Audible Obsessed wishes she had more time for so many audiobooks.
This book is about not only loving your teenager, but also about learning how to demonstrate your love in a way they feel they are loved. Sometimes at home with all the rules and responsibilities, it is hard to appreciate your rebel teen, let alone show them they are appreciated.
When I started this book, I had already listened to 5 Love languages of children, and 5 love language for couples, thus I thought it would repeat itself, but it didn't.
This one has a great approach for teens, and if you are one of those renitent parents who is struggling with his/her teen at home, you need to get this book and absorb every ounce of knowledge this book has to offer.
With the advance of modern life, it gets harder and harder to understand your teen, but this book presents simple things and strategies you can do with your teen in order for you to have a more harmonious domestic environment.
This book is especially aimed at helping parents not only to learn to show their kids' love language, but also to understand their teen's. If you are not a parent, but want to understand the teens around you, and how to show your love for them in a way they get it, this is a great source of knowledge. I recommend it.
I bet most people never pay much attention to what kind of love they like to receive from their loved ones, let alone give love, once they don`t know what their loved ones like.
Life is so busy that we don`t usually pay the proper attention to our children, let alone, give them the kind of love they deserve and need to fill their love tank.
This books presents an interesting approach to love languages: words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, gifts and acts of service. I first learned about them when I read the print version of the Five love languages (for couples) and they were of great use for me.
On the Five Love Languages for Children Dr. Campbell and Dr. Chapman specify the use of those 5 languages when dealing with our kids, and God only knows how difficult it can be. They talk about love and how to handle it in a way our children can grow up to be self sufficient and have high self esteem, and not go after wrong forms of love when they grow up, you know, like good girls after crappy guys.
I highly recommend this book if you want to learn how to communicate with your child through these 5 love languages and make them feel loved.
Even if you don`t agree with everything, I`m sure you will find some tips useful, and you will even apply them with your family.
As I was listening to this book, I could only picture Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory sitcom. The resemblances are very didactic, and it is simple to help you understand the world of aspergians. I not only recommend this book, but I am also reading his other book called 'Look me in the eye". This one is a fun and informative read\listen.
