Be a Role Model

Have you ever been looked up to? Has a kid ever imitated you (in a good way)? Do youngsters use your vocabulary, repeat your maxims, follow your advice?

That's a powerful drug.

The world is full of opportunities to shape young minds, from formal programs like Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, or Scouting, to "just" being a mom or dad.

Remember that kids learn more by what we do than by what we say. Remember that they may not even realize they're emulating you. And, alas, remember that sometimes they learn by negative example.

So be a hero. Take on a role that you can be proud of.

Be a role model.

You'll be happier.
