It has never been more important to teach your children well. Many parents want to see positive character traits in their children but wonder how to instill them. As stars of the hit reality show "Duck Dynasty", Korie and Willie Robertson receive loads of letters and messages from fans asking how did they raise such good kids. As Korie will tell you, it wasn't easy, but it is possible. A straightforward approach to parenting, Strong and Kind helps parents identify the character traits they want to see in their children along with the tools for putting them in place. For instance, strong means "resilient" and "sturdy." In the same way that muscles can be resilient and sturdy, our inner confidence can and should be too. Kindness to others always requires good manners, sharing, patience, forgiveness, and joyfulness, which are also character traits we want our children to possess. Then there's treating others with respect and love, which is the second greatest command. "Strong and Kind also covers the ways parents can implement these positive traits. Korie identifies nine specific character traits that parents will want to focus in on with their kids. Besides strong and kind they include: self-control, honesty, loyalty, humility, compassion, patience, and being joyful. And by modeling the best behavior, parents will increase the chances of their kids catching on. Ultimately, the stars of "Duck Dynasty" recommend you do what they do at the end of every episode: hand your children over to God's loving arms in prayer every day.
