A role model is someone whose behavior is imitated by others. Of course, there are good role models and bad role models. There is even the counterintuitive anti-role model, like Lindsey Lohan, who behaves so badly that s/he serves as a good example of what NOT to do.

While there is some variation in every parent's definition of what it means to be a good person, listen to my show for the following 7 characteristics that must remain constant in a role model.  

You will hear from kids, regarding who their role model is and why they chose that person to be their role model.

Listen to parents as they call in their opinions on the influences and the power of a role model.
