Strong and Kind by Korie Robertson with Chrys Howard
They chose Strong as the first, because life will always deal you some hardships. It's how we respond to them that makes all the difference. We must teach our children to handle things in stride and to be able to handle whatever comes our way. We must also teach them that our strength does not come from us alone, but from God.
Kind was the second attribute they chose because they wanted their children to treat others with kindness and respect. They wanted them to learn the importance of serving others and giving to the less fortunate. This is one of the reasons they take their children on mission trips to help those who are poverty stricken and destitute.
Korie goes on to explain many other character traits which are important in raising a child. It is up to the parents to decide which traits to focus on, and to decide which are best for their family. I loved this book and I would highly recommend it to others!
