How to Not Raise a Super Villain: Speak Your Kids' Love Language

Air Date 11/16/2016

Get Social and Listen

In episode 7, Eva and Jake talk with Dr. Gary Chapman, author of “The 5 Love Languages” and “The 5 Love Languages for Children,” about how to figure out our children’s love languages and then learn to speak those languages if they aren’t our own native tongue.



This conversation sets up an important “listicle" discussion where we break down the love languages of our “favorite" famous fictional villains. (Because maybe The Joker would have been a little less ornery if his parents had read Dr. Chapman’s book.) Listen to the show on iTunes, Stitcher, or almost any of your favorite podcast feeds.

Jake Roberson (@jake_roberson) likes Salsa Verde Doritos. He also loves his wife and four children ... just as long as they don’t eat his Doritos. He has several books to his name and he has been assured that his library card will be reinstated just as soon as he returns the books and pays the fine. In moments when he can be taken seriously, Jake will tell you that he loves Jesus, adores his wife and kids - even if they eat his Doritos - and really enjoys writing about most any topic that interests him. He loves being a part of a community, especially when said community involves other dads and food. Blogging is one of his passions and he kinda/sorta/really likes micro-blogging. (Which is just a fancy way of saying that he digs Twitter.) Additionally, he is always willing to talk about any one of the following subjects: God, football (American-style), pop culture, classic gothic fiction, video games (*Gasp!*), and creative burger ideas. Oh, and he is Focus on the Family's social media strategist.
