All tagged physical touch
The teenage years are such a struggle for us and them. I see the pressure my daughter is under and I try very hard to understand. Physical touch is one of my love languages but it's not my daughter's, so it's a delicate balance of figuring out what she needs.
I'm not sure when would be an optimal time to learn about love and what we need in order to feel loved in any relationship. This is a little story of how I wish I would have know about the five love languages well before I got married. It probably would have altered my choice.
