we do and LOVE to say “I love you” many, many, many times a day. She even got sad one time when I said “I love you” to Moo but didn’t say it to her. But she also loves spending time with us. We just celebrated her birthday this weekend and we took her to a children’s museum and out to eat and played at a park with her. She told me “This is the best birthday weekend ever!”
I love what I’ve learned from this book and I plan on reading it through again and hope my husband will read it too so we can learn together what our children’s’ love languages are.
