Hello, Parents! Spring is here, and we hope you are excited about the season change as we are. This month we welcomed two children to our center, Victoria and Rosha, and we are excited for the two to connect with the other kids and have a wonderful time here at Beyond Care. We celebrated Valentine’s Day by making cards, dancing, reading books and creating colourful headbands. As usual, we bring you a great resource in this newsletter which we hope you find useful. Check it out below.
The 5 Love Languages of Children
There are 5 love languages. Knowing your spouse, friends and children’s special language will help you to understand them more. Years ago, when I was unaware of love languages, I would get so frustrated when my husband stopped me for a hug when I was trying to complete my list and get things done. I did not realize at the time that my love language was Acts of Service, and his was Physical Touch. So now, when he wants a hug, I gladly give one to him knowing he will be super happy, and of course, he helps me with my list.
What is your child’s love language? There is a test that you can do once they hit around 5 years of age to get an idea if you are not sure.
Remember it is important for children to receive ALL the love languages, but one of them speaks to the child stronger than the others.
The 5 Love Languages are:Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Quality Time, Gift Giving, & Physical Touch:
