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.

I was recently given the opportunity to review Korie Robertson’s new book, STRONG and KIND. It’s a pretty neat little book. However, I should confess that I have never watched the Robertson family show, Duck Dynasty. This is an important confession, because I am sure if I was a devoted follower, I would have totally different views on this book. Why? Because Korie referred to the show a lot. She wrote the book under the assumption that everyone reading the book had seen it. I haven’t (not a single episode). Not because I don’t like the Robertson’s, I just don’t watch T.V. (Crazy, right?). Anyway, if I had seen the show, I would have already known a ton about Korie’s family and personality.
All that said, I still think this was a really neat parenting book. Korie didn’t say, do this or don’t do that. She talked about different traits and how we impart them to our children. I loved it!
Korie talked about how we should look at who we want our kids to become, and then model that in our own lives. That basis alone makes this one of the best parenting books ever. If you know who Korie Robertson is and if you have ever seen her show, you will love this book. If you are like me and haven’t seen her show, then I still think it is a great read.
I will add that Korie seems to have a very bold personality. She is very firm in her beliefs and a few statements she made rubbed me the wrong way. They were firmly worded opinions, one I agreed with but still was taken aback by the wording she used. Another I could see her point, but she worded it very harshly. We all have opinions we feel strongly about, I just found it ironic that in a book about kindness, she didn’t choose to word her thoughts with kindness.
The other down side to this book was that the pages seemed super thin. If you are like me and love to highlight, I recommend using a gel highlighter (that’s what I did). And I did highlight a BUNCH.
