    The concept of the five love languages is very inspiring, and it was fun to figure out which is the best way to express my love to each of my kids Of course it s not that simple, not that black and white they just like everyone else are multilingual The five love languages may seem oversimplified, and some examples fabricated, but the book has its merits It s about love after all.

    This book is brilliant Beyond the fact that this is a book about how to love your child in the way that he or she best identifies and recognizes as lovebecause that alone is a smart and beautiful undertaking, this book begins by introducing the concept of learning to speak your child s love language and then includes a gentle list of things to remember about children.In this book, Chapman and Campbell explain each of the five ways a child expresses and receives love They explain how to identify your child s primary love language and provide numerous examples of how to speak it through various actions targeting specific age groups Guidance is also given for using this method when there is a need to discipline and when teaching life rules to young children A perfect gift for a mother of young children, I wish I had read this earlier This will be my go to gift this year Though I was already aware of the love languages for marriage, I hadn t considered this for children Upon reading this, it was painfully obvious which languages my two speak both different and what I can do differently I will follow up and note later if some adjustments I plan to make effect change Also, the copy I read was reprinted in 2016 and has a modern cover 5 stars.

    Immediately, I realized that I wasn t meeting each of my children s individual love need I thought my son s main love language was physical touch but it s also words of affirmation This is so obvious in that he is always touching, always wrestling, and always in your personal space and now that I realize it he s also always asking if everything is ok, did he do this ok, am I all right and he is so happy after receiving positive words of affirmation from myself and my husband After reading Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell s tips, I began to incorporate touch into every moment that I was near my son and a lot words of affirmation Whenever he is near, my hand can be found on his head, his back, or engaging in learning manners such as shaking hands I have learned to use touch in all of his learning activities and his acting out has gone down considerably as well as his verbal skills have soared.My daughter was a little harder to discover but I quickly discovered that her love languages are acts of service and time She wants to be with you yet she wants to do something with you Playing games with her, baking with her, doing crafts with her, and even cleaning or doing laundry together are all reaching her needs She also loves to work on Punky Monkey Misisons projects together like crocheting, passing out Blessed to Bless bags to the needy and taking food to the homeless.As a mom, I found that The 5 Love Languages of Children was one of the best books I could have read I wish I would have had this as a new mom Gary Champan and Ross Campbell use biblical principles, personal illustrations, and personal application to really open up your eyes to your child s needs I highly recommend this book to any parent new or old It might just be the charge your family needs to go from average to exemplary If every child had their love languages met just think of what a better place we would live in.

    I think this book is fascinating I ve noticed that my children, my spouse and I all have a love language that relates to them The love language is your preferred way of giving receiving love What I loved most about this book is the knowledge that when you discipline a child in their love language it cuts really deep For example, my daughter is a words of affirmation child, and when I correct her actions, she shuts down even when I do it in the nicest way we can t touch that sweetie My son is a physical touch child, and if I punish him by not letting him sit on my lap, it really hurts his feelings But if I correct him with words, he doesn t care It talks a lot about how parents can do everything they want to show their children love, but if they are not showing the child love in the way they prefer it, the child may feel unloved, even to the most attentive parent

    I ve read the original 5 Love Languages and so this one was sort of a waste of my time I did find some valuable tips and interesting insights, but the 5 languages are the same for kids as adults, so it was the same book all over again With an adult, you can say, Here honey, take this quiz to let me know what your primary love language is With kids, you can t do that as easily This book politely says to the reader, Hey, dummy Try quality time and see how your kid responds Then try words of affirmation and observe Then try Now I told you the secret and you don t have to read this book Probably the most helpful part was the chapter on discipline and the love languages The fact that if you use their love language against them, it can be traumatizing When their language is physical touch and you spank them, it s devastating If their language is quality time and you send them to their room, they re crushed To another kid, being sent to their room is play time It was a good reminder to be sensitive to love languages when your kid misbehaves Most times when your children misbehave, it s because they re asking for love anyway.

