About Strong and Kind:
Hardcover; 240 pages
Publisher: Harper Collins Christian Publishing (October 27, 2015) 

In her new book STRONG and KIND: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed, Korie Robertson - New York Times bestselling author, wife of Duck Commander® CEO Willie Robertson, star of A&E's Duck Dynasty, and mother of five - argues that developing good character in our children is the single most important thing we can do to help ensure they lead happy, healthy adult lives.  Robertson explores key traits and what they truly look like in action, asks readers to select the two traits that they hope to see most in their children, and shares hands-on ways for nurturing strength of character.  Written with her mother Chrys Howard and featuring stories and wisdom from husband Willie, STRONG and KIND cuts through the contemporary cacophony of parenting manuals to rediscover, unfold, and embrace the enduring wisdom that has guided the best parents for centuries.

My Review:
I couldn't help getting drawn into "Strong and Kind".  Korie Robertson's advice in the book not only follows Biblical teachings, but it is also how she and Willie have raised their children.  She makes a whole lot of sense in the message she's delivering through her book and, if you read it, you'll see what I mean.

I also love that Korie is 'real'.  She doesn't pretend to be a perfect parent, but she and Willie are doing a great job and it shows in the character of their children.  All the more reason to take the advice given!  I've already started, and I plan to continue, to incorporate Korie's teachings into the upbringing of my children.

Buy it!
Strong and Kind can currently be purchased for $17.41 on amazon.com.
