As many of you know, I love to read books! I am a book nerd and love it because I have also an 11 year old who is too. As a Christian family we try to teach Olivia to listen to us and to grow with her lessons. Now that we are doing homeschool and we have just joined a Christian homeschool Co-Op, it’s nice to be able to read books that will help Olivia grow stronger and still be kind to those around her. So many tweens go through a stage of where they don’t show kindness to others and I know for a fact that in a lot of the public middle schools around here it’s kind of scary! The words that are used by other children can hurt your loved ones and sometimes bullying can happen too. So when I was asked to review this book by Korie Robertson (Duck Dynasty) I jumped on the opportunity. I fell in love with the book, “Strong and Kind” by Korie and fell in love with the encouragement that she gives in the book. I will say I will be using those ideas and thoughts of while I am raising Olivia. I want her to be just as respectful as I was and still be strong as a teen and as she becomes a woman.
Here is more information on the book by Korie Robertson:
In her new book STRONG and KIND: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed, Korie Robertson – New York Times bestselling author, wife of Duck Commander® CEO Willie Robertson, star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty, and mother of five – argues that developing good character in our children is the single most important thing we can do to help ensure they lead happy, healthy adult lives. Robertson explores key traits and what they truly look like in action, asks readers to select the two traits that they hope to see most in their children, and shares hands-on ways for nurturing strength of character. Written with her mother Chrys Howard and featuring stories and wisdom from husband Willie, STRONG and KIND cuts through the contemporary cacophony of parenting manuals to rediscover, unfold, and embrace the enduring wisdom that has guided the best parents for centuries.
