One of the best resources that I have read while raising my children was a book called ‘The five love languages of children’.  I read that book completely amazed that something so simple had escaped me. This book will help you understand your child and the best way to love them.

There are many different ways our child can feel and respond to love.  It is important that you learn what those are. Does your child like to be hugged and kissed more, or do they like gifts? Do they appreciate being told they are good at something? Having movie night or playing a game might be the best way to show your child love.  Or they just might love it when you do little things for them. That is what will help them to feel loved.

Here is a list of the 5 love language, but please read the book because there is so much helpful information in there that will help you to discover what your child needs.  Helping you get to know your children and learn what their favourite love language is.

  • receiving gifts.
  • quality time.
  • words of affirmation.
  • acts of service (devotion)
  • physical touch.

I found this resource to be helpful in all of my relationships in my life. With my husband, with my children, with my siblings, my parents, and even with my co-workers.  The truth is we all want to be ‘loved’ and we all see ‘love’ as something different.

Here are some other resources that might be helpful for you as a parent all dealing with love in one way or the other.
