Gary Chapman, PhD and Ross Campbell, MD have written some awesome books about the 5 Love Languages. If you’ve never read them – do it. And visit their website, www.5lovelanguages.com to find out your primary love language. Their advice is eye-opening and sooooo helpful when trying to show your appreciation to others.
In their books they state that everyone has a primary way that they like to give and receive love and appreciation.
The five love languages they describe are:
Words of Affirmation – this language is all about using kind and encouraging words – frequently.
Acts of Service – people in this group see a helping hand as a sign of affection.
Receiving Gifts – for these people gifts are proof that you think about them and that you care.
Quality Time – this language requires giving others your full and undivided attention. Be present.
Physical Touch – closeness and touch help this group to feel a connection to you.
Figuring out the primary love languages of the people you care about will help you build strong relationships. And the teacher-student relationship is of utmost importance when it comes to learning.
