Item description for The Five Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman & Chris Fabry...
Overview Unconditional love is something all children can understand. And The Five Love Languages of Children can help you make your child feel secure, loved and more willing and open to interact with you and your family.
Publishers Description Two Christian parenting educators describe five ways we can connect with our children: physical touch, quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, and acts of service. These initiatives, when geared to the preferences of each child, make them feel loved and, thus, more receptive to guidance and redirection when needed. The authors are inspiring writers whose examples and quotes from children and parents are instructive. Gary Chapman's uplifting reading makes the effort that some of these approaches will require seem natural and right. This is a program that helps listeners make their children central in their lives and that provides them with specific tools to stay connected.

Great Sep 1, 2008
Great book. I highly recommend it. One of the best parenting books out there. A must read for all parents. It is a very short, quick read.
Great advice on how to fill up your child's love tank. Aug 28, 2008
This book is a follow up to the best seller book for couples, The Five Love Languages, that is awesome and I like to give as a wedding gift. Anyway, it talks about filling a child's love tank by understanding how they like love expressed to them, whether by words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, gifts, or acts of service. They say that it really isn't possible to detect your child's primary love language until they are about five--so express love in all these ways while they're young and until you find out which way is most meaningful to them. One way to determine their primary love language is just to ask them how they know you (the parent) love them and see whether they describe presents, time together, things you've done for them, etc.
I'll admit I was skeptical Jun 13, 2008
Ordinarily, the follow-on books are kind of flat. The Elizabeth George "After God's Own Heart" books seemed this way, although the first one, "A Woman After God's Own Heart" was excellent.
I was expecting the same sort of flatness from this book. I found a lot to apply in the original Love Languages book, and I'm still sneaking it into my marriage. It's one thing to tell your Quality-Time husband that you are a TOUCH wife, and a whole different thing to gently convince him to touch touch touch touch touch touch. It has brought me to a whole new level of positive reinforcement.
So I figured this one for kids would be a couple of hundred pages of telling parents that kids need *every* love language. And indeed, there was some of that.
But the book was full of clues for how to recognize your child's love language, how it may change over time, and how to communicate.
The book offered a lot. I thought the chapters on conflict were very worthwhile, and even on how to discipline in the different love languages. My kids are so different that I needed all the pointers I could get. And surprise -- thinking about love languages across generations has helped me communicate better with my parents, too -- off to a good start, anyway.
I read this 6 months ago. My eldest started talking more, to me and to other people, NOTICEABLY more, and it's bringing me some relief from one of my biggest parenting worries -- how remote this child has been. That has been the biggest and most immediate change in our family recently, and I can trace it to this book.
I would recommend you read the first Love Languages book first, and then this one to think specifically about your kids.
Oh, and for moms, definitely read A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George. It's family-enhancing.
wonderful Jun 1, 2008
A terrific book for all families. You will use this info again and again, not only with your children, but your spouse, family, and yourself.
Very good basic info on how to read your child (or anyone really) and provide the love they need. I love this book and refer to it often.
Good book Apr 20, 2008
