I have read a good number of relationship books, but few have made as lasting an impression as Gary Chapman’s The 5 Love Languages. I cannot remember if the first time I read the book was before our marriage or in the early years in our marriage, but it made an impact. The concept of people primarily responding to and expressing love in one of the five love languages (Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Gifts, Acts of Service, & Physical Touch) made so much sense. I related to the examples and recognized the similarities and differences between me and D. Because D is also familiar with the book, we both try to make a conscious effort to speak each other’s love language and our marriage is stronger as a result. Therefore, I was excited to find out that Gary Chapman has also written A Teen’s Guide to the 5 Love Languages. The basic concepts are the same, but it is written in a manner that is more relevant to teens. The book talks about all of a teen’s relationships: family, friends, and dating. I was not sure how much this book would focus on the dating part (and if it is too early to share it with my 11 year old daughter) but I found it age-appropriate. The first five chapter are each dedicated to one of the five love languages. The other five chapters delve more deeply into certain relational issues. At the end of the book is an easy quiz to help you determine your primary love language profile. This is a quick read (126 pages) that would help all young people navigate the relationships in their life, both now and in the future.
Are you having a hard time communicating with your teens? Are they having a hard time communicating with you, their siblings, teachers, and well, just about anyone? This book makes a perfect gift for your teen! I highly recommend this book to help facilitate better communication among your teens (and tweens). This book prompted my teenager to take her quiz online to find what her predominant love language was. She was surprised by her results. We are all ready to encourage her in her language. She can also recognize others' languages to better communicate. Grab this book. It's not a thick read and it has quizzes and scenarios that are very fruitful.
What a great book for teens. This could really change they way teens interact with each other. It's funny because I have been having conversations with my daughter about making sure she is asking her friends about themselves, not always talking about herself. And as she is enter the stage of liking boys and boys liking her I can see how this book can help her navigate some areas. This book also addresses how to interact with moms and dads, brothers and sisters. I really think every teen should read this book. If they did I can see them developing much healthier relationships then I ever had. Can you imagine having this knowledge going from a young age, I think I would be a much better wife if I had gained this insight early on in life instead of after I got married. A copy of this book was given to me through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
