A few weeks ago an issue with one of my children kept me up late into the night. You know, one of those little things that you can’t quite figure out.
After pondering, praying, and a bit of crying, I eventually reached out to my friend and homeschooling mentor, Rachel DeMille.
In just a sentence or two I outlined the problem and asked if she had any advice. And in one sentence she solved it for me:
“What’s your child’s love language?”
Hmmmm. Love languages? I had that filed back in my brain somewhere as it relates to marriage, but I had never paid it much attention when it comes to my children.
And after some research into my child’s love language and a little attention in that area, this so-called “issue” pretty much vanished. Vanished, I tell you!
