Understanding Your Child’s Love Language
Yesterday, I completed the Kids Coaching Connection Program, endorsed by the International Coach Federation (ICF)! and became a life coach for children! I cannot tell you how pleased I am to have been given the multitude of tools that I now possess to help children move through their emotional challenges. Thank you to the many families that have allowed me to help their children, in this capacity, over the past year and a half.
One of the tools that I was reminded of in this program was “The Five Love Languages for Children,” which originated from Gary Chapman’s book of the same name. Condensing his work, he describes the love languages as follows:
1. Words of Affirmation – These children feel appreciated and loved when they hear positive messages from others. Examples include “I love you.” “You did an incredible job playing defense today. Did you see how many times you prevented the other team from scoring?”
