Top 10 Best Role Models for Kids
According To The Christian Bible, Jesus' purpose on Earth was redemption and salvation. While He was on Earth he healed the sick, brought the dead back to life, forgave sins, died on the cross for the world, and gave us a pathway to salvation. ...read more.
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.
Jesus loved the unlovely even prostitutes and criminals! Whether you believe he came or not he is still an amazing role model - even Gandhi said "I love your Jesus" - yeah I know he wasn't even Christian and Gandhi saw him as a role model. how can you argue that anyone on this list is better than Jesus, just because someone doesn't take drugs doesn't mean they compare to the only perfect man ever to have lived ; and whats more he loves you more than anything you can imagine! even if you don't believe in god or Jesus he is still unarguably the best role model on this list. and if you thought it couldn't get better he died... for you!
Jesus is not the first because the way that leads to destruction is broad and many will follow. Jesus is the unmistakable top role model and saviour. Many will refuse to believe because it is giving up their pride and letting God... Letting God do his will and the believe that Jesus is the door and "no one" comes to the father but by Jesus. That concept cut self-pride. It's not all about me, it's about Jesus. My death doesn't matter, only Jesus' death Matters
Why is Jesus not 1st? Our Lord came to save us, loved everyone-even those with leprosy, whom everyone feared and made an outcast of. Jesus is the Son of God and told everyone one simple message, which should not be hard to follow, "Love everyone one as I have loved you." His message was pure and from His Sacred Heart.
It saddens me to see those who do not stick up for Jesus, when He saved you!
He is my role model, and always will be!
I love you Lord Jesus!
Alright people lets get this straight. You might not think that she is the best role model or whatever or you might think she is but Jesus or your parent should have been first, but lets be honest here. Taylor sings about her boyfriends and love. Maybe she does. Okay BUT guess what? So does Ed Sheeran. SO does Ariana Grande. So does Bruno Mars and Adam Levine. Why is Taylor the one who is getting trashed on it? She sings about the same things that everyone else does and I fond it really unfair that shes being called out on that. Here's another point. Not everyone has great parents that are there for them all the time. Sometimes they're away and lets face it. When you don't have anyone else to lean on, you're typically going to turn to music. Taylor writes relatable songs and that is why she is on this list. Maybe I am being biased because I love her a lot, but this is just straight up facts. Taylor has the most fans out of any of the real celebrities here (not saying that demi or ...more
Taylor is a great role model for kids and adults she is so kind and thoughtful towards her fans and family.She also teaches little kids to stand up to bullies not only does she say that she puts it into one of her songs 'Mean'. Taylor is my role model for many reasons including:she dresses age appropriately,that is a good example for her younger fans.I love the way that she is always herself in her videos she is not afraid to show her fans her inner self that is why her music makes me so happy.The best thing a role model could do for her fans is go to surprise them,Taylor does that she even surprises her fans that are in hospital which is why she is such a good role model to anyone whether they are kids teens or adults.
Taylor always says that being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind. She says that doesn't matter what kind of bad day we're having, we need to always be nice to people. And that's a great advice, coming from a young woman who is always sweet to everyone.
She's a good role model: most young celebrities at about age 20 decide that they can get away with anything and lose themselves in stupid things, but she doesn't. Her songs are appropriate for kids, too.
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.
There can be absolutely no other candidate on this poll who could come close to Jackie Evancho in this poll. Don't believe me? For those who don't know Jackie, check out her Wikipedia page just to give you an idea of who she is and what she has done to inspire role-model status. To those of us who know about Jackie this is certainly a no-brainer.
Jackie Evancho is a great role model for anyone of any age: work hard, be kind to animals, be loyal to family and friends, be humble, be grateful, be charitable, be joyous in everything you do.
Hard working, focused, charitable, does not need to leave a train wreck in her personal or professional wake; the perfect role model for today's generation.
This is America's greatest president and one of our greatest American heroes. So, why is a socialist who just happens to be African American above him?
He is the 16th President, the first to tare the Republican title. He freed all slaves in America!
Abraham Lincoln was the best president I have ever seen rule a country. he ruled America with wisdom, justice and benevolence
We are in agreement. He changed the world as we know it.
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 very beautiful. She acts the characters are very nice. I think she can be the role model for teenage too. Moreover, she studied in the best university. I think this is the most important that she studied very good and does her work very well. I think she uses a stone to kill two birds.
