The most unfortunate part of this book is that there is no finite way to find out their love languages. The book recommends observation and experimentation (trying one language for several weeks, then another for other week) to determine love languages. I'm not saying these are not valid ways to find the primary love languages of your children (in fact, through observation and talking with my husband have determined our 7 year old's primary languages are physical touch and words of affirmation and our 9 year old's primary languages are physical touch and acts of service), but I was hoping for a quiz as in the adult version.
Otherwise, "The Five Love Languages for Children" was a good reminder of what the different love languages are, how to properly use them (examples), and how they affect our children. The best reminder was that you cannot love a child only in their primary love language but you need to use all of them. So really if you just love them with physical touch, words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, and giving gifts then you should be set regardless of whether you realize their primary languages or not (in my opinion).
