50 Ideas for Showing the Five Love Languages to Kids
In the book,The Five Love Languages of Children: The Secret to Loving Children Effectively, the Gary Chapman says:
“The Five Love Languages of Childrenwill introduce to all five love languages of children and help you determine the primary languages in which your child hears your love… Practice all five love languages and you can be sure your child will sense your love.”
Here’s what’s really important to remember.You want to love your children well. If you have a child who’s primary love language is gifts, you need to remember that gifts are not a replacement for your time, words of affirmation, acts of service, or physical touch.
Additionally, if you have a child who’s primary love languageis physical touch, you cannot neglect to give them words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, or gifts. Neglecting any of these love languages will mean something is missing.
Your child needs to see your love for him expressedthrough all five of these love languages. As I raised my own children, I made sure every day that I said good words to my kids, hugged them fiercely, gave them my time and focused attention, listened when they spoke, and did kind things for them.
If you do these things, you’ll have a great relationship with your kids.
