    Getting to the Heart of Your Child’s Behavior – Guest author, Ginger Hubbard

    Recently, I was given the wonderful opportunity to read and possibly endorse a revolutionary, new book. I was so impressed with Ginger Hubbard’s I Can’t Believe You Just Said That!, that I wanted to recommend this book to all of you, and allow her to speak directly to you on an issue about which she and I both share deep conviction: getting to the heart of our children’s behavior. It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to my guest author, Ginger Hubbard.
