I have listened to Gary Chapman’s radio program for a while now so I am fairly well acquainted with the Five Love Languages theory, but until know, I had not read any of the books about them. I jumped at the chance to review this one.
Being somewhat familiar with the love languages, I had guessed as to which ones fit my sons, who are 5 and 4 years old. Five years is really the youngest age at which you can try to figure out which language is most dominant in a child. After reading the book I believe I was pretty on target with my assessments—that’s the easy part. The book delves into, not only how to figure out which love language is your child’s, but how to best discipline your child according to their love language, how they best learn, etc.
Reading through this book will most likely give you an idea of the love languages of all those who are close to you. This could go a long way toward families finally understanding what make each other tick.
The Five Love Languages of Children is a wonderful resource for any parent, new or old, or anyone who is a parental figure in a child’s life. Just think of the wonderful things that would happen for foster children if foster parents would get ahold of this and use it to understand the children who enter their homes….For more information about this book, click here or the title above!
I received this book free of charge from Moody Publishers through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
