No joke, parenting is THE hardest job on the planet. None of us ever feel like we're doing it right, we really just do the best we can and leave the rest up to God. But that's the beauty of the divine calling that God has place on all of us as parents, He really does the rest once we've put our children around the right people and helped them find their own relationships with him. I have read many parenting books over the years and when I was asked to review Strong and Kind by Korie Robertson I was so excited. One, because I love a good Christian parenting book and two because I just love Korie Robertson and her whole family. I really respect her as a parent and think her daughter, Sadie, is one of the best role models for young girls! I love how she reminds us to be intentional with our children in order to instill these traits in them as adults.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
This book isn't written like it's from someone that knows it all, it is really like you're sitting on the front porch sharing parenting advice with Korie, herself. Strong and Kind helps you, as a parent, identify the character traits you want to see in your children and gives you the tools to put them in place. Besides strength and kindness other character traits include:
- Self Control