    I am a blue, type A, ESTJ, who likes to be shown love through quality time, and likes long walks on the beach and.WAIT, no I m not I m Karen, a girl with lots of personality quirks, one of which is that I dislike pop psychology books that tell me I and everyone else fits into one of their created, ficticious descriptions I have to admit, I didn t even finish this book I did read almost all of it though Probably most of us are familiar with the five love languages, they have enjoyed being very discussed pop psychology for the past 10 years This book applies those same love languages to children My issue is not with this book specifically, but with the idea in general All this labeling, catagorizing, pigeon holing, and simplifing people, into tidy little groups I know we all have similarities, but if you really want to love someone, get to know them It takes time and effort, but that would be a better use of your time than reading this book.

    With any book that s designed to help parents be better parents for their kids, it s easy to fall into the trap of defining the success of the book by whether its advice was successful in the reader s family The fact that every child is different is actually the highlight of this book This helps people understand why two kids might react completely differently to the same gifts, the same activities, and the same punishments It has to do with how the people involved show and express love.Most of the explanations from this 5 Love Languages book were instructive to me than the examples from Gary Chapman s main book in this vein, The Five Love Languages How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate.One problem I expected this book to help with my toddler In the book, Chapman and Campbell say that if the child is under the age of 5 that I should just not try to figure out the love language They also say that parents should not discipline or punish the child with methods related to the child s love language E.g., a child in dire need of Quality Time could be emotionally damaged by punishing them with isolation This presents a problem I am not to discipline in my child s love language, but I can t know what my child s language is until he s older Should I simply hope that my discipline tactics are not in the same language as my son s understanding of love Sadly, the authors do not offer a solution to this It seems that the book is geared primarily toward school aged children Still, the advice seems good and I d hate to fault the book with a lower rating simply because of the book s scope I wish the publisher had clarified the appropriate age range of the book in its list description.

    This book, like the other Five Languages of Love book, takes an interesting concept that could have been detailed in a 3 5 page essay but is instead stretched miserably with vague example stories and filler recaps so they could publish an entire book Also, the section that declared that not all women work, so they should talk to their husbands about receiving a monthly budget to buy them gifts was particularly weird.

    I am really torn over what I thought of this book While I like the concepts and I think it had valuable information I had a hard time with it For some reason I couldn t get into the writing style I constantly found my mind wandering and having to go back and re read portions The last several parenting books that I have read have been very readable so I found this hard to reconcile For the most part I felt like the love languages were well explained but in the later chapters when examples are given of putting it into action the authors would say things like speak their love language and then introduce the discipline and then speak their love language to end the conversation The problem I have with this is what if their love language is gifts or acts of service You give them a gift discipline them and then give them another gift Sew a button on their shirt discipline them and then help them clean their room It didn t make sense to me My other big hang up was that the book began by saying that it s hard to determine the love language of children 5 and under My oldest is 5 I didn t feel like this book applied to my family Most of the examples sounded like conversations with teenagers, and yet their is another book titled The Five Love Languages of Teenagers I feel like I would have gotten out of reading the book about couples and then applying some of what I read to the rest of my family.All of this being said I still put the book on CD on hold at the library for my brother because I think it would be beneficial for him with his 9 and 11 year old and possibly the 7 year old too It did bring a few tears to my eyes when I thought back to my childhood and realized why I never really felt loved by my parents because they have never spoken my love language to me I KNOW that they love me and reading this helped me forgive them for some lingering feelings I have After all they have no idea why I would not feel loved, they did their best.This is getting really long I could say but I think you get the general idea Valuable information, didn t love the writing.

    Now that you know my love language, will you use it against me Seriously, compartamentalizing love into five expressions is a bit limited To some it may help to understand why those special people don t meet our expectations, and how to accept their love expression even though it may not mean much to my love language receptor I was one of the unusual ones that couldn t figure out my love language sort of like those personality gift tests dinc that put me in the I don t know range Just think how frustrated my wife must be Maybe there are 5 love languages out there we have not discovered yet