Emma is a down to Earth person and works hard for her belongings. Her part in Harry Potter shows us that we need to work on school, but not let that control us.
She couldn't be less bothered with what celebrities ought to do. She does whatever she believes in. That's something everybody should strive to do.
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.
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.
Although his inventions are not as good as the Android system, Steve Jobs is still a good model.
Be as Steve. He was a role-model, a teacher, an inventor, a person who the world needs him.
She has overcome many tough situations: divorce, being poor whilst looking after a very young daughter, and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone getting rejected the first time. I think she is brilliant.
Having her first Harry Potter book rejected by seven different publishes, and yet still perseveres to have the best-selling fiction book of all time. Also disregards stereotypes, particularly those directed at women
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.
She shows that everyone can make it through pain and level up to the best you, you can be, she once was homeless and now is a role model for most.
When I listen to ariana grande I feel like I'm above the clouds. She is always smiling, cute and happy person and she is beautiful without being skinny or doing stupid things like many celebrities. She has an amazing voice and her acting career is huge too. She is really pretty and she does not do drugs which is great. She teaches little k
She's insanely talented, she has a unique style and she's a genuine person. If you watch her interviews on YouTube you see what kind of person she is. She is always willing to answer to her fans questions, loving, passionate about what she's doing and the sweetest person ever.
I love her she sweet nice I love her so much (not in a gross way) but she has the best voice. Her Demi lovato, Kelly Clarkson, and Taylor swift have all some thing in common the all have a confidence in their voice and they believe in there self witch every star wants
Why is she in the top10? She is not a good role model. She was a great role model when is was in victorious but now she's not, she actually very self centered and vain. vain doesn't mean she mean it means she only cares about her looks and not what really matters.
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 is very humble and sweet, she is a regular person. She doesn't pretend to be good person just to get that "role model" label and she also doesn't try to be super - controversial like Miley and some other stars. Selena acts her age and that's so good.
Oh please, please vote for her she's very kind and caring to young children from all around the world and she doesn't show off her body a lot of times. There are just so many things children and adults from all ages can learn from her.
Selena advocates to stop bullying and to get help right away if you have a problem. She is also living hope that recovery is possible. and I think she is a #1 role model
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!
Well I think demi is a good role model personally, though other might not think that there is a lot of her music that has helped me, Because of her I'm a better person and I'm also alive because of her. I look up to her in a lot of ways, not that I want to be her but, I want to be like her.
Demi should be number 1! She is the best role model I personally and many many other people I know could ask for. She has shared her journey and her struggles with the world and has previously overcome issues that many have faced and spoke out openly about them to the whole world. Yes, she relapsed in July, yes she overdosed. But, if anyone uses that to argue she isn't a good role model, then that's a very invalid point. She may have fallen, but everyone falls in life and if anything it shows that everyone, even celebrities that you know and love, make mistakes and behind closed doors, you do not know what is going on in people's lives. After her overdose, she has stayed strong and is over 3 months clean now, which is incredible. Alongside her strength to be honest with the public, Demi has donated to charities and done advocacy work to raise awareness of bullying and also tried incredibly hard to change the stigma around mental health, by not only raising awareness for it, but ...more
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!
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...
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.
Not quite a completely good role model, but my appreciation for him is that he a Will Smith are the only two people left rapping that are not rapping about, MONEY,MONEY,MONEY,...bling, cars, sex, and Eminem raps about what he went through in life, his relationship with his mother, daughter, brother, and ex-wives...what rappers like 2Pac wanted rap to really be about...funny it's a white guy who is truly embodying what rapping was meant to be all about...Drake, Lil Wayne, Jayz, and all the blacks, have loss their way...
Eminem saved my life. He's the biggest role model out there. He should be number 1, no doubt.
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 was rejected by his school basketball coach for being too short. Now he's the greatest player of basketball in the world.
He has his own charity and donates to many others even after retirement.
He is really down to earth guy and a great basketball player. (better than LeBron james)
Teaches us about jailing climate change deniers!
Biggest Supporter of free speech in the US, kudos to this guy.
You taught us science when the teachers were too lazy. Thank you.
Great to go to for information about science.
Good role model, teaches science.
Why is taylor swift number one? So what she doesn't smoke and drink, does that make her perfect? All she does is date guys to write songs and break their hearts. MLK showed us that we could become a country of freedom, and we did. taylor swift wrote stupid songs.
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.
