It’s hard to find good teen role models these days. Most celebrity teens end up caught in a trap of drugs or alcohol, and if they do manage to escape that Hollywood destiny, they are stuck on themselves or more concerned with fashion than with what they can do to become a better person or help the world become a better place. So here’s my solution to this dilemma: YOU can be a role model. Yes, you! Look at all the young people in your life, siblings, cousins, neighborhood children, and purpose to become a great role model to them. Here’s 7 easy ways to get you started!

A young teenage girl exuding confidence is a beautiful sight! Most adolescents these days are insecure and worry a lot about acceptance. If you want to be a great role model, take pride in what you do, your school, your job, and your relationships. Do your best on everything, and then trust that you did well. Others, especially young children, will pick up on that confidence and they will strive to have confidence too!
