We are starting off this great month by focusing on the topics of Kindness, Empathy, and Communication! This past week, we had the staff take the Love Language Quiz. They put their love language and name on a heart and hung it in the designated area for the other staff to see. The reason for the Love Language Quiz is to better understand how to communicate effectively with others as well as how to love your loved ones in a way that makes sense to them.
So, what are the Five Love Languages, here is a breakdown of each of them?
We encourage you and your family at home to take the Love Language Quiz! These quizzes are made for people of all ages, which will be really beneficial for your littles and what works for them.
If your child scores Quality Time, they feel loved through sharing time with people. Cook together, go on bike rides together and set aside some one on one time with them throughout the day.
Receiving Gifts, they like receiving gifts that they can treasure. Pick them flowers, or start a treasure box and add to it.
Acts of Service, they love helping others and getting to do things with their parents, but especially independently. Helping washing a car, making their own lunch with minimal help, or surprising a family member with something they’ve done for them.
Words of Affirmation, they thrive off of spoken or written encouragement. Write a note; tell them you’re proud and why.
Physical Touch, they love when you are close! Spend an intentional 5 minutes a day at least being physically present with them.
Be sure to come back next week as we continue to discuss the topics of Kindness, Empathy, and Communication!
