Do Your Children Feel Loved? I

Busy Mom’s Survival Guide Podcast Episode 062.
I love my children.  And I’m sure that you love yours.  But do you show your kids love in a way that they can understand?  Do they actually feel like you love them?

During this podcast episode I discuss the concept of love languages from the book The 5 Love Languages* by Gary Chapman.

The book really made an impact on me when I read it years ago and I highly recommend it.  I learned that it doesn’t matter how much I love my children if I don’t express it in a way that is meaningful to them.

During the first part of this podcast series, I discuss the first two love languages – Words of Affirmation and Quality Time.  You’ll find out which Jonas children are dominant in these love languages and how I make sure that I am showing them love in a way that matters to them.

Please join me next week as I finish the discussion on love languages by discussing the remaining languages – Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.   I’ll also talk about how you can learn which love language is dominant for the members of your family.

    I’m not sure if you say it on the podcast (and I’m not able to listen to it now) but how old were your children when you identified their love language? My husband and I read the Love Languages book about 4 years ago and it single handedly was the best thing we have done for each other. I love being able to show him on a level that reaches him how deeply I care.
    Now when it comes to our boys (who are 2 & 4) I think I know and have debated reading the children’s version of the book but haven’t known anyone who has and was looking for a little feedback on if my boys were maybe a little to small for them to really tell me. They are very different and we pay attention to what they respond to most but sometimes children just respond how you want them too so it’s tough to say.
    So… (sorry long question) how old were your kids?
    Thanks for another great post!

      You won’t know definitively at this age, probably not til more like 5 or 6. But the book is a good read to get you thinking in the right direction with them. When they’re so little, it really is important to show them all the love languages (important at any age) so that they can learn how to show the love languages when they grow up.
      I don’t remember their ages. It was years ago, though. PJ
