The Five Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell (**review and giveaway!)

on April 21, 2012

 

About the Book:

 

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. Now with over 1,000,000 copies sold!

 

My Opinion:

This is a wonderful book.  I have never read the other love languages books but after reading this one about children’s love languages I just might have to check out the one for adults.  I’m hoping to utilize the ideas in this book to better build the bonds between my children and I – and I also thought it might be fun to introduce the treasure hunt to my 4-H group so that all the adults will be better able to respond to the children there but on a much larger scale.  Most parents do love their children but some of us struggle on how to show that love – I asked my oldest the other day if she knew I loved her and she said “I know you do but you don’t show it”.  What a wake up call.  I’ve learned that for her gifts and quality time are her love languages where my other two seem to be physical touch and quality time.

 

If you’re thinking, like I was, well I can’t afford to buy a gift every day or I don’t have time to do one on one things – think again.  There are so many ideas in this book to jump start you speaking your child’s love language and if your child’s love language is gifts – it doesn’t have to be bought, something made (I like gifts and 5 year old will bring me a bouquet of dandelions, what a gift!) will suffice and if you can’t make it or buy it the book will help with that too.  I’m so glad that I agreed to do this review because I almost passed it up on the thought that I didn’t need this but I did and I think all parents do to.  There is a also a free study guide that you can download here.

    I have four kids and their Love Languages are (I think) Gifts; Quality Time; Words of Affirmation; and Touch.

  2. I have 11 children and 7 grandchildren and much to my dismay, I do not know all of their Love Languages. 😦 This book could change that! =) Thanks for hosting the giveaway.
