Love Language/Physical Touch

My son, 15-year-old Landon, used to snuggle up on the couch with me when we'd watch a movie, hug me in greeting, and even asked me to tuck him in at night. Three years ago this stopped abruptly. Now I'm lucky if I get a high-five or fist bump and if I want a hug I have to chase him down. He's 5'9; I'm 5'4. The chase is futile. I understand that it is natural for a son to push away his mother, but there have been moments in the last three years that I mourned the hugs of my son and wished I hadn't taken them for granted. But, I've learned that Landon's love language is not physical touch, it's quality time. He likes to be heard and feel that his words are valued. I had to flip the switch and speak his language in order to show him my love, instead of forcing my love language on him.

Great topic Heather! It's definitely one not talked about often and one that you just have to try to figure it out on your own, at least for me anyway.
