The Five Love Languages for Children by Gary Chapman & Ross Campbell Book Review and Giveaway!!

The 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell is a book that describes the 5 love languages (words of affirmation, physical touch, acts of service, quality time and gifts) as it pertains to children.  Children come into the world longing for one thing: love.  But they yearn to be loved in different ways and usually have 1-2 ways they most feel loved.  The job of parents is to discover those ways so that their child feels that love that only they can give.  What is very helpful is that at the end of every chapter is a host of ideas to get parents started speaking love to their child.  The authors also cover how love languages work with discipline and anger.  There is a also a very fun Love Language Mystery Game you could play with your child.

Wow!  In reading this book, my eyes were opened to my 3 year old even though it's a little early for me to truly identify his love language.  However, when he constantly asks "Will you play with me?, Can I ride in the truck with you? and Let's build a train track," all points to quality time.  I know he also enjoys words of affirmation and physical touch, but I want to love my son the best by giving him my time!  I'm so thankful to read a book that really helps me learn to love my child and you can too!

To be their best, children need to feel loved. But if you and your child speak different love languages, your affection might get lost in translation, affecting the child’s attitude, behavior, and development. Dr. Gary Chapman’s groundbreaking Five Love Languages series has helped millions of couples communicate love more clearly, and Dr. Ross Campbell M.D. has applied the innovative system to children as well. The 5 Love Languages of Children gives practical suggestions for learning how your children interpret love and creating a sense of security in which they can thrive.

Growing up we were all treated the same. That left a lot of hurt feelings. This is one book every couple should read before having children.
