Publisher's Description

It has never been more important to teach your children well.

Many parents want to see positive character traits in their children but wonder how to instill them. As stars of the hit reality show "Duck Dynasty", Korie and Willie Robertson receive loads of letters and messages from fans asking how did they raise such good kids. As Korie will tell you, it wasn’t easy, but it is possible.

A straightforward approach to parenting, Strong and Kind helps parents identify the character traits they want to see in their children along with the tools for putting them in place. For instance, strong means "resilient" and "sturdy." In the same way that muscles can be resilient and sturdy, our inner confidence can and should be too. Kindness to others always requires good manners, sharing, patience, forgiveness, and joyfulness, which are also character traits we want our children to possess. Then there’s treating others with respect and love, which is the second greatest command.

"Strong and Kind also covers the ways parents can implement these positive traits. Korie identifies nine specific character traits that parents will want to focus in on with their kids. Besides strong and kind they include: self-control, honesty, loyalty, humility, compassion, patience, and being joyful. And by modeling the best behavior, parents will increase the chances of their kids catching on. Ultimately, the stars of "Duck Dynasty" recommend you do what they do at the end of every episode: hand your children over to God’s loving arms in prayer every day.

    Strong and Kind and Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed, by Korie Robertson with Chrys Howard is a wonderful book. It also includes Stories and Wisdom from Willie Robertson.

    Korie has written this book because she believes that What America needs today are parents who dont just say they value these virtues but who live them and passionately and boldly teach them to their children. She begins the book by explaining that she was asked a question as a young mother, What are two important character traits that you want to see in your children? She answered strong and kind. This book helps parents to understand why it is important to teach children Biblical character traits. In addition to strong and kind, she includes self-control, honesty, compassion, patience, joyfulness, loyalty, and humility.

    This is a wonderful book with practical advice from parents who have a wealth of experience. Their willingness to share these experiences in order to assist other parents in instilling Biblical values in their children is commendable. I especially liked the section on honesty, which included this quote: We must train our children to be honest and teach them that dishonesty brings painful consequences. Being honest might make us uncomfortable for a few minutes, but it leads to much greater rewards.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is attempting to influence children toward Biblical character traits.

    If you are looking for an encouraging book on parenting, I highly recommend purchasing this book. Korie Robertson and her mother have written a great book on character qualities any parent would want their children to possess. There are nine specific traits included, then there are ways to carry these out in parenting. As a mom of three boys, I know how hard it can be to be a parent, but I am thankful for resources like this book. I hope I can do as good a job raising my children as this book suggests!

    If you have kids (or if you are planning to have kids), I would highly, highly recommend this book to read! Unlike other parenting books, this one isn't filled with big psychological words or medical jargon but rather it is filled with real life experiences, personal stories you can easily relate to, and the best parenting guidebook of all, the Bible.

    In this book Korie details Strong & Kind, the two character traits that she and Willie decided they wanted to pass on to their children. They agreed while their children was young that they wanted them to be strong to endure in this world and to be kindhearted people.

    And in that choice came the realization that you cannot want to develop those traits in your children without developing & living them out yourself. It is ever so important to make sure that whatever character trait you choose to develop in your children that you LIVE THEM.

    The book is awesome because it doesn't just focus on those two character traits but many character traits and the living those traits out as parents. Because as most of parents have realized its a "monkey see monkey do" world not a "monkey say monkey do" world.

    Can a TV personality actually have anything significant to say about child rearing? Actually, Korie Robertson can. She has many insightful things to say from her experience raising her five children.

    As a young mother, Korie was in a Bible study that asked what two character traits she would want to see in her children. Her answer was strong and kind. Those aren't the only two qualities she wanted her family to possess, just the two traits she thought would serve her children well in this sometimes hard and unkind world.

    Talk the talk, AND walk the talk.

    Korie is quick to point out that the Bible is the primary source both she, and husband Willie, turn to for guidance with their family. In fact, the Bible is what they look to for every aspect in their lives. This couple strives to make sure they themselves demonstrate the same traits they are trying to instill in their children. There is no better example of their importance than for the children to see their parents living out those qualities, especially when it is hard to do.

    The author states that both parents must present a united front when training and disciplining their family. That doesn't mean they don't ever disagree with each other, but they save those discussions for times when it is just the two of them.

    Ever try putting a square peg in a round hole?

    The Robertson's emphasize that God made each of us with different personalities. When He entrusts a child to our care, it will be easier for all concerned to work with the style God gave that individual, instead of pushing against it. This doesn't mean a child gets a "pass" on learning certain traits, or behaviors. The expectation is still there, just the way of learning may need to be adjusted for each family member.

    Don't be surprised if a technique that worked wonderfully on one or more of your children, fails miserably with another child. One family member may respond better to a gentle touch, another responds well to a very regimented approach, and so on. Know your child, their strong points, as well as, weak ones, and that information will help you plan the best way to teach them. Parents need to be prepared to discover their child's personality may be nothing like theirs. Korie also found child rearing works best when it is geared towards the positive, and not the negative--so accentuate the positive.

    Keep your ducks in a row!

    Korie found that being flexible in her parenting style, and being willing to switch to a different method when something isn't working, stood her in good stead many times. She gave examples about her own children that demonstrate this. Most of all, make sure your child feels loved by both their parents. This will go a long way towards making a child feel secure. So will the knowledge that their parents love each other.

    Strong and Kind has lots of great information. It is not just a "fluffy" book written by a well-known personality. The ideas the couple used for raising their children make a lot of sense. I especially like that the family makes the Bible the center of all they do. Willie added his input in some of the chapters, so it was interesting to hear his take on the different aspects of child training. I enjoyed the different stories Korie included about her children, along with contributions from Chrys Howard, Korie's mom. The information in this 5-star book is down-to-earth, and very helpful. I highly recommend it to anyone with children.

    Korie is the wife of Willie Robertson, well-known CEO of Duck Commander. The couple both appear in their family's hit reality show, Duck Dynasty.
