Learn Your Child’s Love Language To Love Them Better

Sometimes it’s hard to know what our kid’s need from us as parents. They need someone to teach them how to read, tie their shoes and make good choices. They also need someone to love them and let them know they are loved. But not everyone shows love the same. And not everyone accepts love the same. Enter – your child’s love language.

Learn Your Child's Love Language To Love Them Better

If you have heard of love languages before, it’s probably in regards to men and women’s romantic relationships. BUT there is another book about kid’s love languages. I have learned SO much about my kids and myself from this book.

It’s called [easyazon_link identifier=”0802412858″ locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]The 5 Love Languages of Children: The Secret To Loving Children Effectively[/easyazon_link] by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell. It’s actually part of a series of “Love Languages” books – because I guess he hit on a winning idea and wanted to keep it going.

Your Child’s Love Language

But I really love this book about loving your children because kids don’t come with manuals. I’ve said it before and I will say it again – every kid is different. There is no one-size-fits-all parenting guide that will tell you everything you need to know. And this book teaches you how to love your child so that they know they are loved.

Not how YOU want to love your child. How they need you to love them. 

Heavy stuff. It’s the kind of stuff that keeps me awake at night.

What are the 5 love languages?

1. Physical Touch
2. Words of Affirmation
3. Quality Time
4. Gifts
5. Acts of Service

How can you tell?

[easyazon_link identifier=”0802412858″ locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]The book[/easyazon_link] goes into some ways to determine what your child’s love language is. But it is also quick to point out that your child may have a “primary” love language, while still benefiting from all five. I can easily tell that one of my daughters primary love language is physical touch. But I’m not so sure with my youngest. I think that as they get older, it might be easier to tell.

Why is it important to learn your child’s primary love language?

As parent’s, we want our kid’s to know we love them. Sometimes that means more than just saying “I love you.” We also need to understand how our actions also speak our love to our children.