He should be some where at the top! He is one of the most inspirational people in the world! He helped stop slavery!
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...
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.
Great singer and he is the king of pop!
He is funny and a great actor.
He is an amazing singer
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!
A wonderful person inside and out. Selfless, Good sense of humor, and she is extremely brave. I can't believe pop stars are possibly good role models? I am losing faith in humanity.
Ellen DeGeneres is an outstanding, inspirational and spirit filled person. I love her and these reasons were very convincing and wonderful to say about someone.
I think that she's a person that people look up to (either you're a lesbian or not, but escpecially when you're a lesbian). She proved people that she can be big and respectful and she can make her dreams come true. She shows LGBT people that it does get better.
He is not a jerk
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.
He's one of the best scientists ever to exists. He's a good role model for kids since he had a big contribution in science.
The best scientist of all time.
What is he doing at 185?
She is also is one of the best-selling artists of all time. She won 4 Guinness World Records, 5 MTV Awards, 5 American Music Awards, 16'ASCAP Pop Music Awards, 5 Billboard Music Awards, 14 People's Choice, 1 Juno Award, 2 Myx Music Awards, 3 NRJ Awards, 6 Teen Choice and a Brit Award.
Katy, herself was once a Christian-genre singer and was only known at Santa Barbara. She signed at Columbia Records but been dropped but got hired at Capitol Records.
In 2008, she released her first single I Kissed A Girl which got mixed reviews but became a successful hit. In the same year, she also released her second single Hot n Cold which got nominated for Best Female Video of the Year but lost to Taylor Swift's You Belong With Me. ...read more.
I personally think that katy perry is absolutely amazing, she is such a good person, she shown that its okay to be a lesbian in the video 'I kissed a girl' yeah she is a bit extreme? but isn't everyone!
I guess she is a great role model. For me. According to me she must be number one role model. She is a great role model for today's young generation.
I love Katy she's so nice and beautiful and such a good singer. I've learned every word of every song that she sings, she's just amazing!
So strong even though her husband divorced her through a text. And is now having a kid. Idol
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.
Work hard, study hard, Dr. Ben Carson became one of the greatest surgeons of all time, and saved countless lives. Nobody could be a better role model for kids or adults.
Proof positive that no matter what hand you are dealt, you can rise above it and go on to achieve virtually anything.
Yup, leave it to a liberal to diss one of the greatest people ever because they don't like his religion.
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.
Let's take a moment to think about all of the most successful people in the world. Ok, how many of them are completely conservative? Maybe two or three, but almost all celebrities and well-known, non politicians are liberal. New York, L.A., Miami, most of the United States' most famous and important cities are mainly democratic. Does that not say something about the world?! It makes me so angry when uneducated people say such horrible things about a person like Barack Obama. Would you rather have Jeb Bush as president? When J. Bush was asked which woman he would put on the dollar bill he said 'Margaret Thatcher"! She's not even from the U.S.! She was a BRITISH prime minister! The lack of intellect here is incredible. I personally find Barack Obama to be an amazing role model, and I hope that someday that people won't disguise their racist views behind a facade of 'it's not that he's black, he's just a liar'.
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.
Some really rude people hate him cause he's black... you guys are racist. You are the one of the best presidents, EVER! I'm black too and for a short amount of time I would think I would go nowhere when I grew up because they world not accept me even if a law passed about it...shut UP Republicans, liars, and racists! Obama has encouraged me to be the best I can be, even if I'm still 11.
She is a great role model because she is talented as a singer and as a musician and she could inspire the kids to start taking vocal lessons or learning an instrument.
Carrie underwood is a great personand deserves good, she is a caring mother and a great singer. I've loved her for most of my life, sure she fell down the stairs and had to get surgery but she didn't hit her head hard enought to turn on us! love you carrie!
Carrie Underwood is an amazing role model for young people because she is very humble and true to herself.
Carrie proves to young girls that hard work really pays off. She's so humble and sweet!
He led us to victory and beat the Germans!
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.
She is a good role model. She teaches kids how to be true to themselves.
She is a role model for everyone and even though Jay-Z cheated on her, she still makes music today.
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!
Shakira is a great role model she inspires kids to be good In school she is very nice and kind to her fans in my opinon she is the best role model. She is very appropriate for all ages and has a general audience
She is a real person, she's not putting a face on for a record or a cd. She's pretty much true to herself and her music influences.
I like Shakira so much! I have an girl that loves Shakira!
