What is a role model? A role model is someone who models behavior worth emulating. I must say, Miley Cyrus does not model behavior worth anything when she is off screen. On screen, she’s a great actress and her movies encourage positive attitudes and great moral values. But let’s take a look at what her character off screen suggests. Here are 7 reasons why Miley Cyrus is not a good role model.
Miley reportedly parked in a handicap parking space while out to buy milkshakes. Not only is this against the law, but it shows great lack of character and concern for those who might need that spot! This is just one example of many that proves Miley Cyrus has no respect nor bothers to worry about others feelings or needs.

I’m sure many of you have seen or heard of the YouTube video that Miley and her friend posted making fun of Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. While it’s true that Miley did apologize, she sort of “smoothed it over” in a round about way by saying that it wasn’t intended to poke fun, just to make people laugh. At whose expense Miley? Ladies, I don’t think this is the message we want to send our children!

This is probably a very widely known fact, but Miley has been know to take many inappropriate pictures of herself and flaunt her body about. Need I mention the Vanity Fair photo shoot or the pictures she took of herself in her underwear with her cell phone? This is a very bad image to send to young girls! And it’s everywhere; they can’t help but see it. Miley is quite famous.

The way that Miley carries herself and walks portrays an image that will permanently be grounded in our young people's minds. Her overall attitude and demeanor is simply not very ladylike or proper. And her songs obviously put a very bad idea of love and boyfriends and teenage rebellion in our young girls' minds. Not good!
When Miley Cyrus was 15, she told Oprah Winfrey on her talk show that she wanted to dress in a way that young girls could look up to and respect. And she did for a while! Her clothes were cute, fashionable, and modest. But what happened? Her clothing as of recently is portraying a very different image, one that is not respectable, but the problem is, young girls still look up to her! Uh-oh!

Someone once said it is better to have great character traits than to have to make theatrical apologies. Some people don’t even know how to make it a drama scene. So, if and when you do really need to say I am sorry, say it with all your heart and mean it.

Maybe, when Miley was younger, she presented a great role model. But as she grew more popular and famous, she has taken a turn for the worse. She has changed and instead of encouraging good character, she degrades her own body image and has absolutely no care for herself or for the ones that she makes fun of all the time. Or even her fans, considering they are the ones who have to put up with her embarrassing displays.
These are but a few among many things I could say about Miley that make her a bad role model. If your children look up to Miley, perhaps you could gently point out the things in her life that are bad examples and encourage your children to find someone else to look up to. Do you agree with me?
