Children Have Love Languages, Too

I've read Dr. Gary Chapman's book, The Five Love Languages, several times in my adult life.  I have taken the quiz more times than I can count to make sure things haven't shifted or that I still convey and receive love in the same manner.  I even recognize when I get frustrated that it is partly due to my love language not being spoken.  When you apply the techniques and observe the information submitted, it really does make sense.  Which is why I can't believe it took me so long to actively pay attention to the fact that my children have their own love languages too. (Especially since there is a book by the same author discussing this at length).

Oh, in case you aren't familiar with Love Languages, there are five ways that people show, communicate, give, and receive love.  They are Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, and Acts of Service.
