    This sounds like a very good book to have if you are raising teen-agers. Personally, I have no children, but I would definitely recommend this one to anyone I knew who had teens. Thank you!

      Hi Jeanne, thank you for stopping by! Dr. Chapman has a book regarding The Five Love Languages for couples, too! If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. If you’re not married, there is even a single’s edition! Yes, he’s thought of everything. 🙂 The links to both are in this first post:

    That is such a great advice! I loved the book of languages of love and have not thought about its meaning outside of a couple’s relationship! Big thump up for this great post 🙂

      Thank you so much, Sonja! Normally one does just think of it from a romantic relationship standpoint. When we really look at the love languages, though, we realize that everyone can benefit in different ways from each of the five mentioned in Dr. Chapman’s books. Thank you for stopping by!
