Top Ten Best Role Models for Kids

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Ben Carson Ben Carson Benjamin Solomon "Ben" Carson, Sr. is a retired American neurosurgeon and former candidate for President of the United States.

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 doctor

22 Adele Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles ...read more.

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). - FuzzySlippers

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.

You mean Wacko Jacko. Call HIM a role model? If yes you're about as wacko as he was.

24 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

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 stopped rasism

One of the greatest men in history

Yes I use his quote for everything
