If you have a teenage family member or friend you want to introduce to The Five Love Languages, this book is the perfect place to start. Written with teens in mind, it breaks down the love language concept and applies it to the life of an average teenager in language they’ll appreciate and enjoy.
"When dealing with teenagers it's really sort of like finding your way through a maze. Every child is different and has different emotional and physical needs. After reading this book, I was really able to start to sense what my children need. By employing the use of the love language it really makes your child know that you understand and love them. It eases situations that could escalate especially when a child is upset. The way I parent with teenagers is really different from when they were little and I think by using these love languages in your arsenal of parenting is truly helpful."

"Urgh. Teenagers sure are difficult. Although I am not a mom of teens yet, I'm already anticipating the beatific angels transforming into acne-pocked, oily monsters full of angst and contempt for "the man"...meaning me.
I was absolutely thrilled when I found that Gary Chapman had created a sequel of sorts to the 5 Love Languages. The principle of love languages was the same; there are 5 languages that people respond to and feel loved by: Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Gifts, Physical Touch, and Quality Time.
However, this book helps parents to navigate the waters of troubled teenagers and how to make them feel loved...without maybe feeling suffocated by mom and dad's love."

"The 5 Love Languages of Teenagers By Gary Chapman.
Gary Chapman first wrote the book "Five Love Languages". Since then the books have been customised for different markets including Men, Children, Teenagers, Singles and Military.
This version follows a similar format that outlines the five Love Languages: Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Gifts, and Acts of Service. This is followed by chapters on how to discover your teenager's primary love language, and how the Love languages affect their love, responsibility development, independence, and dealing with failure.
There is a section of Speaking your teenager's love language and applying them in a single parent family, and blended families.
The book is an excellent practical resource for parents to understand their teenager, how they feel, and how to express love to a teenager in a way that has meaning to them. This unconditional love boosts a teenager's emotional needs and therefore their self-esteem.
There are lots of practical suggestions and ideas for each of the love languages.
A book that should be read regularly by every parent."

I wrote in another review about teenage boundaries that my oldest two teenagers just left home this year. One started college last Fall and the other graduated HS this spring and started a full-time job for a year before he goes to college. They have grown into amazing young adults, and every time I see them they seem to be maturing more. Not everything I did was wrong - something was right, and we're STILL communicating, which is incredible and definitely thanks in part to this book! My youngest son, almost 16, is in full-blown teen years and I'm about to read this book again. Plus I now have two teenage stepdaughters and I've seen that there's a chapter here for blended families which is going to be absolutely invaluable.
In short, this is an incredible book and well worth the investment of time and money. Learning to communicate with your teens reaps rewards not only during the younger teenage years, but on through their young adulthood and I'm sure well into the future. In my opinion, it's fairly easy to raise young children, but teenagers are the greatest challenge ever presented to the modern parent given everything we and they face today. This book will help you navigate those years and help you stay in touch with the greatest gift you have been given - your kids!
If I have any critique of the book, it is that it does not take as seriously the issues that face today’s teenagers as it should. The last chapter dips toes into the water of addictions (and really does not specifically touch other very tough parenting issues). I wish Chapman would have addressed some of those very difficult issues. Even with the addiction issues, he did not really provide major help. To be fair, he pointed to other resources (which are helpful, by the way). I just wish he would have addressed these hot button topics in specific ways. Also, there are other major issues that teens are facing that were never even gently hinted to in the book.
All in all, I strongly recommend this book. It is not overly “religious”, and it is not judgmental in any way. I do not think his perspective is antiquated, but is fresh and practical.
