From birth babies are constantly watching other people. Babies and kids watch everything that is put in front of them. They watch their parents, siblings, television, and other kids that are around them. Role models have an astounding effect on the lives of young people in our society. A role model has the ability to shape the views, ideas, and actions of a young person. Role models have a strong effect on what youth decide to become in the future. The influence that role models have over young people is tremendous. It is important for role models to be positive and responsible in instilling good morals and values because future generations are directly dependent on the role models of today. Celebrities are usually high role models because they are on television and in the media daily. I am a Christian, so I decided to stay with a good role model who shares somewhat of the same worldview as mine. Based upon the example this celebrity set in life, family, and career choice, I chose to write about Tyra Banks. Tyra Banks undeniably fits into the Christian Theism worldview.
