A colleague of mine share a book titled, The 5 Love Languages of Children. It is part of a series written by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell. The book has family stories about parents and children. It describes the 5 love languages that helps children understand parents’ love. They are: physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts and acts of service.
“Love looks out for the interests of another; so does discipline. So discipline is certainly an act of love. And the more a child feels loved, the easier it is to discipline that child.” (page 127)
