The authors are inspiring writers whose examples and quotes from children and parents are instructive. Gary Chapman's uplifting reading makes the effort that some of these approaches will require seem natural and right. This is a program that helps listeners make their children central in their lives and that provides them with specific tools to stay connected.

If you've read The Five Love Languages then most of the principles here will not surprise you. However, the author(s) but a different spin on the principles of love when it comes to kids. The main point of this book is that kids deserve, and should receive unconditional love. Using the love languages liberally, including discovering and utilizing each child's primary love language, is a key way to show unconditional love to your children. This is the main thesis of the book.
While the material here was not anything I found groundbreaking, the use of specific examples was helpful. I could relate to the children and parents which were discussed. You will likely see your children in the examples presented.
I am one who believe I can't learn enough about showing my children love, and this book is a solid addition to that subject. It's paced well and read well. I recommend it for all parents.
Don't know of any.
Yes, I have listened to other books by Gary Chapman and they have all been good.
Yes, when as I listened I saw my own family.
Audible Obsessed wishes she had more time for so many audiobooks.
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.
A must read for any parent at any stage. Many of the concepts are done naturally but with the book there is a realization of why it works. It's like the karate kid understanding "wax on, wax off".
Loved the book and wish more parents would read it. I have already seen a difference in my relationships with both my husband and daughter through reading and applying this book.
This book is Christian based. There are bible references. The message in this book is important. To reach more people I would edit out the preaching. The message will still work!
Not applicable really. It isn't a story really.
No. I can't see this working as a film.
I like the simplicity of 5 ways to express love to my child. Since he has been young I have tried to keep a balanced approach to expressing my love for him. I have printed up a poster to remind me of the five 'love languages'.
I have recommended it to my friends because we are therapist and we have kids. There are many instances when therapist kids get left out because we are saving others. We have to remember our own kids need us too.
I like how I can identify my son in the illustrations and just trying things small as they may seem made huge differences in our relationship.
It was good. I was just used to hearing the audiobook from the 5 Love Languages it was hard to wrap the idea that the voice changed. I got hung up on "that's not how he sounds." But Chris did a good job just not what I expected when I started.
I did but I drive when I listen so it not always possible. It is better when i don't have to break it up.
I just graduated Nursing school and now have time to read more. Any recommendations would be great.
This is an excellent book with great advice. I also read The Five Love Languages of Marriage and its also another excellent book.
