When my children were tiny, I didn’t give a lot of thought to what type of character traits I wanted them to have. My primary concern was that they were healthy and happy. My children are 18 and 22 now, and I think they have matured into reasonably good “almost” adults. As I think about the people they’ve matured to be, I realize that perhaps happy shouldn’t have been one of my primary goals. If I had it to do over, I would have spent more time helping them develop the traits they needed to be successful rather than simply happy.

Strong and Kind by Korie Robertson
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.
Strong and Kind by Korie Robertson is an inspiring book that is useful not only to those who are raising younger children but also to those who are trying to work on improving their positive character traits. While we may have more influence on our children when they are three than when they are 13 or 23, it is still possible to lead by example. Strong and Kind is both practical and doable even in today’s world. I have always admired the program Duck Dynasty, and I love that I got a deeper look into their lives and what they think is important. While Strong and Kind is a Christian parenting book, it is applicable to anyone who is trying to raise children that are strong, compassionate and hard working.
