5 Love Languages of Children, The Review

Book Review: 

Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell team up to take The 5 Love Languages to children. This book offers a description of each love language, characteristics of children that show a preference for that love language, how parents can demonstrate each particular love language, tips for how to assess what your child’s love language is, and a questionnaire to assist parents in assessing their child’s love language.

This is another excellent book by Gary Chapman & Ross Campbell. I enjoyed reading it because it frames interactions between parent and child in a different light. Most parents want to show their children love, but if you are not expressing it in their love language, some of the message might be lost. This book helped me to reassess how I interact with each of my children to make sure love communication is meeting their needs. I have read many books by Gary Chapman and I am a fan of how clear and easy to use his tips are. This book is not as specific as Chapman’s book, The 4 Seasons of Marriage: Secrets to a Lasting Marriage, but it is still a great book.

I like the suggestions for discovering your child’s love language by asking questions and giving choices to determine their preferences. I also think it is helpful for parents to become aware of their own love language, especially when it is different from their child’s love language. The ideas at the end of each chapter give parents a good starting point to start speaking their child’s love language, especially if it is not their primary love language.

I think it is another excellent book by these authors. If you are a parent, grandparent, or anyone who interacts with children, this book would be helpful in helping you identify their love language and meeting their needs.

I received a copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
