The first ‘5 Love Languages’ book I’ve read: very practical but a bit redundant. Chapman speaks from his own experience and other parents he has counseled–he knows his stuff. However, Chapman strongly appeals to one specific sect of families: suburban, Christian, middle-class, white families. This is understandable. Chapman is not a minority, therefore he has no expertise to speak into the complicated minority parent-teenager struggle. I’ve personally read this to understand how to love better as a youth pastor–some things were very valuable.
