Putting "I Love You" Into Action Part 5

May 14, 2019

This is our final blog post in our parenting series of love languages of children.

I hope that these post will help you connect with your child.  

Understanding your child's love language can revolutionize your parenting and really make your child feel loved.  Filling your child’s love tank allows you to teach and discipline them in a healthy manner.  

How can you find out what your child's love language is? 

  • Go HERE and have your child take the 5 minute quiz

If quality time is your child’s primary love language, you can be sure of this: Without plenty of quality time and attention, your child will feel as if you do not really love them and may even act out in an attempt to get attention from their mom or dad.  To them negative attention is better than no attention at all. 

How do you make a child who's love language is quality time feel truly loved?  You start by giving them your undivided attention.  Quality time is a parent’s gift of presence to a child.  It makes your child feel as if they are the most important person in the world.  They truly feel loved because they have their parent to themselves. 

If you have more than one child, try to spend time with each of them individually.  The most important factor in quality time is not what you are doing together but that you are together. 

Tips for a Quality Time Love Language child:

  • Have quality conversations with them with eye contact and ask specific open ended questions about their day
  • Set a "date"  with them and do their favorite activity
  • Read with them
  • Play a board game together 

When you impact a child you are impacting generations.  So even if you don't feel like doing it, do it anyway.  😃
