"Thank you, Mr. Chapman, for this book! I've read the children and adults one, but this teen one comes along at a perfect time, as our own children are reaching that stage. It's a difficult time to navigate, and this book has given me lots of suggestions for how to get through the tricky times. With any luck, I'll be able to trick....um, convince....my husband into reading it, too!"

"When dealing with teenagers it's really sort of like finding your way through a maze. Every child is different and has different emotional and physical needs. After reading this book, I was really able to start to sense what my children need. By employing the use of the love language it really makes your child know that you understand and love them. It eases situations that could escalate especially when a child is upset. The way I parent with teenagers is really different from when they were little and I think by using these love languages in your arsenal of parenting is truly helpful."

"Urgh. Teenagers sure are difficult. Although I am not a mom of teens yet, I'm already anticipating the beatific angels transforming into acne-pocked, oily monsters full of angst and contempt for "the man..".meaning me.
I was absolutely thrilled when I found that Gary Chapman had created a sequel of sorts to the 5 Love Languages. The principle of love languages was the same; there are 5 languages that people respond to and feel loved by: Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Gifts, Physical Touch, and Quality Time.
However, this book helps parents to navigate the waters of troubled teenagers and how to make them feel loved...without maybe feeling suffocated by mom and dad's love."

"The 5 Love Languages of Teenagers By Gary Chapman.
Gary Chapman first wrote the book "Five Love Languages." Since then the books have been customised for different markets including Men, Children, Teenagers, Singles and Military.
This version follows a similar format that outlines the five Love Languages: Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Gifts, and Acts of Service. This is followed by chapters on how to discover your teenager's primary love language, and how the Love languages affect their love, responsibility development, independence, and dealing with failure.
There is a section of Speaking your teenager's love language and applying them in a single parent family, and blended families.
The book is an excellent practical resource for parents to understand their teenager, how they feel, and how to express love to a teenager in a way that has meaning to them. This unconditional love boosts a teenager's emotional needs and therefore their self-esteem.
There are lots of practical suggestions and ideas for each of the love languages.
A book that should be read regularly by every parent."

This book was recommended to me after my 13 year old daughter and I had reached our limits with each other and were no longer speaking. I thought we'd passed the point of no return but I have to say THIS BOOK WORKS! The gestures suggested in the book seemed so small that they couldn't possibly work but once you know the right language to speak with your teen, they speak back, without grunting and shouting and what do you know, , ,your love tanks fill up!!! Even if you don't have a difficult teen, read it anyway as this will give you a valuable insight into other people too. Anyway, I've been working according to this book and this week was the first week my daughter and I had NO conflicts at all. She even turned down going out with friends to spend time with me! Definately a book I'll be hanging on to, especially as I have another daughter about to reach her teens too!

I wish I could give this two ratings, one for the helpfulness of the basic ideas, and another for the writing of the book. The first would be a five, the second a one or a two.Read more
Do not read if you are offended by sexism, or bigotry towards single parent families, or the concept that your teenager will be fine if you embrace god together.
Excellent book. I would recommend it to ALL parents,carers, those looking after teenagers. Full of valuable advice.
Both of my sons are teens and I have found the guidance in this book is invaluable. I consider myself to be an ok parent but am still willing to learn and progress with my sons.Read more
