Heroes: Are Our Kids Worshipping the Right Ones?

Posted by   + Show Post

We had celebrity role models when we were kids, so when we see kids doing the same thing, how concerned should we be about the people they choose to idolize?

That's great!!

Quoting goddess99:

My dd has also mentioned his behavior lately and has said very similar to what your dd said.

Quoting Jukebox_Jenny: DD8 really liked Justin Bieber until she found out about his recent poor behavior. Then she informed that, "Well, I guess I don't need to like HIM anymore." I was very proud of her judgement.

She doesn't really idolize anyone. She's only 6.

Yes, we should be concerned with who they idolize.  I don't remember having any real "heroes" when I was a teenager, just celebrities that I thought were cute.  >_<

My kids are pretty grounded so I'm not overly concerned with them worshipping anyone. My daughter actually has disdain for celebrity worship.

I try not to let my people look up to famous people. Instead I try to make them look at local role models. People in our church or people we know who are serving our country :)

My children don't idolize actors or singers; they Idolize the people who deserve it like fireman and service men. :)
