How to love a student

It’s crazy — most parents love their kids so much they’d sacrifice their own lives if it would help their kids love God, avoid injury, escape pain, and so on. We love our kids.

Meanwhile, our kids don’t always feel the love. Why is that?

In his updated edition of The Five Love Languages of Teenagers, Gary Chapman closes the gap between how parents express love and how kids receive it. The book includes pages of clues about what love looks like to a young person, and describes household environments in which parents and teens can flourish. A great resource for parents and youthworkers who are trying hard yet striking out.
