Top Ten Best Role Models for Kids
The Top Ten
Taylor is a good role model she teaches little kids to stand up for bullying in her song "Mean"
Children, you need to think of people who are truly role models in your life. Not a celebrity. There are more than 1000's of people who donate money to charities and even more than she does. There people who actually do physically donate their time, actually working in the charities. That is not all that makes a role model. Just because you can relate to her songs that's not what makes a role model also. Think! There are people who teach you more than she will ever teach you. Important things that shape you lot's more, and you should recognize them and respect them. They are the important role models. But your far to young to realize that yet, who will actually influence your life and it won't be a celebrity! Lastly, your parents brought you into this world and will teach you more than any celebrity. Have some respect and common sense. If you have "not so good" parents than look into your own community for role models not a celebrity. You will learn later in life who your ...more
She use to donate money to charities under her friends' name so the media wouldn't know
I just like herV 161 Comments
Jesus is historically the most influential character. He came to save the world but was hated. He tried to correct the evil politics of the day but was persecuted. He did not bow down to false authority because he knew true authority was within him drawn from God. Now God is real mentor material. Jesus loved unconditionally but tried to teach a better pathway for us. Jesus healed the sick, loved the unlovely, helped the poor and stood in the way of death for us so that we could have eternal life. Look up John 3:16 in the new testament of your bible. That's right - smart kids know to dodge the dodgy mentors listed and read various wisdoms - so get your hands on a bible and be cool. After all a role model has to have self control and Jesus was walking talking self control.
That is so true if he where to come again I would give my life for him
Jesus, should be everybody's role model!
He is loving and kind

Jackie is also one of the best role models for ADULTS.
Humble, talented and charitable, Jackie is great!
Lots of caring parents who love their children take them to see Jackie Evancho. Jackie loves children and she embodies many of the good qualities that parents would like their children to have: respect for others, consideration of others, determination, independence, zest for life and positive behavior. Jackie does not shy away from her responsibility to be a role model to young people and encourages children to pursue their dreams. - BobG
Wonderful role model for ALL humans. Beautiful, talented, kind, etc etc!V 28 Comments
Emma is an inspiration to us all... she became one of the most successful young actresses, she graduated with honors at Ivy, she became a UN ambassador, she stood up for what she believed was right... all at the young age of twenty-four! Emma is amazing at pushing past negativity and criticism and strives to do her best and exceed expectations. She's a really great person who fights for what she believes in!
She is a fantastic human being. 'enough said!
She is the most beautiful actress I know and she values her education
I love emmaV 46 Comments
She advocates to stop bullying and to get help right away if you have a problem. She is also living hope that recovery is possible.
Demi shared her story to help those who are in similar situations. She inspires every person to be him or her self and to ignore all the haters. She shows young girls that there is no need to be perfect and that in itself shows the perfection of her personality. LOVATIC for Life!
Demi is an amazing role model for teenagers and especially for those who go through difficult situations and bullying! She has even written a book to help people and make them believe in themselves. She celebrated her 21st birthday in Africa because she thought it would be more important than just having a party! She tries to inspire people and also has advised her fans to spend sometime with the things they love in order to forget to feel better and make themselves to forget their darkest moments!

Ariana is a jerk.
She is spoiled and she was caught wishing death to fans! Like, who does that?!
So what if she is cute? That doesn't make up for being a jerk!
So what if she loves animals? That doesn't make up for wishing death on fans!
Seriously, she was caught LICKING DONUTS. And she didn't even buy them afterwards!
That is completely immature and, frankly just gross.
Then she said she hates Americans and America!
80 percent of her fans are IN America!
She DID post a "sorry" video, but she was just sorry she got caught.
But then again, sometimes I have acted like that too.
But Ariana is a great role model.
If you want kids to turn out to be spoiled, bratty, and act like little jerks the rest of their lives! If you want your kids to wish death on good people. If you want your kids to lick
Donuts and then hate America and Americans, Ariana is an awesome role model.
She is always a smiling, cute and happy person and she is beautiful without being skinny or doing stupid things that many celebrities. She has an amazing voice and her acting talent is huge too.
I love ariana grande like crazy because cat is my fave character in sam and cat
She’s classy and empowering teaches women to love their bodies unconditionally.She handles all situations with grace and is a sweet funny person at the same time. Lastly she whilst empowering women she never boy bashesV 85 Comments
shows you what you can do if you do something you love and are willing to pay the price to do it.
she came from nothing and now she's richer than the queen! She's determined and modest and such a great women. She is giving her money to charity all the time too
She gave half the world a childhood. How's that not a role model?
And barack obama is only a a role model to American kids.
Please usa, some backbone! There are other countries in the world.

