I respect my mum but she isn't my role model, my dad definitely isn't.
NO, I'm taller than my mum, and about the same height as my dad.
Haw Haw Haw
I don't particularly think of them as role models, but recently I've started noticing that I share a lot of my parents characteristics. They say you turn into one of your parents eventually and that theres nothing you can do about it. Worrying stuff. Honestly though, I think role models are vital. We all model ourselves on other people to some extent, hopefully positive ones
I look up to my mum for her strong character. Other than that, I don't really see her as a role model.
I respect my parents... but I can't say I 'look up' to them. Truth be told, I don't 'look up' to anyone.
i really have a lot of respect for my parents.
both came from working class backgrounds in belfast and joined the police in the 80's during the troubles in northern ireland knowing there was a pretty decent chance they'd get into some serious problems or even die because of it.
they did it to give my brother and i a better childhood than they had and they've been rewarded with good careers and well above average earnings now.
the penalty is some of the stuff they've seen which would haunt anyone for the rest of their days.
I respect my parents a lot . my father is the most idealistic person I ever seen . all his life he has never compromised with his principles. I admire him a lot .
I wouldn't want to be like my mum or dad even though there's a lot of things i admire about them..
I don't aspire to be like my parents however I very much respect the way they raised me. While I thought they were scum at the time I can very much respect how and why they made decisions as they did. I wouldn't raise my child quite the same way however.
My dad worked for a Ph.D and has continued to work hard during his career, so yes I respect that. My mum does what she enjoys for a relatively small salary, so she's doing things right too. But I wouldn't call them role models in any sense, not because there's anything fundamentally wrong with who they are but because I don't think I necessarily want to live my life the way they've done. There are things I want to do my own way.
I respect my father in precisely the way that I don't respect my mother, and vice-versa: the former is an obstinately-principled, burnt-out, selfish, impoverished, illustrious but emotionally-immature intellectual devoid of any common-sense; the latter is a prosperous, pragmatic, magnanimous, adaptable and resilient single-parent. Both are monumentally talented (particularly my father).
I admire them both, though I would not aspire to end up like either.
I don't respect them and I don't look up to them. I do have a few role models and people I look up to but nobody in my imediate life (anymore) and nobody in pop culture.
its probably easier to have grandparents (if theyre still alive) as rolemodels becasue partaking in WW2 instantly makes them bastions of virtue.
grandparents were hardcore too. everything was metal and cotton and people smoked pure tar cigarettes.
I definitely do. When I was younger, I really aspired to be like my father, because his intelligence, logic and transferable skills were astounding. I looked up to my mother as well, because she was not as hot-tempered as I was and in terms of household stuff she was very skilled. Now, I can see their faults and I do not see their words as the words of God anymore, but I do still look up to them. I think having a parental figure to look up to is important.
