'I Can't Believe You Just Said That!' Author and Christian Parenting Expert Offers Simple Plan for Taming Your Child's Tongue

MEDIA ADVISORY, April 24, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Are you ever embarrassed or shocked by what comes out of your child's mouth? Do you raise your voice and threaten, but find yourself frustrated because nothing seems to work?

In her new book, I Can't Believe You Just Said That! Biblical Wisdom for Taming Your Child's Tongue (Thomas Nelson, ISBN: 9781400204441), Ginger Hubbard provides a practical, three-step plan to reach beyond the behaviors of tongue-related struggles—such as lying, tattling, and whining—to address your child's heart. After all, as Matthew 12:34 tells us, "the mouth speaks what the heart is full of."

By moving past the idea that parenting is about rigid rule-setting or behavior management, Hubbard—bestselling author of Don't Make Me Count to Three! — explains how we can set aside ineffective practices like scolding, ignoring the offense, or merely administering punishment. Instead, we start to see that our children's outbursts are prime opportunities for the ultimate goal of all parenting: to guide them to the redemptive work and transformational power of Jesus.

Any parent knows the words that come flying out of children's mouths never fail to surprise. And it's often hard to know in the moment how to address the issue with the long-term view in mind.

In I Can't Believe You Just Said That!, Hubbard offers a solution in three, simple steps:

  1. Ask heart-probing questions to unearth what's beneath the behavior
     
  2. Reprove the child biblically, incorporating what God's word says specifically about the heart issue
     
  3. Train the child in how to put on the right behavior once they have put off the wrong one

A veteran homeschooler and sought after-speaker, Hubbard writes with candor and humor, providing readers with relatable "been there" anecdotes, followed seamlessly with sound biblical wisdom and practical ideas for addressing the most difficult areas of child training.

"Ginger Hubbard is fresh, funny and full of wisdom," praised #1 New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst. "Her advice is overflowing with God's instruction and grace."

I Can't Believe You Just Said That! shows parents how to effectively teach a child to honor God with his or her words and instill real life change that will serve them a lifetime.
