Anyone ever had a kid who whined, lied, tattled, or complained? (🙋🏼♀️) If so, then today’s episode is for you. I am so excited to share this packed, practical chat with best-selling author, Ginger Hubbard, with all of you.
I especially loved talking to Ginger, because her early books, “Don’t Make me Count to Three” and “I Can’t Believe You Just Said That!” shaped my early parenting years. (Who could have guessed that I’d one day be interviewing her on a podcast?! Life is funny like. 😉) It is so great to have Ginger with us to share practical advice and encouragement on redirecting our kids’ behavior – especially the verbal kind (whining, lying, complaining, tattling…) with a simple three-step plan. You are going to love all of Ginger’s practical examples and helpful tips! Find links to all of the places you can find and follow Ginger below!
3-step plan for dealing with verbal offenses:
1. Ask heart-probing questions.
2. Teach kids to “put off” the old self. (Eph. 4:22-24) Set a kitchen timer!
3. Teach kids to “put on” the new self.
“The Practice Principle” — Require kids to practice! (Even older kids will benefit!)
