Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of Don’t Make Me Count to Three! lays out a simple, Bible-based plan that shows parents how to help their kids tame their tongues and walk in the transforming power of Christ.

Are you ever embarrassed or shocked by what comes out of your child’s mouth? Do you raise your voice, threaten, and coerce but find yourself frustrated because nothing seems to work?  

In I Can’t Believe You Just Said That!, 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, we can set aside ineffective practices such as 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 of Jesus and his transformational power.

I am still listening to the book. i have started using a few tips and techniques and it is already making a difference in my children. I need good guides and this has great examples and explanations. Sometimes its a bit heavy but I still think its worth a listen

Blessed!

Trying to bring my children up Godly has felt impossible. Feeling like I am loosing ground daily (with myself too). After reading this book, and learning how to use Bible verses instead of my words (that quickly go from patient to yelling) for correction, there are so many more peaceful days. My children see God’s Word is alive and effective, “like beneficial surgery” my teenager said. Love this book! Must read. Encourage you to go back and forth in the Bible and this book, ask your children what verses really get at the problem and pray over it before correcting is needed for older children. Mine got on board so quickly! Blessed!

simply outstanding

a fantastic and well researched guide to Christian based parenting. I'm eager to try these methods and I'm deeply grateful that I was able to find this book. the narrator did a fantastic job and in fact almost too good particularly during the fighting scenes where I had to turn the volume down several times.

A very valuable book!

Children used to routinely be raised according to biblical principle AND to learn and memorize bible verses to guide their lives. This book gives great guidance in the biblical training of our children. Very worthwhile!

Insightful

Loved this book. It was wonderful how Ginger chose a step to get to 'The heart of the matter' by ideas of questions to ask and then give the child ideas of how to replace bad behavior with good behavior. Excellent.

Also loved the way the reader read the book. Thank you.

ok book.

i think its a good reminder to first, study yourself and intentions before trying to mentor your children. discipline, inward review, priorities are the takeaway for me.
