We are living in sobering times. Children and adults alike are feeling vulnerable and scared. It’s more important than ever as a parent to think about the most effective way to express your love to your child.

Last month, around Valentine’s Day, we held a love language workshop for the parents in our Early LIFE Early Childhood Education program, during which we took “The 5 love LANGUAGES®” quiz.

Knowing someone’s love language is helpful so that you can communicate your love in a way that it is understood, whether by your spouse, your child, and/or your parents.

These are “The 5 love LANGUAGES®”, via fivelovelanguages.com:

  1. Words of Affirmation
  2. Acts of Service
  3. Receiving Gifts
  4. Quality Time
  5. Physical Touch

What’s your love language? And how are you choosing to communicate your love during these times? As we practice social distancing, wash our hands often, and keep our hands off of our faces, we need to make sure to follow CDC guidelines. As New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said, “The goal for me is socially distanced but spiritually connected.”
