WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, YOU ARE A ROLE MODEL
WHETHER you like it or not; if you're unaware or indifferent to it or you think you are too old; or even if you don't feel like it today, you, yes you, are more than likely a role model for someone else. That's right, somebody who knows you is likely to be observing how you behave and how you interact with others. This is not something new for parents; the eyes of inquisitive children are often silently watching your relationships. This begs the question, are you a positive role model for them, influencing others for good with your kind-hearted actions? Or are those little eyes seeing you argue with hostility and venom towards your partner or throwing a fist a their face? Are they seeing you drink to excess or hit the bottle hard? Sometimes it is good to stop, then think and then act! How will what I do, or say, influence others? – South East Metropolitan Community Engagement Co-ordinator Matt Sharp
