Primary Love Language

Primary Love Language

FIND YOUR CHILDS PRIMARY LOVE LANGUAGE

Last week I attended a very interesting workshop in Princess Z’s school.The workshop was called ‘Find your child’s primary love language’ which was all about helping us (parents) to find out our child’s primary language for more love,confidence,safety,and success.

Two professional and experienced speakers
Dr.Monica MendesClinical Psychologist and Cindy can de MeeksPersonal and Professional Coach from The Valiant clinic were presented to speak in detail about this topic.Before I talk about it in more details let me tell you a bit more about The Valiant Clinic.

Spanning across 15,000 sqm and located at City Walk.Valiant Clinic is part of a vibrant residential and retail destination.It is managed and operated by the Houston methodist global health care services.It is an outpatient center for health checkup in the region with having a preventive and proactive approach to wellness and health management.They provide diagnostic services across a range of medical specialities supported by cutting edge technology and innovation that guarantee a superior patient experience.

Moving on, you all must have heard about Gary Chapman the author behind the famous book series The 5 love languages.Today I will be talking about those 5 primary love languages I learnt myself during the workshop

Like Mr.Chapman says. Attitude. Behavior. Development. Everything depends on the love relationship between you and your child. When children feel loved, they do their best.

Each child, expresses and receives love through one of the five different communication styles .Your love language may be totally different from that of your child. While you are doing all you can to show your child love, he may be hearing it as something completely opposite.

It is  highly important to uncover your child’s love language in order for you to fill up his/her love tank by feeling loved by you.

The Five Love Languages of Children, Dr.Rose Campbell and Gary Campbell discovered was that children understand love in five basic ways: physical touch, words of affirmation, quality time, gifts and acts of service. If you have several children, chances are they each understand love in a different way.

Often parents think that the ideal is to treat each child in the same way. However, a hug means more to some children than to others. So, for example if each child gets a hug, some actually receive more than others. Discovering the primary love language of each child is the key to effectively communicating love.Every child has a special way of receiving love.Take a look below at the 5 primary love languages: 👇🏻.

5 Primary love language
1.Receiving Gifts
2.Physical Touch
3.Acts Of Service
4.Quality Time
5. Words of Affirmation- This was my result

One of these five is the primary love language of your child. If you don’t speak that language, your child will not feel loved. Loving children effectively requires parents to express love in a language that the child understands.The ideal is that children learn to receive and give love in all five languages. This prepares them for good relationships as adults. Your example is the most effective method of teaching. Love your children effectively and they will learn to love others.

Winter Collection

Winter Collection

As winter is approaching it’s time to cuddle up the kids in their winter wear.Princess Z is not fond of jackets/or coats.So this year I thought of buying her warm clothes that make her feel comfortable and she doesn’t have to cover herself with layers.Whether your buying for your boys/girls…listed below are my Top 4 shops I highly recommend to visit and buy winter clothes from:

1.MARKS & SPENCER-If your looking for bright colors and lots of bling this winter than Marks & Spencer is a must visit.Having a lovely and a massive variety of winter collection for both boy and girls it was hard to go limited.(liked mostly everything they had ). The clothes are a bit pricey but they will surely last till next season.Here are a few items I picked and bought for princess Z.(She was happy to model in them too 🙂 )

P.S They have a great collection of winter sets for girls(long sweaters with stockings)

Loved the color so bought this set for Princess Z

THE CHILDREN’S PLACE-If your looking for something more comfortable like track suits for your kids to keep them warm this winter than this is the place.It was hard to find something that fitted Princess Z perfectly here (Being taller than her age group and a bit skinny). The clothes were either lose or either short.But nevertheless they have a great variety of winter clothing specially track suits.Sizes ranging from 2T-7T.

These are a few items I got for Princess Z

MOTHER CARE-Honestly I prefer buying from mother care during sale time as you get to save a lot.But Every branch according to me doesn’t have the same collection.They have a lot to offer from warm pajamas suits to jackets,sweaters,pullover and much more.This is one stop shop for all your winter needs.

F&F- There are only a few outlets of F&F here in Dubai.They have great collection of jackets,sweaters,stockings as well a great variety of Christmas jumpers.I just bought a Christmas jumper from here for Princess Z this time as the things I liked didn’t have her size.P.S The sizes here sell out fast.

It was pleasure knowing each and every brand and what they were specialized in.Once I was done I hurried myself to the hair station and got my hair curled by one of the professionals from The Nail Pavilion.I have never had a different hairstyle since the past 2 years so I was immediately in love with it. 🙂 .The next thing was my skin analysis at the Herbal Essence table.It was a long procedure and I was totally nervous about it but anyway my results was dehydrated skin because of very less water consumption 🙁 .

As I was getting late from my daughters school meeting I had to leave early.On my way out I was handed over a big heavy bag filled with goodies.Thank you TishTash and the lovely brands for this  🙂

About Me

About Me

Hello! and welcome to my blog.I’m Alina(the mama behind this blog). I’m from Karachi, Pakistan. My Birthday is on the 31st of March. Dubai has been my home for the past 26 years.(Have been brought up and raised here to Dubai). I graduated from the American University in Dubai with a degree in Interior Design. Got married 👰at a very early age but things didn’t work out and soon became a proud single mom of a princess Z. Zaara was born on the 8th of December here and just turned 4.

I never had plans of starting up my blog. Sharing ones experiences with the world needed plenty of extra time.That’s whats being a full time mom was all about.I had no time for anything else just running around my only child 👶🏻 all the time.Now that Princess Z is old enough and a little independent I can find some time for myself.Seeing other moms inspired me and compliments from strangers encouraged me to move forward and further on.

My blog is more like my journal.Mostly about the things I do and experience as a mother in my everyday life. From fashion styles,food reviews and recipes,to do at home arts & crafts,and much more… in short It’s basically all about sharing what I love doing 😊

In the end I hope my blog helps all around learn and discover new things 🙂
