What a wonderful world!

I want to finish up my postings on the Love Languages of Children. I briefly touched on the final love language, acts of service, in my original post. Therefore, I will only offer a few extra points here. "In serving your children, the main motive-doing what's best- means you are trying to fill their love tanks." The cool thing about this language is that, as we are showing our children love, they are learning how to serve others through our example. This is becoming a lost art in our "ME" oriented society. "Thus acts of service has an intermediate step. We serve our children, but as they are ready, we teach them how to serve themselves and then others." Even though children will gain the most from their primary love language, they actually gain from experiencing all of the love languages. In light of that, it's important to show them a good example of appropriate physical affection, loving words, quality time, thoughtful gift giving, and kind acts of service. They will learn by our example. What a wonderful world that could be!
