Role Model

I am a positive role model for the children in my life.

Whether I am a parent or grandparent, aunt or uncle, teacher or babysitter, neighbor or friend, I have an important responsibility to the children in my life.

Because I am an adult, children look up to me and learn behaviors from me. By treating children with kindness, attentiveness and respect, I foster their healthy growth and development.

Striving to be the best example I can be to young people, I call on the patience of God within me if I feel frustrated, overwhelmed or intolerant.

I look for opportunities to draw out their talents and praise their successes. Though they stumble at times, they can always rely on me to be there for them as a supportive and encouraging presence.

I will counsel you with my eye upon you.--Psalm 32:8
