Some years ago I read The 5 Love Languages and found the concept of people having dominant love languages fascinating. Now reading how expressing love languages of children is so valuable is presenting an equally fascinating perspective. Essentially, it comes down to people are unique and receive love differently. To one person a symbol of love may be not as meaningful as to another because they are not connecting to a persons dominant love language. To clarify a bit more, the 5 love languages are:

Physical Touch
Quality Time
Words of Affirmation
Acts of Service
and Receiving Gifts

When you connect to a persons love language they feel the love in a more powerful way, but if you miss the mark it can be disappointing (even though the person offering the love may have done their very best).

Now I've digressed because this book is the 5 love languages of children. Children respond differently to different love languages and they generally have a more dominant one too, but benefit from parents connecting to all the love languages in order to fill their emotional love tank. Down the road this can have a powerful effect on their emotional well being.

If you are a parent or a caregiver reading this book is essential! So many great takeaways and examples throughout.

An important read for understanding what love language fills your child's cup. May help solve conflicts that seem never ending. Insightful and practical.

"The Five Love Languages of Children," is a must-read for any parent. There are plenty of practical words of advice for creating and maintaining a love-filled relationship between parent and child. Though many take it for granted that love is easily apparent and communicated between parent and child, the hectic world we live in often allows stress and convenience to turn parenting choices on autopilot in a direction unintended, leaving a child wanting more love and attention than many parents are offering. It is a great reminder to purposefully create time and opportunities for the children in your life so you can fill their little metaphorical toolboxes full of what they need to be autonomous and thrive at life.

An amazing book. Well written, well described. A great book for parents to learn to recognize the way their children show and receive love not to mention to learn how each of us (and our spouses) show and receive love.
