In replying to another post, I remember when I was raising my three daughters, now grown, wanting them to both know and FEEL our love for them. I happened upon a book by an author, Dr. Ross Campbell, MD, that addressed the needs of children in this regard.
Recently, he joined forces with Dr. Gary Chapman, Ph.D to write a book together called, "The Five Love Languages of Children", on how to make sure your child FEELS your love for them. Each child gives and receives love into their emotional tank differently, and as you come to recognize their individual Love Language needs, they will know and FEEL loved.
Is anyone else familiar with this?
I benefited greatly from this knowledge, used it in marriage as well as with family and children, and found it REALLY helps!! My husband and I have grown closer as we each realize how to help the other feel loved in a way that each needs. Use it with my children still today, as grown women, and with my son-in-law and granddaughter, as well. I really recommend this to others.
Has anyone found this to be true and what other methods have you found to work well?
