One question I have received over and over the years is “Do your twins have the same personality?” Although my girls are identical, yes they have very distinct personalities… Adelaide love pink and dresses whereas Moana is a blue and shorts kinda girl. Adelaide loves fish n chips whereas Moana must have calamari.
But do you parent your children different too? A book I am reading at the moment is The Five Love Languages for Children exactly for this reason.
Even though you have multiples, it is highly likely that your children also speak a different love language? Sometimes they wager for your attention, and other times they ignore you completely. Sometimes they are filled with gratitude and affection, and other times they seem totally indifferent. Attitude. Behaviors. Development. Everything depends on the love relationship between you and your child. When children feel loved, they do their best. But how can you make sure your child feels loved?
Since 1992, Dr. Gary Chapman’s best-selling book The 5 Love Languages has helped millions of couples develop stronger, more fulfilling relationships by teaching them to speak each others’ love language. Each child, too, expresses and receives love through one of five different communication styles. And your love language may be totally different from that of your child. While you are doing all you can to show your child love, he may be hearing it as something completely opposite. Discover your child’s primary language and learn what you can do to effectively convey unconditional feelings of respect, affection, and commitment that will resonate in your child’s emotions and behavior.
