Publisher's Summary

Two Christian parenting educators describe five ways we can connect with our children: physical touch, quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, and acts of service. These initiatives, when geared to the preferences of each child, make them feel loved and, thus, more receptive to guidance and redirection when needed.

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.

    "Sincere"

    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".

    "Great book"

    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.

    "Good shift of original idea...applicable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Five Love Languages of Children?

    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.


    What about Chris Fabry’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.

    "WaWaWonderful!"
    Where does The Five Love Languages of Children rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10 for sure.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    n/a


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This is very helpful in providing tools for parents. It helped me to better understand other relationships in my life. Very eye opening and helpful.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Punishing a child using his/her love lanuguage can wound them and is detrimental to their personal growth.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read many parenting books over the past year. This is by far one of the best!

    "Simple ways to express love"
    Is there anything you would change about 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!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Not applicable really. It isn't a story really.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Chris Fabry?

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. I can't see this working as a film.


    Any additional comments?

    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'.

    "A Real Eye Opener!!"
    Any additional comments?

    Even if I chose not to implement any of Dr. Chapman's guidelines or suggestions (which is ludicrous! :) I really did learn alot), I think the book is well worth the time/effort/money even if just be reminded about the different ways to love our children-- and the benefit our love can have on their self esteem. I find myself everyday consciously trying to use a couple different "Love Languages" on my 4 and 2 yr old daughters to make sure they know that they are loved. One thing that I didn't care for is Dr. Chapman's speaking voice. It is fine and tolerable-- but started to wear on my nerves after a bit to the point that I would have to stop listening because I found myself drifting on rants about his annoying inflections and the odd rises and falls in his sentences. But, if you are looking for information over entertainment and can handle his voice then this is the book for you. And who knows, I might be completely off base on the voice-- but seriously-- the sing-songy flow drove me CRAZY!! Regardless, I think its worth any parent attempting to listen :)
