“The 5 Love Languages of Children” by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell is a must read for every parents as well as anyone that deals with children on a regular basis. This book provides insight on how to deal children in their own individual way. The 5 love languages as stated in the book are easily understood and can be put into practice very quickly. Learning to use each of these 5 languages with all the people you come in contact with will enhance your ability to develop relationships that are lasting and healthy.
Using these languages with children is of upmost importance as we model for them different ways to express love so that they can then use these techniques in their own relationships as they grow and mature. Knowing the 5 love languages helps each one of us to understand ourselves better as well; and as we understand ourselves, we are better equipped to pour our lives into others for the glory of God.
The authors do a wonderful job of explaining the principles and guiding the reader in implementing them into your everyday life. Clear examples of each of the 5 love languages are given as well as examples of how to deal with children that speak each of the different languages. This is a very encouraging book that will prove to be a great help to parents, teachers, coaches, and anyone else that deals with children. (rev. by C.Delorge)
