Welcome to the Book Brigade!
I was young and now I am old,
yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
or their children begging bread.
They are always generous and lend freely;
their children will be a blessing.” Psalm 37:25-26
We all want to be good parents, but sometimes our best efforts don’t seem to be enough. We love our kids, but sometimes it feels like they just don’t realize it. Where are we going wrong? The 5 Love Languages of Children helps us realize that even though we love our kids, we may not be showing them love in a way that they recognize as love.
The 5 Love Languages for people of all ages are:
- Physical Touch
- Words of Affirmation
- Quality Time
- Acts of Service
Everyone needs all five of these love languages, but we also have one or two love languages that tend to really stand out and make us feel even more special. As early as the age of five, dominant love languages start to emerge. Once you have determined your child’s love language, you can make sure that you show them love in this way, so that they feel loved. If children feel loved, they will be more receptive to your instruction and discipline.
