Our guest today, Dr. Gary Chapman, helps us learn our child’s love language. I strongly recommend to parents that they apply the wisdom mentioned in this podcast when it comes to loving their children.
Dr. Gary Chapman needs no introduction. Many parents, no doubt, are aware of the author and speaker’s best seller The 5 Love Languages.
How to Understand Your Child’s Love Language
To be honest, I don’t know that I ever thought about my child’s love language until my daughter approached me with Dr. Gary Chapman’s book, The 5 Love Languages, several years ago.
I think I may have instinctively lucked into it, I’m not sure. However; now, after being familiar with the concept, it’s certainly true that all my kids definitely have different love languages.
Dr. Gary Chapman helps us understand our child’s love language by:
- Discussing what a love language is
- The functionality of each love language
- Why your marriage will help you raise healthy teens
- How to discuss this topic with your family
