The 5 Love Languages of Children: The Secret to Loving Children Effectively is a book from The 5 Love Languages series by Gary Chapman that focuses on children. I actually first read this book before the marriage version, since I was curious on how I could show my son love that he could accept. As a mom, a lot of times I focus on my kids and their happiness first and then move on to my marriage, which I’m pretty sure other moms can relate to. This book gave me an insight on how my 8 year old son feels love coming from me and others and what I can do to help him feel more loved. I quickly started asking him questions as advised in the book to figure out his love language, which didn’t surprise me after reading the whole book. I also wanted to double check and had him take the quiz for kids 9 and up here and of course Quality Time was his result. That explains all the “Look mommy, Look, Look, Look, etc.” This insight of the love languages made me understand that he needed more time to spend with me and that if he tells me to look at something that I should take the time to do so, even if its just two minutes. The 5 Love Languages of Children: The Secret to Loving Children Effectively is awesome to read and to learn more about the 5 Love Languages and how they pertain to children specifically. It goes through each of the love languages with details and examples. There are stories of other children and their families and how the love languages concept helped them. Also, there are tips of how we can show our love to our children through their specific love language. Dr. Chapman even has answers given from kids and how they felt loved or not loved by their parents. Our kids may feel love differently than we expect and in order for them to feel our love, we may need to speak their love language. If you’re interested in this book, then you can grab it here. If you want the marriage edition you can check out my reviews for the gift-sized version and the full sized version. Remember to have fun learning the love language way!! 🙂
Why I love it: It’s detailed, has good tips and advice, contains relatable stories, has answers given by children, and helps us understand our kids more.
