Growing Kids God’s Way---Touchpoints of Love for your Children
Designed by Gary and Joy Hanson

Do you know each family member’s love language? Here is an exercise that we want you and your kids
to try. Within each group, rate the sentence 1 to 5 according to what would make you feel most
appreciated and loved. The number 5 represents what you most appreciate; number 1, in contrast, is what you least appreciate in each group. (No individual grouping can have a number repeated twice).

Group One

A_________________ Mom or Dad says, “You really did a great job on that. I appreciate it.”
B__________________Mom or Dad unexpectedly created a study table/office for your exclusive use in the house.
C__________________Mom or Dad brings you home a surprise treat from the store. D__________________Mom or Dad invites you to MacDonald’s for ice-cream and to talk. E__________________Mom or Dad makes a point to give you a big hug and kiss you before you leave the house.

Group Two

A__________________Mom or Dad brings you home a special food treat from the local hawker stall. B__________________Mom or Dad volunteers to type your project for you so you won’t have to. C__________________Mom or Dad gives you a hug even when you were just passing by room to room. D__________________Mom or Dad invites you to sit down and talk about your day. E__________________Mom or Dad tells you how much he or she appreciates you.
