What are the character traits you value most? In her new book Strong and Kind: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed, Korie Robertson––New York Times bestselling author, star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty, wife of Duck Commander® CEO Willie Robertson, and mother of five–– invites you to consider the traits that are important to your family and then gives you strategies to instill them in your children. Korie maintains that the key to a healthy society is to raise children with good values, and the answers to good parenting lie within us.
“The plethora of parenting books can lead one to think that good parenting is nearly impossible,” Korie writes. “But being a good parent is really pretty simple. I’m not saying it’s easy, but I am saying it’s not as difficult as some of today’s parenting experts would lead you to believe. You can be confident of this: God has given you the ability to raise the children He has given you, and He has provided you with the best parenting book on the market, the Bible.”
With the signature warmth and candor we have come to expect and admire from A&E’s Duck Dynasty family, Strong and Kind cuts through the clutter to rediscover, unfold, and embrace the enduring wisdom that has guided parents for centuries. Written with Korie’s mother, Chrys Howard, and featuring additional stories and perspective from Korie’s husband, Willie, the book explores the most important character traits to nurture in children, and how to go about teaching them.
Strong and Kind details character building in three stair-step sections:
• Part One: Why Is Having Good Character So Important?
• Part Two: Identifying the Character Traits You Want to See in Your Children
• Part Three: How to Parent Kids of Character
“In the end it comes down to living these traits ourselves and doing things on a daily basis that imprint these values onto our children’s hearts and minds,” Korie writes. “It will take us being kind and strong and loving and compassionate. It requires giving our children consistent training, including both discipline and love, and living the life God intended for us confidently, intentionally, and creatively.”
Ultimately, Strong and Kind, filled with real life stories from Korie and Willie’s parenting journey, is a straightforward, gently instructive call to not just be the best parents we can be, but also the best people we can be.
