I Can't Believe You Just Said That! Book Review

I Can't Believe You Just Said That! By Ginger Hubbard

Biblical Wisdom for Taming Your Child's Tongue 

The bestselling 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.

My Thoughts: When I first started reading this book I was immediately impressed that it wasn't looking to just treat the specific bad behavior that the child would be having at the time, but instead look deeper. There's so much here about helping the parents become better with a biblical purpose and is a great long term resource.
