Have any of you read either the original or the 5love languages of children?

Basic premise is that everyone speaks a primary and se ond language that speaks love to them. The 5 are: touch, quality time, acts of service, words of affirmation and gifts.

Do you know what your DD (or other kids are)?

I've never read those books.  Sounds interesting.

They are very good! Gary Chapman is the author. It is written from a Christian POV, but regardless of your religious beliefs they are fantastic on relationships. It has helped me with my DH, and really helped my dh understand his father. (who is a very hard man to get along with, get to know etc.)

I've read it. I think it's oversimplistic, to be honest, but I say that only because I've studied communication since college (but with teens, not young children). It's a great introductory text to the concept, though, don't get me wrong. It just depends on where the reader is.

But this reminded me I have the paperback, not the Kindle edition. I'm going to get that for reference. Thanks!

OP, since you've already read it, I suggest you check out the book Nutrutreshock, which is sort of less fluff and more, like, data-driven.

I haven't read it, although my Mom has both books and swears by them. My daughter seems to thrive most on quality time.

I think that McKenna's would be quality time, McKaela is probably touch but it is hard to tell, and Maisie, probably touch as well. Not just because she is so young but she is very much a snuggler and bashful so she hides her face in the nape of my neck a lot.
