"Being a positive role model is a term that we hear often. We usually hear it in the context of what we expect from athletes and entertainers. However, I believe that a father being a role model to his children is more important. In fact, when a father is a role model for his child it lessens if not eliminates the child's desire to look for role models in others. An important fact to consider is that as a father you are a role model whether you realize it or not. Your children are watching everything you do and forming opinions based on what they see. The Question becomes not if you want to be a role model, but what kind of role model you want to be."
