Where are they? Is it healthy for our kids to be watching Serena threaten a line judge? Tiger Woods throwing his clubs around when he doesn't sink a puttt? Joe Wilson calling our president a liar? Kanya West embarrassing himself and everyone else? Chris Brown smacking his girlfriend around? Steroids running wild in sports! And so many more......not good my friends not good.
These people in the public eye need to wake up and be thankful for all they have and be a better role model. When they are in the eye of the camera, they need to be the gentleman or lady I would hope their parents taught them to be.
You have the world by the "you know what" why would you jeopardize loosing it all?
Where are our role models?
good points. today's role model is sensationalism. many kids worship their ipod, their iphone or any of the latest greatest gadgets that can be created. this, of course, goes back to parenting. it would be interesting to see where parents rank in a nationwide survey of children and their take on role models.
All this chaos, indecency and offensiveness are the fruits of Freemasonry and Zionism. The founding fathers of USA belonged to Freemasonry or any other esoteric organizations. The media in under their control. They have turned the ordianry masses in monsters of crimes and indecency that according to them can only be controlled by the mostrous system = New World Order by the monster = Antichrist = Lucifer = One eyed Dajjal. Look at the following.
Ah, c'mon. We've had rotten people from Day One, and they didn't exactly need Freemasons or any other high falutin' secret rootin' tootin' society to be rotten. One of our neighbors got caught in the act by my Dad's hired hand--the guy was slow coming up from the barn, and it turned out he was romancing a pinto mare quite vigorously. Neither man--the hired hand or the rear end rider--even knew how to SPELL Freemason.
Give it a break.
If you need somebody else but yourself to be a role model to your kids, don't be surprised with what you get
BAM! Once again, Misha, you have hit the nail on the head.
My kids had 2 roles models in there lives, a Mother and Father who loved them and did their best to raise them....they turned out great! I'm thinking of the kids who didn't and don't have that and do look up to others for guidance. I just hope it isn't the ones I listed! Good point though....
We can not ban TV, Movies or school education on the children. The point is these worthless pagan dogmas of super heros and evolution deviated most of the innocent children from some real things, the real life problems and how to resolve them as humans not as any mutated rubbish kind of thing.
Ah the pirate Misha speaks,with split tongue.LOL
well those people hardly qualify as role models. parents should be the child's role models, followed by their teachers, and the occasional police officer or other helpful member of the community. the best way for children not to be influenced by people like that when they act like big babies is to make a clear definition between real authority figures and celebrities.
I agree that it would be better if people in the position of being a potential role models for kids would do themselves, their own dignity, and everyone else a service if they didn't make a public display of what jerks they are.
Having said that, though, I still, compared to other cultures and other times in history, we're still fortunate if the biggest thing people are talking about at water coolers is some idiot making a fool of him/herself.
Kanye West was on Jay Leno's show the next night, crying when Leno brought up his deceased mother. This individual has "issues", and I don't think those "issues" involve being a Freemason.
I am glad my own kids didn't get into idolizing stars while in their teens but they do that now though I remind them ...make sure you keep your feet on the ground and in the REAL world nevermind them being stars, it's just a business
I think my kids role-model should be someone real with real beliefs and principles.
I can tell you exactly where they are when you can tell me where the "family" is. There are no thoughts to being home and taking care of those children that we bring here.
Spending time with them and providing them with more than electronic toys, phones and television can give them the guidance they need to make the right choices.
Role models can't exist when there are no morals!
This sounds just like me. My role in life is a little clearer. *turns off her Marilyn Manson CD*
No, but as Misha and other say...it comes down to the parents.
Parents push off too much blame on outer sources.
Why did the children have to rely on these poor role models in the first place?
Was mum and dad not around and not doing an adequate job so some entertainer replaced them?
I agree, role models that are decent are in short supply...same goes for parents as good role models.
PS-It's a good thing I'm not having kids.
The big problem is that we ascribe qualities to people that they might not possess because they are engaged in a certain line of work. Not all cops are just and honest people, not all athletes believe in fair play and not all teachers teach for the sake of their students.
Working with my kids, I had a horrible time getting them to understand that the content of a person's character was shown by their actions, not what they said. Those of my kids who could understand that did much better in their treatment because they were not disappointed nearly as much as those who believed everything they heard. The kids who "got it" also did much better with meeting their treatment goals and succeeding when the left our facility.

Okay, to Earnest...If you looked at the whole "religion" thing as trying to find a role model, would it seem unreasonable to you?(speaking in a broad view, with no specific religion addressed)
