Two years ago, my older son and husband came with me to go to Bayside Community Church, located in Granite Bay, CA. My husband Justen attended his “home” church, Bayside Church, before he met me at the different place. We were excited to watch a fabulous woman who was in the Duck Dynasty show on the stage at the church, Korie Robertson! She is also the office manager in Duck Commander. She lectured about her book: Strong and Kind. My husband and I talked about purchasing this book so we could read this book. I remember that seeing her at the church was such an awesome feeling.
Book Review: Strong and Kind by Korie Robertson
Korie Robertson wrote the book, Strong and Kind, about raising kids of Character. Korie wanted us to understand what our children need to succeed through the character traits. We, as Christian parents, want to seek God’s wisdom and see the possible, positive character traits in our children, but we need to know how to teach them grow a better strong and kind characters. (Proverbs 22:6)
By showing the character traits, I believe that the creativity and confidence in truth and love work together through God’s grace and wisdom. God knows that our children are imperfect but they continue to learn how to deal with all the character traits. Raising my two sons with positive characters is hugely possible because my husband and I have trained our sons very well while sharing God’s word and our real-life experiences. We cannot control our sons as well as they cannot control us back because we know only God can possibly control us all the way. Without training or teaching our sons, their lives would have been messed up. It’s our job to help and explain every detail to our sons and make sure they are responsible for their own choices and decisions. In fact, I see that our two adult sons have bad or good choices (or decisions) no matter what happens, God takes care of their problems. As a mother, I keep encouraging them to give their problems to God so they can rest without worrying too much about things that cannot be changed because God would do anything to fight this for them. I believe that God can change things in the future. As Christian parents, we love them unconditionally and we always forgive each other as well as God forgives. However, my husband and I know that raising our sons never be easy but training them well is the most important key to be good parent.
I do not see anything that contradicts God’s word in this book. Truthfully, this book is very amazing. I am aware of that some readers share their negative opinions about this book. I cannot able to speak for them. Respectfully, this is the best discipline for kids book that I’ve ever seen.
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
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. ~ Amazon Product Description
