Understanding your Child’s Love Language

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
~ Frederick Douglass

According to Dr Gary Chapman, every child has a special way of expressing and receiving love, and when the parent communicates love to the child in their love language, it bridges the gap between a parent and a child and creates a healthy relationship between them.   

It will make the parent a more giving and loving person in the relationship. Speaking your child’s primary love language, along with the other love languages, shows the child that you love him and care about him, which will lead to a responsible adult later. 

Every child has an emotional tank, fill it with love

Emotional tank is equivalent to the amount of love and understanding shown by a parent that fuels the growth and development of the child. In difficult times, it is the foundation laid in early years that will take him through these times. 

Once we understand the child’s love language, it becomes easier to fill and refill the child’s emotional tank, by loving them unconditionally, irrespective of whether they meet your needs, expectations, did their homework or don’t enjoy school and so on. 

When their emotional tank is filled, it can fuel them on challenging days, and help them to grow through it. This makes it easier to discipline them, as opposed to when their emotional tank is running empty.
