In a teenager’s world of hashtags and chat acronyms, where relationships are measured by Facebook likes and Instagram followers, and where a long-term friendship can be discarded with a click of the mouse, developing lasting, meaningful relationships can be a challenge. But there is hope.
This 10 chapters, over 130 pages paperback book, about teen love languages is perfect for the pre-teen and teen.
The five love languages are:
This book also includes chapters on siblings and how to apologize. There are also charts, quizzes, and fill-in-the-blank that makes them think when they are in different situations.
I really liked the section on Siblings. Cameron is a teen and Austin is almost a pre-teen in December, so they are very close in age.
This section asks how they can be better towards each other, which is very helpful when they start arguing and fighting (because they’re boys and that’s what they do 😆 )
A Teen’s Guide To The 5 Love Languages
About the Book
In the new book, Chapman lays a foundation for what love really is (a choice) and how that translates into all relationships, and takes teens step-by-step through each of the individual love languages. He outlines the general characteristics of each love language, explains the various dialects within each language, and offers practical examples of how to communicate the love languages in the daily ups-and-downs of relationships. He also spends time focusing on helping teens navigate their relationship with their parents and siblings (it doesn’t have to be negative), shares how to handle anger and apologies, and encourages teens to focus on their “tribe.”
