      Role Models is as much a philosophical manifesto as it is an utterly hilarious and shamelessly entertaining read.” — Philip Hoare, author of The Whale “John Waters has a great gift for appreciation—whether for toothless lesbian strippers in Baltimore or the most rarefied painters and writers of our day/5(40). What role models say and what they do is aligned and they continue to demonstrate the same positive values and behaviours on a consistent basis. When role models loss their credibility, it is often because their words and actions contradict each other (witness many people’s disillusionment with politicians).

    Young people are motivated by confident role models who have a clear purpose and accomplish their goals with hard work, courage, and resilience. They look to their role models for inspiration and to show them the way. So, how can you be a good role model?

Highlight the weird, the unusual, the unique. Ask questions. Start with a curious detail that can only be addressed by diving into the background of the subject and thoroughly exploring it. Pose a mystery at the beginning of the course.

Parenting well and properly involves being a positive influence on children, as well as their friends. This is a great article and a good roadmap for anyone with a dream. What I have found for so many of our young people today is that they lack the dream. We need to find more role models to inspire.

For example, they likely have 1) an ability to inspire others, 2) a clear set of values, 3) a commitment to community, 4) an acceptance of others, and 5) an ability to overcome obstacles.

If you want to be a good role model for your children, then the most important thing is for you to do as you say. Of course, some rules that apply to your kids may not apply to you — you may not have homework to finish or a 9 pm curfew — but it’s important to show them a good example of how to conduct yourself%(18).

However, it is my view that we actually learn more from the bad role models, for their misbehaviors hit us harder, and in a more visceral fashion that makes longer-lasting.

Avoiding these role models requires forming a strong relationship with the child. If the child respects you and values your presence, they will be more likely to hear what you say. Ensure that they realize there is a difference between public performance and private life%(17).
