Everyone is Unique and Receives and Gives Love Differently
Understanding love languages not only helps people understand how they receive and give love but also how they communicate with others in the world. Throughout school, careers, and social interactions, understanding our individual love languages can help us connect more comfortably with others. Our first language is our native tongue (like English or Spanish) that we use to communicate with others. Our second language is our own personal love language that defines why we feel and do the things we do. Love languages can include compliments, physical touch, a warm embrace, hearing “I love you”, small thoughtful gifts, etc. It’s important to know to meet the emotional needs of the people you love to help them feel secure and supported.
Dr. Gary Chapman developed his series of books on the concept of love languages. He introduces the traits each individual has that makes them unique to their specific love language. Identifying one’s own love language can help strengthen all types of relationships throughout life.
How Love Languages Help Students be Better Learners and Achievers
Most people desire to be truly known by the ones they love. Whether your student says it or not, he/she craves for you to know them and what they need the most from you. Teenagers need guidance as they experience essential life lessons. Help your student find the best way for them to communicate so they can mature into a successful adult. Understanding your student’s love languages and your own love languages can help parents:
- Express love to your teen effectively
- Navigate the key issues in your teen’s life, including anger and independence
- Set boundaries that are enforced with discipline and consequences
- Support and love your teen when he or she fails
The Love Languages test is available for teenagers and for parents. Take the test with your student and learn more about each! Check out one of the quizzes at the 5 Love Languages website and see what Love language you connect too. After, sit with your student and review the results. Together, create a list of goals that help you both be true to yourself and your love languages.
