Publisher's Summary

"It's never been more important to teach your children well. What America needs today are parents who don't just say they value these virtues but who live them and passionately and boldly teach them to their children. It's up to me and you and every parent in America to make the necessary changes to give our children the opportunity to change the world. We do that by instilling good character traits in them so that they will be capable of being the adults our world needs." (Korie Robertson)

Many parents want to see positive character traits in their children but wonder how to instill them. As stars of the hit reality TV show Duck Dynasty, Korie and Willie Robertson receive loads of letters and messages from fans asking how they've raised such good kids. As they will tell you, "It isn't always easy, but raising kids with good character is possible".

A straightforward, practical approach to parenting, Strong and Kind helps you identify the character traits you want to see in your children and gives you the tools for putting them in place. Besides strength and kindness, other character traits include:

  • Self-control
  • Honesty
  • Compassion
  • Patience
  • Joyfulness
  • Loyalty
  • Humility

By modeling positive traits with confidence, consistency, creativity, and unity and in truth and love, you can increase the chances of your kids catching on. At the end of the day, the Duck Dynasty stars say the most important thing you can do for your children is what they do at the end of every episode: Hand them over to God in prayer.

Pleasantly surprised

If you could sum up Strong and Kind in three words, what would they be?

This is so much more than a parenting book - it is a life skills book.

What about Korie Robertson and Willie Robertson ’s performance did you like?

I love their compassion and humility, mixed with humor and examples of life. They don't claim to know it all, and are so encouraging.

Any additional comments?

I have to admit, that I was not expecting very much, I thought it would be the same stuff you have already heard - but I felt this was very well thought out, and covered so many ideas, and gave personal examples of ways that worked and ways that were failures - yet you can hear their heart for God and the family! I will listen to the book again, there is so much to take in.

Wonderful (with a small downside)

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would. I think all parents love the idea of having children raised with character. And while this book is faith based, the character traits are not, making this book something for everyone of any belief to enjoy.

What about Korie Robertson and Willie Robertson ’s performance did you like?

Since they are stars of a hit TV show it was nice to put a face to the voice. This helps even more to convey what they are saying because you can feel their energy and joy as they read, because we know how they are in the TV world.

What did you learn from Strong and Kind that you would use in your daily life?

That every moment has a teachable moment, and that little moments of intention can help raise a child with character traits we wish to see.

Any additional comments?

Most audio books I have listened to give a small pause between chapters. I found that in this book there is no pause, and it goes right into the next chapter. It's not a huge deal, just something that you might find a little annoying.
