Publisher's Summary

"It's never been more important to teach your children well. What America needs today are parents who don't just s ay 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.

Best parenting book I've ever read!

This book is full of wisdom and excellent strategies to help people on their parenting journey. Korie & Willie are a joy to listen to and it feels like you're just having a conversation with them while you listen.

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.

LOOOVE

So grateful for people that stop and take the time to share in their wisdom! Even though I have a teenager and a special needs son that’s 11, so much of this is how I’ve tried to raise them but it’s comforting, inspiring and just reaffirms the goals, morals, and values I hope to instill in these future adults! 🤍🙏🏻

Touching and Inspiring

I am a father of 3 children all under the age of 7. I’ve really been focusing on being an intentional dad and being my best for my family. This book really was a treat and fell right into my current aspirations of being all I can be. I loved willies additions in the end of the chapters and found it to be so soothing and entertaining on top of being fully of great content. Great job from a great family.

inspiring

I couldn't stop listening to this book! it has made me think of so many different things that I slack on as a parent and Christian but it also told me how to work on these things without being overwhelmed. such a good listen and I love she reads it herself with her husband. I found many answers to questions that I've had lately in life and some I didnt even know I needed. i love that many of the chapters had personal experiences with the lesson. god bless this family. I hope to read a new book soon from kory.
