Ep. 95 : Taming Your Child’s Tongue with Ginger Hubbard

Ginger Hubbard is a best-selling author and sought-after speaker, and her early books, “Don’t Make me Count to Three” and “I Can’t Believe You Just Said That!” shaped my early parenting years.  It is so great to have her on the Podcast 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 Ginger’s practical examples and helpful tips!  Be sure to see show notes for links to her books, website, and brand new podcast!

About Monica Swanson

My husband Dave and I have been living in Hawaii for nearly 18 years. We arrived on the island with one son, and have had 3 more since. We moved to Oahu for my husband’s (3-year) medical residency training, and never left. (That seems to happen a lot around here.) We live on the North Shore on a hill in the country overlooking the “7 Mile miracle” — 7 miles of some of the best surfing beaches in the world. We grow tropical fruits, and in between surf sessions, I homeschool my 4 boys. Actually just 3 now — our oldest just took the long-dreaded-but-obviously-healthy-launch to Westmont College in Santa Barbara, Ca. I’m thrilled to report that he is very happy and adjusting well. We’re all trying to do the same.
