Depending on the age of your child, have them take the 5 Love Language quiz or you can take it for them. As you or they are going through the quiz, discuss some of the questions. Ask why they would prefer one choice over the other.
Once the quiz is complete, look through the results with them. Ask if they feel the results correspond to how they feel they receive love. Ask if they believe you have done a good job in this area, or specifically, ask what you can do better. Be open minded and truly listen to what they have to say. It may be completely different than how you would want someone to show you love, but that's the point!
The biggest take away here is to actually follow through and adapt. Most likely you fill find something out you didn't know about your child. Be intentional and incorporate this new way to show love. The fact that you listened AND acted on the information will show just how much you care. Don't just go through the motions, simply taking the quiz with them isn't enough.
