This is a very easy book to read. I personally believe the stories she shares of her family makes this book. After watching Duck Dynasty since it came out (a favorite of our family), we feel as if we know them on a personal level. Korie is humble and honest. She uses her parenting fails and successes to help a fellow parent walk down this treacherous road. In the first, probably quarter, of the book, there is a beautiful layout of each of her kids from various stages of their lives. It also highlights her and Willie…..his dimples…..specatular 🙂
I have highlighted, marked, and starred several key phrases that I want to remember in raising my own kids…and finding those 2 traits….she choose Strong and Kind. I choose Strong and Honest but I want my kids to have all of those character traits. This is a good book to add to my library and to pull down in counseling sessions with clients and when I’m about to pull my hair out with my own kids.

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.
