While doing some quick traveling this spring, I read The 5 Love Languages, The Secret to Love That Lasts written by Gary Chapman, PhD. This book will reveal to adults the 5 love languages in relationships. Chapman’s book helps couples to recognize their own love language and that language of their spouse and how to speak in each other’s love language.
So, what does this mean for your preschooler? Parents who recognize these languages and speak them in front of their children are teaching their children how to speak the languages of love to others. For example, the languages are: quality time, physical touch, words of affirmation, acts of service, and receiving gifts. In the area of physical touch, if a preschooler sees parents giving and receiving appropriate personal touch, such as hugs, or a light kiss upon arrival or departure, or holding hands, then preschoolers will learn to mimic these acts of personal touch in their own lives.
Chapman paired with Dr. Ross Campbell and wrote The 5 Love Languages of Children. A basic need for a preschooler is to feel loved. The book teaches parents proper ways of showing love to their children to strengthen their bonds with their children. By modeling proper love for your child, your child will learn to love others properly and to have better relationships.
