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.

Top of the list Parenting/Family book!

After reading a multitude of parenting/family books in my life, I found such profound wisdom in the simplicity of truth in this one. There is so much unconditional love and perseverance in this family, such joy, forgiveness, and intentionality. I will be listening to this again and again!

Good, honest wisdom

I honestly downloaded this book out of curiosity of what they had to say. I wish their picture wasn’t in the cover, I’m sure it sells more books but to me it gives it a cheesy celebrity feel... and I say that because it honestly one of the best parenting books I’ve read... and I will recommend it, but I feel like I’ll have to use a disclaimer that it’s not a cheesy celebrity book, but there are real nuggets to ponder.

God bless you

Thank you for these blessed words that come from the love book of God and your own family experiences. I am a step mom and this helped me to become a better mom. Please pray for my son Joseph and his mom Dolores Veronica. May the creator God find a way for all of us to raise up Joseph strong and kind. Thank you

Kind regards,
