Learning The Love Languages Of Children & Teens

Todd Bowman with New Nostalgia.
These posts written by Todd (Amy’s husband) are designed to model a system of purposeful living.  At least once a month, he spends time setting meaningful goals around one of seventeen core priorities.


If you missed it, consider reading the foundation post – Purposeful Living #1.



Correct Priority #5 – Children (Emotional Health)  
Goal – June 2013
Formally identify the primary Love Language for each of my three girls.   


I have assumed for a long time that I know the primary love language for each of my three girls, but realized recently that I am not certain about any of them.
Whether through a simple test or through conversation (or some other method), I am going to take time to more formally assess and identify the love languages of my girls.  
Knowing the primary way my daughters feel loved is super important to me as I set goals every month to try to speak that language for them on a consistent basis.  If I am making mistakes or missing the boat in this area with any of them, I want to figure this out.   
Seeing as this is such a priority to me, I am thinking it makes sense to purchase and read the following two books which can best provide an overview of this topic.  I don’t want to assume just because I have read the adult book that I fully understand how the Love Languages apply to children and teens.
The five love languages of children book
The five love languages of teenagers book
If you can’t tell, I am a huge fan of the book The Five Love Language: The Secret to Love That Lasts by Gary Chapman.  There are a million marriage books out there, but this one may be my favorite.
