Product Description

Review

This outstanding book addresses how each child (adults as well) expresses and receives love best through one of five primary "languages" - quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, or physical touch. Although children need to be spoken to in each of these love languages, there's one love language that meets their deepest emotional needs and should be used often with them (and authors caution how you use that language for discipline). The information in this book complements books that address communicating with children based on their temperament (such as "Raising your Spirited Child" and "Kids, Parents, and Power Struggles" by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka). I also appreciate that the author included an informative chapter on "love languages in marriage", instead of just a one-liner encouraging readers to buy his book dedicated to that subject. Bottom line - Even if you've read tons of parenting books, you will truly learn something new from this one - something to enhance your relationship with your child and adults in your life. You'll probably even learn something about yourself. --By Nature Mom w/ 2 children 25 July 2001

This book has revolutionised the way I communicate with, and discipline my children. Within the space of three days my three year old has gone from being difficult for me to deal with to being a pleasant child who responds to discipline in a positive manner. Our home has become more of a haven than a battlefield! Learning to communicate with my children in their primary love language has been the BEST thing that has happened to my parenting, and to their self esteem. I would highly recommend this book to any parent of young children. I will certainly be re-reading it through the years of their lives. --By A Customer 15 March 2000

Listening to the audio version of this excellent book is a great use of your time while driving to work. The five love languages concepts and how to apply them in raising and loving your children and even improving your marriage are eye-opening and thought-provoking. I believe I will listen to this tape again and again over the years as I raise my young daughter. I highly recommend the audio version for all young, busy families! --By A Customer 5 August 1999 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This short book is the best parenting book I have read - and indeed helps so much in marriage and other relationships too. The theory is that we all have one of five ways of giving and receiving love, and if you understand yours and other peoples, it helps to understnad their reactions, motivations etc. It is excellent. Knowing my 'love language' and my husband's has helped me so much. It is a really quick read and a very simple idea, but I found it really helpful.

This is really rewarding and practical book that I would recommend to any parent. I cam to it fresh from reading "Detoxing Childhood", a book that I found negative and patronising and that left me feeling inadequate and guilty. This book was such a relief. Its implicit starting point seems to be that parents know their own children best, that they have their best interests at heart, are fundamentally good and competent people, and will benefit from some practical suggestions. The writers seem to assume that families come in all shapes and sizes and work patterns etc and don't appear to have any interest in trying to make anyone feel bad, just in making positive suggestions. The basic premise is that children express and receive affection, primarily, on one of five ways. These are described in the initial chapters, with subsequent chapters on discipline, learning, anger, single parent families, and a final chapter on marriage. I have to admit that I was initially rather sceptical about the premise, but the astonishing fact is that it really seems to work. I have been able to identify the fact that my two older sons (it only works for the over 5s) communicate and receive affection best in different ways, and this really has made a difference to my interactions with them.

One thing you should be aware of if you are considering this book is that the writers are obviously committed Christians. However if (like me) you're not one yourself, I really would not be put off by this. It is not at all intrusive, and what comes across most strongly is the sense that both are very decent people.

I have found most parenting books to be a waste of time and money, either platitudinous (Steve Biddulph) or negative (Sue Palmer). But this one I would recommend.

this book is very good, its very similar in ways to the marriage one, but very useful in helping to understand and developing your kids.
only suitable though when your kids are old enough to answer the questions, although my 3 year couldn't i was able to work out his love lanugage.

INTRO:
Gary Chapman once again delivers a best-seller ("over 600,000 sold") by applying the 5 Love Languages to children.

AUTHORS:
Ross Campbell is the source of visdom behind this book. He "is the author of 'How to Really Love Your Child' which sold over one million copies. He is an associate professor of pediatrics and psychiatry."
Gary Chapman "is ... the director of Marriage and Family Life Consultants, Inc. Gary travels the world presenting seminars and his radio program airs on more than 100 stations."

CONTENT:
Amazon.com allows you to have a Look Inside (where one will find the Table of Contents). While I have read the Five Love Languages (men's edition) before, and was familiar with the topics, the books first 6 chapters left like a review.

What I liked about the format of the book is that:
1) it is a pretty short book and very easy to read (only 212 pages)
2) each love language chapter ends with a list (Action Plan)of ideas and activities for parents to do and show their child the specific love
3) individual chapters on anger (especially passive-aggressive), discipline, and learning.
4) book ends with a list of suggested further reading and an Assessment Game.

The followings are excerpts from the book that will give you some flavor about its content:

LOVE IS THE FOUNDATION - Chapter 1
- "perhaps the way that has the greatest potential for has is to not properly communicate love to our children ... Love is the foundation to a secure child who grows into a giving, loving adult." (pg.7)
- "training our children and teenagers to manage anger is the most difficult task of parenting. ... discipline (chapter 8) .. two key words .. pleasant and firm." (pg.

A book totally focused on making practical changes to maximise positive outcomes in relationships. All the greatest communication skills in the world won't build excellent relationships unless you speak the other person's love language. Also teaches why disciplining in a love language can not only hurt, but DEEPLY DAMAGE your relationship with your child. This was an 'ah ha' moment for me after 15 years of parenting, as to why some of my children need one style of discipline, and others need different. Smacking/ time out/ strong verbal correction if used with the wrong love language totally backfires, because they leave a deep wound beyond which the child cannot hear your message. I've been able to apply this to my marriage too. (No spanking parents or children around here, but using for reference as if your child is kinesthetic and thrives on healthy touch, then it's *never* going to work, and that's why!).

Recommend to all parents, couples, and teachers!
