I’m sure you’ve heard of the book “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman. Such an incredible book that has been around since 1995. But did you know there is a version to discover your child’s love language?
If you are currently struggling right now to connect with your child or step child, this might be helpful.
I know I tend to get into a rut and end up being frustrated, so anything new is worth a try!
Knowing your child’s love language can help you to be more effective in meeting their emotional needs, discipline more effectively, and help them to learn better.
Every parent and Step parent can benefit from this!!!
Maybe your child/step child is in need of one of the following:
*Physical Touch: needs more cuddles
*Words of Affirmation: would love to have a handwritten note saying how great of a job they did during their soccer game
*Quality Time: would love to play a game of cards together
*Gifts: might enjoy a special gift of their favorite candy bar or treat
*Acts of Service: would love for you to make their favorite meal, just because
This is a great activity for a family night!
