by Korie Robertson (Author), Chrys Howard (Contributor), Willie Robertson (Contributor)
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 straight-forward, 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, 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. Flap Copy: 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.'. 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.
