I know there has been a lack of crafty posts this week. I wish I had a good excuse for you........, other than I just didn't feel like posting. But really that is all it is. I'm sure I'll find something to post about next week.
For today I am very excited to have a review and giveaway. Do you remember last week when I gave away a copy of "A Perfect Pet for Peyton"? I talked a little about "The 5 Love Languages", what an awesome martial book it is. Dr. Gary Chapman, the author of "The 5 Love Languages" has teamed up with Dr. Ross Campbell (an authority on parent-child relationships) to bring about the book "The 5 Love Languages of Children". This book is geared toward parents learning their child's love language and how to help their child feel truly loved.
While reading this book I keept my 5 children in mind. Some of them were a little harder to figure out which love language they spoke, others I picked up on very quickly. Lotte is still to small to really have one love language so she needs to feel them all most of the time. As a parent it is a little tiring thinking of how to help each one individually. But then I didn't become a parent for the relaxation.
I am really excited about applying the things I learned in the book to my pre-teen son. Those years that are so hard and awkward to get through. I am really hoping as I read the book again and again I will be able to ease his transition into adulthood. I feel like now have an edge that I didn't have before. A way of talking with my kids that no one, peer or adult, can change what I am telling my child. That I love them with everything that I have and ALWAYS will. In my humble opinion this book is an invaluable addition to your family. Here is a little from the publisher.
To be their best, children need to feel loved. But if you and your child speak different love languages, your affection might get lost in translation, affecting the child’s attitude, behavior, and development. Dr. Gary Chapman’s groundbreaking Five Love Languages series has helped millions of couples communicate love more clearly, and Dr. Ross Campbell M.D. has applied the innovative system to children as well. The 5 Love Languages of Children gives practical suggestions for learning how your children interpret love and creating a sense of security in which they can thrive.
I am happy to be able to give away one copy of the book to one of my readers. How do you enter to win? Rafflecopter is going to walk you through it.
