Warning: Christian book, riddled with bible references

If you want a Bible book then you will probably love it, but that is not what I wanted. It is a shame as if the references to Christianity were left out, this book could have been generalized to be inclusive of a wider audience.

Wish I could return this and his other book

In chapter 8 he promotes and recommends punishment, including physical punishment. Furthermore, this author tells of spanking NOT being abusive unless it breaks the skin or leaves blisters! WHAT??? Everything I heard up until that point was mediocre, and questionable... but after hearing this particular absurd point that spanking isn't abusive - automatically and entirely discredited this author with massive disappointment. I'd recommended skipping anything written by this preacher, and please check out real child psychologist who are highly experienced and educated in child development and proven relational solutions; Dr. Laura Markham, Dr. Dan Siegel, Dr. Gordon Neufeld, Dr. Peg Dawson and Dr. John Gottman (Gottmann Institute for science backed tangible solutions for both kids and adult relationships) to name a few of the best resources.

This book's title is intriguing but don't waste your credits or time on this book. The concept of love languages are quite simple really; easy to search on the internet and connect the dots as to how to incorporate them and personalize into your relationships, WITHOUT all Mr. Chapman's other crazy, unproven and often contradicting advice. Lastly, make note, because I wish I had noticed this book is categorized as "Religion & Spirituality / Christianity". Do yourself a favour and head over to the "Parenting & Families" genre for the real parenting strategies.

Helped us learn to love our daughter better

This book really helped us understand our daughter on a much deeper level. She doesn't have as many outbursts and angry nights because her love tank is full! very much a physical touch and quality time girl! so different from our other daughter.
great book would recommend.

good content beware, heavy on religion

i think the content of the book is good... my issue is I didn't realize I was buying a book about religion. far too many times the book implies to be a good parent you need to be a follower if the Christian religion, for your children to be happy, they have to believe in Jesus. The book also implies parents must stay together for happy children, that the only reasons for a single parent household is divorce or death, that there are only traditional families. The only religion mentioned by name in the book is the Christian religion. the book would have been more effective for me at least without the heavy religious tone getting in the way, or at least having know. about it at the time of purchase.

So valuable

I am starting much later than I should with learning these lessons.
My daughter is 24 and pregnant with her second child. She has been through a painful past of divorce and her own marriage is rocky.
My stepson is 16 and very willful and uncommunicative
I plan to use the principles in this book to help with our relationships
I want to be the loving parent and grandparent that they need
Thank you so much for making this book available on audio

Excellent for all ages from young parents to grandparents!

Whether you work in the education system, church, or a parent this book is excellent to understanding and meeting the love language of children of all ages.
This book was helpful for me as a parent to look back at what may need addressed in my younger years as a parent to my 3 adult children now age 34 to 45. It is never too late to open up communication and gain understanding and wisdom over misunderstandings and offenses in life.
As a grandparent it helps me with supporting my grown children and being loving and nurturing to my 4 grandchildren. I highly recommend this book!

Everything I was hoping for and then some!

Easy to listen to. Real anecdotes and doable suggestions that WORK. Also chapters for single parents, divorced, and married advice. If you are hesitating-stop and just get this book. I have shared it with the parents of struggling kids/teens...and without fail those who actually implement these principles consistently are ASTOUNDED by the results. I love to give this as a gift to new parents too.

Love!

I've been implementing this book over the last couple months it's taken me to listen it, and I see a significant improvement in my child's behavior. I'm anxious to see how it will improve my marriage.

good book but...

the only issue for me was one it's already a short book and it repeats a lot of what was said in the "5 love languages" book.

Simple easy to follow advice

What a difference it has made for our family in recognizing each child's individual love language, I wish I would have found this along time ago but it's applicable to all ages of children and I'm glad we found it now!

Great insight

o
should have read the give love languages before my son's mothers son split up. it makes all the sense in the world why I couldn't figure out why she didn't love me the way I thought in was supposed to be loved and vice versa. this book is great for any parent or anybody becoming a parent or planning to become one.

Find their way to love

3 children, all of them love and need to be loved differently. Gary's book helped me find my wife's language and really brings it to life as my kids grow and start to develop the way they need to be loved. This book is a must to help parents for the future or to help fix what we've done in the past. Great read/listen!

Useful and Hopeful

While I knew this was coming from a Christian background I was still shaken by the harsh and depressing outlook on single parents. As well as the absence of a two parent one gender family. But put that aside and the content is still useful and really tries to give parents of children at any age hope that they can still improve their relationships

Basic premise is really useful and lots of the examples help paint a broad picture of how to make these ideas your own. While I don't agree with it all I definitely changed my behavior immediately as a parent. The guidance was grounding as a mother of two young children- my relationship with my oldest- a 3yr old, has already improved. Im putting it on my husband's list of books to read.
