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.

Principles Every Parent Should Understand

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.

To truly understand your child`s love language

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.

One of many tools....

What made the experience of listening to The Five Love Languages of Children the most enjoyable?

This is a very interesting concept to have in your toolbox. More than anything it has prompted me into more mindfulness in my parenting. It is common sense that we don't always stop to think about. The book is well organized and is definitely worth listening to.

Never too late

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

I have always tried to learn how to speak to my children's. I am learning again, and I would recommend this book to all parents to help love their children's in their own ways.

very helpful .

helpful as it explains more than the 5 languages. I especially liked the part about managing anger to avoid passive aggressive behavior, in me and the child.

An encouragement as a parent

I appreciate books being read by their own author. I felt unjudged and encouraged listening to this even though I don't feel I'm the best of parents at times.

I have learnt a lot

This audio version really worked for me as I find it difficult to read book. A big thanks to the authors.
I have realised my daughters love language is words of affirmation so I need to improve on that. I also need to work on physical touch
