Posted:     Post subject: First of all, Just what is a role model? How is it defined?

The term "Role Model" is widely used, but its true meaning is open to debate. I want to see how some of you define this term and its meaning.

For me, a role model is someone whom someone else looks up to and wants to be like. The problem with this is that role models can also be some very bad people. Do we still apply the term "role model" to them?

When should the term be used? Confused
[color=blue]
I believe that people who are living in accordance with the law, can be and should be coined as role models. But we all know that there are some people who are living foul! They are breaking the law every day in more than just a few ways. These types of people have followers who aspire to be just like them; so in that vein, they are role models.

But should the term be applied to them? Confused

I believe that it should not. Even though they have admirers, their activities and actions are not in accordance with what most of us know as the laws of God and man.

What do you think? Who is a Role Model?

.Role model is someone that you look up too. He/she is the one that gives you inspiration.

In response to the preceding, should an unlawful activity practicing person be considered a role model, I would say that they should be called "parole models" Cool .

I grew up around the saying, " I could show you better than I could tell you."

We are all "role models" to those, especially the less experienced, who pay attention to our activities. What we do, not what we say, is how we model.

I believe in separating the sense from the nonsense. How I do that is just one model. Someone else may practice the same creed, but differently; hence, a different model.
