Strong and Kind Book Review Plus Giveaway

As a parent who wasn’t raised up with my parents around for various reasons, I’m always reading as many parenting books as I can get my hands on. I was pleased to work with Flyby Promotions again in doing this book review and giveaway in exchange for an honest review. Strong and Kind and Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed  by Korie Robertson with Chrys Howard was an easy parenting book to read.

About the book: 

Hardcover; 240 pages
Publisher: Harper Collins Christian Publishing (October 27, 2015)
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.

My Review of Strong and Kind:

Reading Strong and Kind is like having a cup of coffee with Korie and Willie while listening to their wisdom from twenty years of parenting. The author didn’t fill it with boring facts or statistics. Nor did she come across as a Ms. KnowItAll in her advice. They came across a down home country folks just sharing their hearts on the matter of raising our kids to be upstanding citizens in this crazy world we’re living in. In many ways, it felt like they were preaching to the choir.

However, it was still nice to see them making such a bold stand for teaching kids about God’s love. Throughout their lives, they have strived to create a Christian home for their kids. It shows in their show Duck Dynasty. I wish Netflix would get more of their show on their list of shows to watch.
