    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.

  8. Grace Based Discipline

    Karis Kimmel Murray

    $13.99

    Every parent wants to know,

    "How do I discipline my kids?"

    "Parents face a crazy paradox," says author Karis Kimmel Murray. "We love our kids exactly as they are, but we also love them too much to let them stay that way "

    Disciplining kids is tough . . . even on a good day. We just want the 140-character version of what we should do when our kids' behavior scrapes the enamel off our sanity. Here's what God says:

    "The Lord disciplines the one he loves," (Hebrews 12:6).

    With humor and down-to-earth practicality, Karis shares stories of trial and triumph straight from the trenches of parenting. From the first page, Karis gives desperate parents a reliable recipe for peace, boundaries, and effective discipline.

    In Grace Based Discipline, learn how to:

    • Stay calm, even when you're staring down the barrel of a loaded toddler
    • Customize your discipline to your child's unique personality, age, and needs
    • Set rules based on God's priorities, not yours
    • Apply consequences that really work

    Here's the good news: you can do this. Responsive, grace-based parents are just ordinary people who've learned to tap into divine help.

    Be at your best . . . even when your kids are at their worst.

    Grace Based Discipline will show you how
