The Five Love Languages of Children Book Review

Our colleague Varita Kirtely, recently utilized our Cavignac Audible Program during her reading of “The 5 Love Languages of Children” by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell. Between working full-time and caring for her daughter, Varita often is unable to find time to sit down with a book, however the Audible program allows her to continue to learn new ways to bring her best self, both at work and at home. This is what Varita had to say about her recent reading of “The 5 Love Languages of Children”.

“Learning your child’s love language is important to understand and discover how they identify their preferred way of showing and receiving love. Everyone has their own love language and can place importance on the following love languages:

  1. Physical Touch
  2. Words of Affirmation
  3. Quality Time
  4. Gifts
  5. Acts of Service

This book did a great job in presenting each love language and provided examples on how children respond to each love language based on which one was important to them. The book provided methods of figuring out which love language best suits your child and utilizing these languages to help discipline them more effectively. In addition, the author provided advice on how not to completely shower your child with these love languages and how to avoid the child from taking advantage of you because you know their love language. For example – a child whose love language is Gifts; avoiding their child from twisting situations, so that you always give them gifts.

This book can be used as a tool for parents to help them communicate better with their children and form a stronger bond. These methods can also be used by grandparents, couples or people who are looking to discover their own love language in relationships.

I highly recommend for new parents. It could be a book to turn to over the first 10 years of your child’s growth.”
