In Strong and Kind: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed, Korie Robertson—with the help of her mom, Chrys Howard, and with insights and stories from her husband, Willie—introduces nine character traits that children need in order to lead a successful life. And though there are no perfect parents or perfect children, Korie shares principles—based on biblical wisdom and time-tested practices—that will help you parent your own one-of-a-kind child.
What are the character traits you value most? In Korie’s new book Strong and Kind, Korie Robertson invites readers to consider the traits important to our families and provides the strategies to teach your children. Korie shares her belief that raising children with good values will maintain the key to a healthy society is to raise children with good values. She reminds us that the answers to good parenting lie within each of us.
“The plethora of parenting books can lead one to think that good parenting is nearly impossible,” Korie writes. “But being a good parent is really pretty simple. I’m not saying it’s easy, but I am saying it’s not as difficult as some of today’s parenting experts would lead you to believe. You can be confident of this: God has given you the ability to raise the children He has given you, and He has provided you with the best parenting book on the market, the Bible.”
Korie shares with warmth and candor how to rediscover, unfold, and embrace the enduring wisdom that has guided parents for centuries. Tthe book explores the most important character traits to nurture in children – strong, kind, self-controlled, honest, compassionate, patient, joyful, loyal and humble – and how to go about teaching them. In Strong and Kind, Korie details character building in three stair-step sections:
• Part One: Why Is Having Good Character So Important?
• Part Two: Identifying the Character Traits You Want to See in Your Children
• Part Three: How to Parent Kids of Character
“In the end it comes down to living these traits ourselves and doing things on a daily basis that imprint these values onto our children’s hearts and minds,” Korie writes. “It will take us being kind and strong and loving and compassionate. It requires giving our children consistent training, including both discipline and love, and living the life God intended for us confidently, intentionally, and creatively.”
Ultimately, Strong and Kind, filled with real life stories from Korie and Willie’s parenting journey, is a straightforward, gently instructive call to not just be the best parents we can be, but also the best people we can be.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.
