Thanks to everyone for entering; I highly recommend this book!

The 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman is an incredible resource for parents of all types. The book has four target areas in which to assist families, as outlined:

  • Discovering your child’s love language
  • Understanding the link between successful learning and the love languages
  • Comprehending how the love languages can help you discipline more effectively
  • Building a foundation of unconditional love for your child

Reviewing this book was such a privilege, I’m a practical person and love the summary boxes throughout the entire book.  The little hints within them are simple to breeze through and remind you of the high points.

Personally this book is a current and future tool to hone my parenting skills.  With seven children, I’m anticipating spending more time delving into individual needs.

The great thing is that I have the privilege of giving away one copy to one of you, my readers! Ya’ll know I love to give things away, especially resources as valuable as this one.

So here we go! You can enter to win simply by leaving a comment answering:

  1. Haven’t read his books yet….BUT we listen as often as possible to Dr. Chapman’s radio show on Saturdays (Moody stations)….and have learned LOTS!

    I haven’t read any of the books yet. A friend had recommended the original and I think this one would be great in helping us with our girls.

  3. My husband and I went to a conference that taught about the 5 love languages on the weekend we returned from our honeymoon almost 2 years ago. Though we have not read the book, we learned a lot about each other and how different our love languages are. Now that we have an infant son, this book on kids would be very helpful to us as well. Thanks for this great giveaway!

  4. I haven’t read the books, but have always wanted to. I think it is so important to see what makes a person tick and how you can show love so specific to their love needs.

  5. I’d love to win this book, it sounds great for parents with young kids – I many need this to learn better how to talk and deal with kids “hard times.”

    Thanks for the chance!

  6. I have not read any of the five love language books, but I have heard nothing but great things about them. I would expect to learn how to better communicate with my child, based upon her unique love language.

    🙂

  7. I have read The Five Love Languages, along with my hubby. We both learned so much about the way we each give and receive love, and I think that any couple (or parent, or even friends) could highly benefit from this resource! I would love to read this Love Language for Children book-I have 4year-old twin daughters-each very different-and would love to be able to minister love to them more effectively in their own languages! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  8. I had read th eoriginal book- loved it and WOW did it open my eyes to my hubby and his language.

    How funny that my dear friend would post this on her fb wall today… My husband and I were just talking about the desire to read this book just last night! =) I have read bits and pieces of The 5 Love Languages and have heard from many that The 5 Love Languages of Children is an awesome resource to help to get to know your children better and learn to better instruct/guide/discipline based on their individual love languages. Looking forward to reading this book and seeing how God can transform through it!

  10. Sarah Davis says:

    I have not read any of these books. However, I would love to as my girls are both opposites from one another and I would like to be better at recognizing their individual needs and how I can better parent them in individual situations.

  11. Jess Crawford says:

    I have never actually read any of the books but I am incredibly interested! I am “obsessed” with my children’s emotional state and making sure they feel loved and are receiving everything they need emotionally. “Comprehending how the love languages can help to discipline more effectively”….this makes me excited alone to read it. Some days I feel ALL I do is discipline (tell me I’m not alone!) and rely on God’s word to get me through those times but would also love to learn more about what the boy’s additional needs are while being disciplined too! Lining that up with what I am currently doing would be awesome! Thanks Rachel! =)

  12. My husband and I both read the 5 Love Languages book to better love on each other in the past. Very beneficial and eye-opening as to how others receive love. I would love to better find out what makes our daughter tick!

  13. Kristie Seevers says:

    I have read the The Five Love Languages. It is one of my favorite books. It helped me to understand more about myself and my own needs so that I can express those needs to my partner. I think this book would be just as wonderful in helping me with my 16 and 8 year old kids.

  14. Christine Aichele says:

    Unfortunately, I have not read any of the books. However, I am very interested in this book because I teach Kindergarten Sunday School. I believe it will help me minister better to the children.

  15. I read the original book before my husband and I got married. I think I even took the test to learn your own love language before meeting him. I would love this resource to learn about showing love to my children.

  16. Sarah Moore says:

    I have read the original 5 Love Languages Book. I learned that my husband and I definitely don’t speak the same love language, but we can learn to still meet each other’s needs if we learn our love languages.

  17. I skimmed the adult version, so I can’t say I’ve “read” it.

    My husband responds to touch, just about any kind. I’m not sure what my love language is.

    Hm, the book is right behind me on his bookshelf, I should “skim” it some more…

  18. I started to read the first one but was a newlywed at the time and life was easy. I’ve been wanting to dig it out again. This children version sounds like just what I need!

  19. I read the original Five Love Languages book, and it helped me discover that my love language is gifts, and my husband’s is acts of service. That’s why we both felt unappreciated in our first year of marriage! Since then, things have gotten so much better between us. I would really love to learn what my daughters’ love languages are, they are so different from each other, and from me.

  20. Sha'rrell Haws says:

    I haven’t actually READ any of the books, I HAVE taken the “test” and I understand the concept. I think it could be invaluable w/kids, grandkids, foster kids (which we are HOPING to have soon… still in the process….sllllloooooowwwwww). Especially w/fosters, I think, b/c they may have a lot more trouble expressing themselves and the “hints” the love languages give could really be helpful…. if I had the book and knew what they were…. ;-))

  21. I think I have scanned the book before, but not read it all the way through. It is important to show children they are loved and there are various ways to do that. Find what connects best with your children. I think mine is Words of Affirmation.

  22. I have read the five love languages and used the website tools as well. I found out a lot about myself and what sort of things make me feel loved. I think it would be amazing to read about my daughters love language, I am sure it would help me parent and show her love in a way that is more suited to her. Lately I have had trouble finding what works discipline wise, I think that book would help with that.