He is a good father and husband. He has morale conviction. He actually wants to be a good president, unlike many of our past presidents. He handles racism and general discrimination excellently much better than I do. He never flinches in the face of idiots, which is sometime else he does much better than me. He is on the top of my lists for roll models.
You're a fool. He hasn't done anything. The only reason he's on here is because of foolish liberals thinking he's a good role model because he's the first African American president. Besides, all presidents try to be good presidents. But some fail. Like Obama. He is a horrible role model. Your a blind, bloody, fool if you think this person is a good person. - LordDovahkiin
I see all these people, all of them going on and having a go at him. Nobody is perfect; did you not learn that? And if you hate him for all he does, then do so. We all know you couldn't even run for President and yet you act like he didn't accomplish anything. The people who post these negative comments are just people who can't do even a quarter of the job this man is doing. I myself can't and also, this is noy some American standing up, this is a British child who thinks this man is a great role model and deserves at least a few good claps as President and not hated on. Obama care may have negative effects, but that's all you think about. Now go get a life and do something that makes people happy instead of the opposite.
Written by a british child, 14
(And yes, I realise this is revealing but you all need to know that a young child has more sense than you critics)
Um... You know NOTHING about American politics. If you did you would be a Trump Supporter. - lilrocketman
He is a great president, well as good as he can be since he has a senate full of republicans who undermines whatever good he is trying to do. I bet all of you who is saying he is not a good role model are either, racist towards blacks, Arabs (because he has a Muslim name), republicans, or ignorant as hell... So Bush was better then, someone who went to war with every country he could so that his friends who supplies the military with weapons and most probably funded his campaign would make money. Bush Senior same ...picking fights around the world to put money in the pockets of the weapon suppliers...Plus America is not a super power, they owe the real super power lots and lots of money...China...and stop acting like the world police when you can't put order in your own backyard.
He is amazing [mic drop]V 62 Comments
I believe that Selena Gomez is someone teens look up to as a role model. She has made such a big impact on other lives that she should continue being a positive role model. She is always so humble and sweet, just being a regular person. She doesn't pretend to be good person just to get that "role model" label. She also doesn't try to be super or act like someone she isn't. She stays true to herself and that's why I think most teens look up to her. She will always be a great role model as long as she remains who she is.
She cares of her fans & she's the youngest UNICEF ambassador on 2007. Love you Selena
She is kind and caring and loves everyone
She is so very sweet and a encouraging person who I always see smilingV 38 Comments
Everyone in this section doesn't know anything about Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs basically shaped the technology world. He created many successful things, even though he was an adopted child, and his adoptive parents were poor. Steve battled pancreatic cancer... twice. He died because of it, but when he first had it, he continued to create amazing products. Steve Jobs is a great role model because he was perseverant, and took things for the team.
Um He did not make the Xbox. That's Microsoft. You should go to school and try to learn because your information IS WRONG! And Yes he was bald but still he went from nothing to Rich af.
The last electronic inventor ever to live.
He was a brilliant businessman who gets all the credit for Steve Wozniak's inventions. If being a hippie who takes credit for his friend and gets all the money for it is a good role model for kids, then he should be #1. If not, then I don't think he belongs on this list.V 26 Comments
He is the 16th President, the first to tare the Republican title. He freed all slaves in America!
He is amazing for freeing all slaves in America
He changed the world as we know it today and without him everything would be totally different
Below Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift. Why? - AliciaMaeV 22 Comments
She could be a role model for everyone. She teaches the kids to be true to themselves and that they can do amazing things if they have faith and talent. She is a very good influence.
Beyonce is always humble and is a remarkable role model for kids.
This is not school appropriate
Yeah, cause songs like Bootylicious and lyrics like
I shake my jelly at every chance
When I whip with my hips you slip into a trance
I'm hoping you can handle all this jelly that I have
Now let's cut a rug while we scat some jazz
ARE GREAT FOR KIDS (SARCASM) - SoldierOfFortune
Yes, because dressing up almost completely naked is great for the younger generation. -_-
Katy is so amazing I love her, it would be mazing to meet her. She is a role model because she is unique and dosn't care what others think about her... I love how she is so true to her fans she is one of the only celebrites that know how much her fans mean to her and how important they are for her sucess BY LAUREN GRACE... KATY COME TO AUSTRALIA!
Because she is unique
Hi katy perry l love you so mushV 23 Comments
He should have been first in this list. He has been through so much and he still managed to be on top and prove people that he can really make it. He came from a black neighbourhood, getting bullied everyday at school, his father left him when he was a baby, his uncle died, he couldn't find a job, he had drug problems, he got divorced twice and look at him now. He's probably the best selling artist of all times, he is the most talented and gifted music artist. He teaches people that you can do anything you set your mind to and that's why he wil always be my biggest role model.
I feel like he touches each of his fans/listeners personally with whatever issue they're dealing with with at least one of his songs... He should definitely be up in this list... Although Eminem is super controversial, because everyone is entitled to their own opinion to everything in life, he has changed many lives positively (and negatively, partially if you take some cases into consideration), but he still perseveres no matter how much hate he receives, including death threats and demotivating acts against him and that is a characteristic that everyone needs! He is definitely someone to look up to for many more characteristics that I have not mentioned...
I don't know why he is #41. He isn't that people! He is my role model by a long shot
The beset rapper of all time!V 44 Comments
Ellen stands up for what she believes is right and always donates money to people who are struggling.
She is the loveliest person ever.
Ellen is an amazing person. She is charitable, funny, and just seems like a great person.
The episode with Talia proves this. I literally cried seeing it, it was so sweet of Ellen to do all that for a young girl who was suffering cancer!
That picture though - BreakFastBeast2005V 40 Comments
He is by far the most hard working athlete. For example, when he was younger, he was kicked out of the basketball team. He started to try harder. Furthermore, when he got to the NBA he still appreciates his coach for kicking him out of the team. Only because he is now in the position he always wanted to be in. Therefore, I believe he should be part of this list.
He is really down to earth guy and a great basketball player. (better than LeBron james)
He was rejected by his school basketball coach for being too short. Now he's the greatest player of basketball in the world.
Easily the best role model should be number 1.V 25 Comments
Good role model, teaches science.
You taught us science when the teachers were too lazy. Thank you.

