Communicating Love Is Core to Parenthood

Of course parents love their kids, but we may not realize how little we’re communicating love to them. 

Using the five love languages, we can uncover the most effective way to show our love. Whether that’s writing a letter, or sharing a hug, or saying “I’m sorry” for something we’ve done wrong, it’s important to find out what your children respond to. 

Here are the five love languages:

  1. Words of affirmation
  2. Quality time
  3. Gifts 
  4. Touch
  5. Works of service

How do you show love to your family?
