The 5 Love Languages of Children Review and Giveaway

Two weeks ago I reviewed {and hosted a giveaway for} an adorable children's book based on Dr. Gary Chapman's The Five Love Languages called A Perfect Pet for Peyton.  

Today I am happy to tell you about the companion to that children's book {for adults}, The 5 Love Languages of Children.

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.

The Love Languages that you will learn about in detail are Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Gifts, Acts of Service, and Quality Time.  And even if you have read Gary's first book, The 5 Love Languages, it was wonderful to learn how to better understand and bond with our children using the same simple techniques.

I'm a homeschool mom and pretty much around Funny Bunny 24/7.  I feel like I have her figured out but I know there are always ways that we as parents can improve our relationships with our children.

After reading the book, I went back and forth on FB's Love Language.  Nothing was really standing out but I was leaning towards Quality TimeShe took the test in the back of the book and did lean towards Quality Time, with Physical Touch and Words of Affirmation not far behind.  That's not too much of a surprise for a girl who needs hugs every 5 minutes.  ;)

Find Out More: You can find out more about The 5 Love Languages of Children online at The Five Love LanguagesThe book is available online at a number of retailers, which you can find at the previous link.

My husband and I when to a one-day marriage retreat last year and learned about the love languages. I feel like it really added to our marriage and would love to see how to adapt it with children since we now have a baby.
