The Five Love Languages of Children
July 5, 2011 at 7:18 PM

This is a book recommended by a friend. I haven't even finished it and I am recommending it! The theory is that every human understands love in 5 different form, or languages: Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch. The book explains the 5 "languages," how to determine your child's language, as well as how it can be a part of discipline, how your child learns, and even how they deal with anger. The book ends with an assessment in the form of a game to help you determine your child's primary language.

Also, there is a sister book called The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate.

    OMG, this book should be listed in our book club! thanks for adding it! surprised we didn't do it sooner!

    I haven't read it but plan to, but...

    I have used the website and have had friends that read it, I'll give a link to the L-amp thread where we posted our kids and our own love languages.

    here's the link (I also bumped it in the lounge)

    I want to read this one too!  I have it on my list for sure!

    I was at a bookstore like 3 weeks ago and it was there.. for $15!! I should have grabbed it... but Money is SUPER tight right now so I talked myself out of buying it.

    I went on amazon names got it for under 10 dollars... Not sure exactly how much... It's been a while, but it's a good place to shop IMO
