Fascinating insight into how children show and need to be loved. Each child is different and this book gives parents and caregivers the tools to ensure their child/children are getting the love language they require to flourish emotionally and physically.
A book totally focused on making practical changes to maximise positive outcomes in relationships. All the greatest communication skills in the world won't build excellent relationships unless you speak the other person's love language. Also teaches why disciplining in a love language can not only hurt, but DEEPLY DAMAGE your relationship with your child. This was an 'ah ha' moment for me after 15 years of parenting, as to why some of my children need one style of discipline, and others need different. Smacking/ time out/ strong verbal correction if used with the wrong love language totally backfires, because they leave a deep wound beyond which the child cannot hear your message. I've been able to apply this to my marriage too. (No spanking parents or children around here, but using for reference as if your child is kinesthetic and thrives on healthy touch, then it's *never* going to work, and that's why!).
I found this book quite interesting, and a quick read. I bought it to read as a refresher, as it is many years since I brought up my own children. Most of the information is obvious, in retrospect, but nevertheless I found it interesting.
What an amazing book. It explains why one child reacts one way and another child reacts differently. I love the use of stories to explain the different love languages. A must have for every parent. It will save a lot of child-parent broken relationships
Another book in the love languages series, this one is full of exmples on how to apply the principles to children, if you are familier with the love langues series then you cant really learn much new from this that you couldnt figure out from reading the marriage love langues book. However if you are new to this series and want to know how to love your children better or are wondering why your children might not be loving you as much as you love them than this is a great book. the Christian values are very subtle and anyone could learn something by reading this book!