She teaches kids to stand up for what they believe in and that they don't have to be a size 0 to be beautiful. - ilovekelly75
Kelly is one of the very few in hollywood today who do what they do just because it is their passion, not for the money, not for the fame. She has made it from a small town girl from Texas to an international superstar, and still she is a completely level headed and normal girl.
OH MY GOD, Nobody knows the way she has impacted me, because of her I'm alive at this moment typing this now, All I have to say is shes a good role model for anyone to have, I look up to her a lot.
She teaches kids and teenagers that they shpuld stand up for what they believe in and voice out their opinions. And most importantly, she tells them that they don't have to be a size 0 to be beautifulV 16 Comments
I just want to say, if you like Shakira, READ MY COMMENT! Did you know Shakira was in the school choir! But one day her music teacher told her she sounded like a goat and she got expelled from the choir! Then she started helping people who are homeless or starving and said 'When I grow up and become an artist I will help all those people who are starving and homeless.' And she did. Artists don't have to be good singers to be role models. It's the things they do. I don't actually really like Shakira's voice but I feel so inspired by her now. Now I want to say, HA HA HA! Silly music teacher! Look at Shakira now! HA!
In every music video she smiles. She doesn't take drugs or smoke. In la la la she let a lot of kids into the music video and she loves football
She cares for every person's background and she made a song just about Africa
I love her songsV 17 Comments

