A Good Role Model

The question for the child is not “Do I want to be good?” but “Whom do I want to be like?”  Thought to be by Bruno Bettelheim.

Parents and grandparents today our children look up to sports stars and movie celebrities as role models..  Admittedly, some of these people are worthy role models but too often they are not.  It is time to teach our children what a real hero is like..  Let’s live our lives so more of our kids want to be like us.  The home is the first teacher so let’s take that responsibility seriously.
