You know that you love your child. But are you expressing your love in a way your child understands? Every child has a unique way of feeling loved.  As we walk through this book by NYT bestselling author Gary Chapman, you can discover your child’s unique communication style - and unlock the key to helping your children know they are truly loved.  Once you know a child’s love language - and speak it - you can better meet their emotional needs, help them be a successful learner and even discipline more effectively, all while building a strong foundation of love for your child.
