A Child Needs a Positive Role Model

A Child Needs a Positive Role Model

“As children grow up they are looking for role model

and they will find it in their parents.  As a role

 model the parents lays down the foundation

for who that child becomes.”

Lou Ludwig Sales and Management Consultant,

Success Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Author



As I See it . . . . . . .

A child needs a positive role  


Your children will use you as their role model. They will become a reflection of your actions . . . . and will repeat them throughout their lives.


Children become a reflection of their parents . . . .


Parents are not perfect . . . . you are who you are . . . . Your children will watch you using you as their role model . . . . and mirror your behavior. When you want your children to improve . . . . be the role model that you want your children to reflect.


Act as you would want your children to act . . . . Speak the way you want your children to speak to others . . . . and treat people that way you want you children to treat other people.


Let your children act as you act . . . . help them to be the person that you are. Set the example for your children . . . . and be their role model for the way you want your children to grow up and become.


It’s important to set a positive example for your children . . . . So their actions would make you proud even when you’re not there.


Children mirror the parents in the smallest details. Set the example . . . . so that they become the best person that they can become.


Children become a reflection of their parents . . . . Be positive role model for your children. When you have done a good job in being your children’s role model . . . . it creates a strong foundation for them to build their life on.


A child needs a positive role model . . . . be the one that puts their future on solid footing.

Lou Ludwig Have you seen the Trump children at the RNC?

They obviously had a good role model.

You nailed it here, Lou. I think much of the problems today are because people lacked adequate role models.

I agree and I believe that many young adults still need that role model to really mature.

My kids are repeating back to me now things I taught them and thought they weren't listening. This makes me smile.

Children definitely need a positive role model. That's a problem with our society, not enough positive role models.

while I agree with your proposition, there are exceptions, aren't there? Not all children reflect what their parents teach them. I know children from the same family where two of three children were clones of their parent's virtues but the third was challenged and troubling, yet, all children received the same love and support from their parents. So, what's your perception why this might have occurred?

Very powerful post!  I have to share it on G+!  

The exception for me is that I chose a mentor when I was 17 to follow and it worked very well.  I still remember "Linda" to this day and how much she encouraged me!

We all need/needed positive role models.

It is amazing to me how many parents have taken literally the message of "it takes a village to raise a child."

More parents need to grow up, man up and raise their own offspring to become productive citizens and quit pawning them off on society or the daycare to raise.

I have always thought, if you aren't mature enough and stable enough to raise a child, don't bring them into the world to fend for themselves.
