Strong and Kind

Strong and Kind
And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed

By Korie Robertson, with Chrys Howard. Contributions by Willie Robertson 
Published by Thomas Nelson

I'll be honest, this book is much more than I expected. It's good, solid common sense and worthy advice. It would be fabulous required reading for all parents!

My favorite chapters are 3 and 4 and they were also what really hooked me. I found it was an entertaining read and not just another preach how-to. It's full of personal examples, and Kori writes to us not "at us". This would be a great gift book and a fabulous support to your own  parenting journey. If only we all were surrounded by people with high caliber character! But we aren't these days and so we have books...this is one of the good ones.

Book Description

What Legacy Will You Pass Down To The Next Generation?
“After being a parent for twenty years, I have come to believe that the most important thing for parents to decide—more important than bottle or breastfeeding, more important than co-sleeping or sleep training, and even more important than whether to put your child in day care or become a stay-at-home parent—is what values are important to your family and how you will go about instilling those values in your children.”
In Strong and Kind Korie Robertson—with the help of her mom, Chrys Howard, and with insights and stories from her husband, Willie—introduces nine character traits that children need in order to lead a successful life. And though there are no perfect parents or perfect children, Korie shares principles—based on biblical wisdom and time-tested practices—that will help you parent your own one-of-a-kind child.
