The 5 Love Languages
In his classic book The 5 Love Languages, psychologist and speaker Gary Chapman argues that dysfunction in marriages is largely rooted in the fact that we all speak different love languages, and people fail to learn and speak their partner’s. This leads to couples running on empty emotional tanks. Chapman explains the five love languages (words of affirmation, quality time, receiving gifts, acts of service, and physical touch), and then shows how the discovery of your spouse’s love language can lead to a more loving, lasting marriage.
The 5 Love Languages Of Children: The Secret To Loving Children Effectively
According to Gary Chapman, the foundation of a child’s healthy development is love. So it is vital to communicate love to a child, but it’s not just a matter of saying the words “I love you.” This book is about learning how to say, “I love you” in a way your child understands, whether that’s through physical touch, receiving gifts, acts of service, quality time, or words of affirmation. Relationships within the family become less tense, stressful, and more enjoyable for everyone when parents learn to speak their child’s language.
