  • oops, maybe a fictional character like Superman. Those don't disappoint and represent honor and good.

  • My mom is my role model and I'd absolutely pick her to be a role model for my child. She's a great mom and has been my whole life. She's a great Christian woman and she tirelessly took care of my dad the last 3 years of his life as he was slowly fading away due to kidney failure. She was his care taker, nurse, wife, love of his life- everything for him. What more could you ask out of a role model?

  • For right now, its my mom. I am going through the same thing she went through, raising 3 kids under 3. It keeps me sane most the time. My role model changes with my situation though!

  • My Mom, she has always been a wonderful mother and person. She never graduated high school, but always provided for us. She even ran her own bussiness before she retired. She is a wonderful Grandma too. She had to overcome a lot of obsticles, but she has made it!

  • My grandmother is my role model. Raised 6 children with little to no personal time (that came after they were grown and out of the house), raised them to believe in God, the Bible, and the importance of family first. I'd love to have her as a role model for my own children.

  • My Dad is my role model. He has been through a lot in life but he always picks himself back up and makes his way back to the top. He taught me that your word is your bond and if you don't have your word then you have nothing left in life. That has always made a huge impact on me. He taught me about saving money and getting the most for my money. He taught me that I would appreciate things more if I had to earn them and though at the time I didn't think it was fair, as an adult I am so glad that he taught me that lesson.

    I would love for him to be a role model for my Children. I try to teach them the same things that my Dad taught me.

  • My role models are Jesus Christ and all the Saints. I would most definitely choose these to be role models for my children and I encourage them to do so. You are all very lucky to have parents who were good role models, unfortunately I would not want my parents to be role models for my children.
