|Raising Duck Dynasty Kids|
Although the Robertson women are quite beautiful on the outside, they are also kind and seemingly beautiful on the inside too. Throughout the program episodes you can hear Phil Robertson repeating to his sons and grandsons how important it is to find a girl that has inner beauty. He says funny things like, "if she wears a lot of makeup she's likely hiding an ugly side." While this might make us giggle, it is really kind of true...What are we encouraging our daughters to do these days? look pretty or be pretty?
Purity Through Accountability
Another side splitter is the episode when John Luke brings home a date, thinking he is going to take her out in granddad's fishing boat...Much to his surprise Wise Man Phil tags along to drive the boat giving the two an embarrassing lecture on purity. Phil steps up to the plate and goes the extra mile, no matter how embarrassing it may seem to hold John Luke accountable and protect him from himself.
Work Ethic and Respecting Authority
Although most of the Duck Dynasty antics are centered around no work and all play, in reality they are hard workers and they teach their kids to be hard workers as well as respecting authority. It seems like there isn't an episode where one of the teenage grand kids aren't dropped off on Phil and Kay's doorstep to work. They cook, they clean, they hunt and then they do it again. I even remember a scene with one of the boys football buddy's working and what always strikes us about this is that they don't question what their grandpa Phil tells them to do. They just do it, if it is scary, dirty or painful, they do what they are told without question, even if it is for crazy Uncle Si.
Around the Dinner Table
Duck Dynasty ends each episode around a family dinner table, saying grace and thanking God for the blessings He has given them. The Robertson’s eat together, work together, pray together and play together. No matter how crazy they appear to be on TV, the reality is, they have built a successful family business and they still love each other enough to want to be in business together and still spend the rest of the day together.
