Strong and KindStrong and Kind: and Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed by Korie Robertson

Book Description: Many parents want to see positive character traits in their children but wonder how to instill them. As stars of the hit reality-TV show Duck Dynasty, Korie and Willie Robertson receive loads of letters and messages from fans asking how they’ve raised such good kids. As they will tell you, “it isn’t always easy, but raising kids with good character is possible.”

A straightforward, practical approach to parenting, Strong and Kind helps you identify the character traits you want to see in your children and gives you the tools for putting them in place. Besides strength and kindness other character traits include:

  • Self-Control
  • Honesty
  • Compassion
  • Patience
  • Joyfulness
  • Loyalty
  • Humility

By modeling positive traits, with confidence, consistency, creativity, unity, and in truth and love, you can increase the chances of your kids catching on. At the end of the day, the Duck Dynasty stars say the most important thing you can do for your children is what they do at the end of every episode: hand them over to God in prayer.

Book Review: I really enjoyed reading Strong and Kind: and Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed by Korie Robertson. From the beginning the author explained the importance of setting character traits for your children and used examples from her own family to enhance my understanding. I was midway through the book and already praying on what traits I valued in my own children. It’s not too late to begin implementing the ideas. Read through the different traits and select two that you’d like to rank at the top of your family values.

Korie and Willie selected strength and kindness for their own kids using the Bible as their family handbook. After reading this book TWICE it was easy for me to understand how this family is deeply connected as a unit. Each chapter ends with “Willie’s Words” as he contributes his own experiences from a father’s perspective. It’s enjoyable to read from beginning to end! I hope Korie will continue writing more books!

This would be a great gift for a baby shower, newborn celebration, or adoption party. Highly recommended!

My Book Rating: 5/5
