I will have to preface this by saying I have never watched an episode of Duck Dynasty. I have read things here and there about their family, and it has been interesting finding out info about them. I was drawn to the topic of the book because as I watch my girls grow up, I realize there is only a small window of time for me to impress upon them, not just by telling them, but by showing them as well, the traits I think are important. I love watching them discover who they are more and more each day, and I’m learning that some of who they are is not who I am…i.e. One certain girl loves to be with people pretty much all the time. She can’t be alone. That is definitely not me. Another certain girl can talk all the day long if she didn’t have a book in her hand. The book part is me, but definitely NOT the non-stop talking part…at least, I don’t think… :p And then there are so many messages that the world sends that aren’t always so great, especially in this age of technology and social media.

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. – Korie Robertson

In Strong and Kind: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed, Korie Robertson, mother of five, discusses how developing good character in our kids the most important thing we can do to help them lead happy, healthy adult lives. Among the extremes of parenting that I read about all over media, I find Korie’s book refreshing because there seems to be a balance of a present parent who is not overbearing but is also not overly lenient.
