Listener Opinions

    " Not sure if the premise is correct about the five languages of love and their consequences in parenting, but the author does give some fairly obvious observations about how and why to foster the independence of a teenager. The religious referrals are particularly suspect in that their inclusion in essentially a how-to book from a psychologist (scientist) makes me question the science behind his advice. Yet, some things in this book are useful. Apparently, I need all the help I can get. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tonya | 2/3/2014

    " I loved this book. Great insights and he is so good at explaining them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BL | 2/1/2014

    " This has been a real big eye opener for me. It has totally changed the way I deal with my 13 year old son, which in turn, has changed the way he reacts and deals with me. It also helps in my interactions with both of my sons and their friends. One of the best books of teenagers I have read yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Temoca | 1/20/2014

    " I think the points in here are interesting. I could pick out the love languages of my kids. I passed the book to one of my students. She was talking about what her parents do to show her they love her and how that's not what she wants. She would rather them do something else. It's a book relevant and if kids can see the connection I think it could be helpful. It's probably more for high school kids though. It's a concept I don't think most middle school kids think about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nojood Alsudairi | 1/16/2014

    " I learned many things from this book. It is hard to be a mom of a ten-year-old-teenager. I need to "practice'being patient all the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lonely Planet | 1/14/2014

    " The author has been a marriage/family counselor for over 30 years who addresses relationship issues from a Christian worldview. His main premise, that we all need unconditional love and that we all have a certain "love language" as part of our personality by which we most like to give and receive love. The trick is to discover your teen's primary love language and to express it as often as possible. I always wondered why my mother never gave me hugs and kisses, but lost buttons would magically appear re-sewn onto my clothing and the best portions of meat would show up on my plate (Acts of Service). I used to wonder why my father-in-law seems so materialistic, giving us lots of gifts all the time (Giving of Gifts). I used to wonder why my former boyfriend always had to hold my hand *all* the time (Physical Touch). I wonder why I feel closest to my husband after doing something fun on a nice date (Quality Time). You get the picture. The last of the 5 love languages is Words of Affirmation. This idea of the 5 love languages has hit the secular counseling circles and is in our best interest to learn something about it to improve our relationships. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 4/11/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delores | 11/24/2012

    " This is a very straight forward read with a lot of good information on parenting teenagers. The author provides insight on how parents need to transition from parenting a child to parenting a teenager. I checked this out from the library but I think I will have to purchase a copy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Priscilla | 7/24/2012
