Book Description from the publisher:What Legacy Will You Pass Down To The Next Generation?
“After being a parent for twenty years, I have come to believe that the most important thing for parents to decide—more important than bottle or breastfeeding, more important than co-sleeping or sleep training, and even more important than whether to put your child in day care or become a stay-at-home parent—is what values are important to your family and how you will go about instilling those values in your children.”
In Strong and Kind 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.

I really enjoyed this book! Korie writes in such a style that it's as if we were sharing a conversation over mugs of coffee. Korie begins the book with asking the question, "What are two important character traits that you want to see in your children?" and this immediately grabbed me as I honestly could not answer right away, to just pick two. This is just the beginning of a wonderful, must-read parenting book. The book is divided into 3 sections, the first being about the importance of good characteristics. The second part addresses various character traits that are positive ones that hopefully my children will emulate. The third section really focuses on being a parent to a child of good character. I found this book very inspiring and thought-provoking; it is so encouraging to me as a mother and I loved how Korie shared her heart and experience and the stories and tidbits of wisdom shared by her mom and husband throughout the book as well. I highly recommend this book to all parents.
