Love Languages

I have been looking for something for me to write about that will do two things, the first help me to be a better parent and the second to share with you what I have learned.

Three years ago when Jeff and I were looking forward to being married, one of the books our pastor suggested us to read was The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. We did and we learned quite abit about each other. Not long after that I picked up The Five Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell, M.D. I haven't really read it at all. It's one of those I will read it when I have time books.

Well, as I was having a difficult time loving our 4year old this morning, I sat down and was enjoying some quiet time when I was glancing at the book shelf. There sitting with a bit of dust on it was The Five Love Languages of Children. So, I am going to try and read it and learn how to love dear sweet Josh. He has had a hard time in his young life, and now I want to make it easier for him. He seems to be a child that has gotten over looked. He wants attention but doesn't know how to get it. When he does get it, it is so foriegn to him he don't know how to react.

I will start sharing my thoughts tomorrow and then for however long. I think I will go chapter by chapter. Do join me and share your thoughts also.
