Strong and Kind

I'm sure you've heard of Duck Dynasty, right?!?!?  :)  Well, the myriad of books that have come out of that tv show has just been fun to watch - from a librarian's perspective.  Korie Robertson's Strong and Kind is no exception. This book is all about determining what you want to see in your child's life character-wise and then parenting to build those traits.  I think, as a parent, that it is key to take time to evaluate what you want to see in your children and I'm not sure we encourage that enough.  Korie Robertson's book encourages you to take that time - time to purposefully plan for your children.  And then she gives creative ways to parent to build children of character.  I thoroughly enjoyed Korie's insight and the tidbits that Willie adds as well.  The combination of the two creates a thought-provoking parenting book.

About the book: 
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.