Started life at the bottom if his class where everyone called him "Dummy." His father abandoned Ben's family and his mother was illiterate. They were extremely poor. Ben had a terrible temper to boot.
But his mom got her kids to turn off the T.V. and begin reading. They had to give her book reports. The books opened up their world and turned their life around.
Ben rose to the top of his class. Went on to save many lives as a world-class surgeon. Many people are now trying to get him to run for President of the USA.
One of the best surgeons of all time.
Proof positive that no matter what hand you are dealt, you can rise above it and go on to achieve virtually anything.
Ben Carson was at the bottom of his class but all thanks to his mother he was able to become a great doctorV 7 Comments
Adele is beautiful, talented, and inspiring. Yes, she is not as well known as "American pop stars" such as Taylor Swift, or Ariana Grande. Even so, I firmly believe that she lets her true and natural beauty show. Something that is not portrayed enough in our society is inner beauty. Adele has this inner beauty, a high level of talent, and is underrated in how amazing she truly is!
Adele experienced a lot of bullying during her life because of her weight, she has shown people all over the world it is okay to be a larger size as you are beautiful no matter what
A truly normal lass living her dream :) A great Mum, wife and singer
She teaches kids manners. Like saying "hello", and other stuff. Didn't vote for her, but angry and sad I didn't. I am always ad I didn't vote for Adele. She is the wonderful, cute Brittie, and her song is maybe inspire kids. Bottom line, she's nice, Britttish, polite, not controversial, and she did a song about the importance of getting rich, and rubbing it in your ex's face (Rolling in the Deep). - FuzzySlippersV 10 Comments
Michael Jackson is a very good role model, whoever said he stinks they are wrong. He did a lot of great things for his fans, his family, and really he did a lot of good stuff to the world to.
Laugh out loud that he does
What?! Michael Jackson is a terrible role model! He teaches insecurity (he changed his looks because he didn't like the way he looked) he also teaches it's not cool to grow up and everyone should want to be like peter pan and never grow up.
I vote him he good he good person yayyayyaV 16 Comments
MLK stands out in this list because he had the biggest influence on society. I would pick him as my role model for sure. Personally, however, my role model is either Winston Churchill or Kurt Hahn.
Martin Luther King is one of the most influential speakers known to man, he is a perfect role model due to his determantion to never quit...
MLK jr got assassinated that sucked he is my favorite role model

He's no scientist. He's a sophist and a demonstrable fraud.
A fraud of the lowest order.
Best role model ever.

Lea Michele shows that you can move on after mourning over a loved one, for example corey monteith! they were so close it was unbelievable and he just dies, and how does she cope? by doing the show that she well and truly loves,shes a perfect model she needs to be nearer to the top
Who is this?
He is an amazing role model
Even if he didn't develop the theory of relativity would still be regarded as one of the greatest scientists ever. In fact his Nobel Prize in physics was not awarded for relativity at all.

Uh uh! She dissed ariana
She is awesome. But she's not a singer, soz.
Okay she had a leaked picture. but 1. she was not naked like most are 2. she didn't leak it herself and 3. she handled the situation maturely by not directly naming the person who leaked them. apart from that she is funny, smart, sweet, sticks by her friends but is not afraid to stick up for herself.P. S I would appreciate no hate, we are all here to share our opinuons and that is just what I am doing xxx
The man is an inspiration. He didn't give up even though he had very bad disabilities. - boce
He was a great person with many virtues and knew what a real man should be.
Dood he got us outta the great depression
She is an awful role model! She gets on stage half-naked while little children are watching her! The only thing she cares about is how to get naked and although she is a really good singer she destroys her song with her music videos! She also does drugs and that definitely makes her a bad example for young people!
She is an amazing role model. She isn't afraid of being herself. Yeah, she does stupid and inappropriate things, but everyone does when they're 20. She's finding herself. Miley also has dedicated herself to many campaigns and charities. She's definitely my role model.
Why is she on this list she I totally not a role modal for kids that's exactly what you don't want your kids to be like when their older.
No. - Userguy44V 14 Comments

Ghandi was a wise man, why does no-one listen to his teachings against violence?
He tried to fight using non-violence.

Will Smith respects women and empowers his daughter. Also, he's hot and a good actor.
Will Smith is a very good rapper
(though not as good as Eminem or 2pac)
But he never curses anyone or uses any bad words so you can listen to his raps even in front of your parents
Will Smith, he has been in many movies and shows. Personally, I'm a fan. Thank you. -? #23

He is the only male example here that actually would encourage boys to be a leader, and to fight for what he believes in rather then follow. Not enough of that today. This list is also somewhat off putting for white boys, as obviously they will notice the other models are not them.
He should be number 1 because he turned down the chance to be a king so people could be free to do what they wanted so he chose president instead
Should be in the top ten raised America as first president
So awesome he even treated the genrals like familtV 2 Comments
