The 5 Love Languages Of Children, Book review and Giveaway


Does your child speak a different language? Sometimes they wager for your attention, and other times they ignore you completely. Sometimes they are filled with gratitude and affection, and other times they seem totally indifferent. Attitude. Behavior. Development. Everything depends on the love relationship between you and your child.

When children feel loved, they do their best. But how can you make sure your child feels loved?
Since 1992, Dr. Gary Chapman's best-selling book The 5Love Languages has helped millions of couples develop stronger, more fulfilling relationships by teaching them to speak each others' love language. Each child, too, expresses and receives love through one of five different communication styles. And your love language may be totally different from that of your child. While you are doing all you can to show your child love, he may be hearing it as something completely opposite. Discover your child's primary language and learn what you can do to effectively convey unconditional feelings of respect, affection, and commitment that will resonate in your child's emotions and behavior.

My personal thoughts:

Once again Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell gives us an interesting approach to connecting with our children.
Most adults tend to raise their children the way they were raised, and that can prove good or bad depending on the situation. In 'The 5 Love Languages Of Children' the authors raise some excellent points and explains how to identify these love languages.
Some readers might very well identify ways they have already use but others will surely find it a very helpful tool and it is so simple! It is all about love!
Here is where it gets truly interesting: once you identify each group and observe which ones your children react to, you will have the essential key to building a foundation of unconditional love with them! And every child needs love!

According to Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell, using these 5 love languages will help Mums and Dads better understand children as well as help discipline them much more effectively (something most of us hate to do but is sometime necessary)!
Even single parents will find in Chapter 11 how to use this book to help them deal with sometime frustration like all the millions of others single parents out there. 

'The 5  Love Languages Of Children' will help you to show your children you really love them! This book also includes how to speak the love language in marriage as well as an exceptionally helpful chapter on additional help for parents. With life as busy as it is for most of us, we can use all the help we can get!
An excellent advice: 'You can never built bridges until you get rid of the walls'! So simple and so very true!
Excellent notes are included with each chapter (including what the children says) and an epilogue on what might be ahead with a love language mystery game for the entire family rounds up this amazing book!

Absolutely marvelous and well worth 5stars!
