My love languages are quality time, physical touch, and words of affirmation. My husband’s top love languages are acts of service, physical touch, words of affirmation.
I knew the importance of knowing our love languages. I really never thought about my children’s love languages. So last valentine’s day I asked them questions and tried to discover their love languages. I also asked them again today because as we grow sometimes our needs changes. Here is what I discovered.
Austin: His top love language is receiving gifts. Second is words of affirmation. His next one is quality time, and his last is acts of service.
Naomi: Her top love language is quality time. Second is words of affirmation. Third is acts of service. Last is receiving gifts.
Abigail: Her top love language is receiving gifts. Second is physical touch. Third one is quality time. Lastly words of affirmation.

As a parent I believe we should know how our children feel loved. I think we should try to know their individual love languages, and try to show them love. We need to remember that each of our children are different and feel things differently. So if you haven’t done so yet try to learn your child’s love language. You might be surprised at what you discover.
