There are so many terrible role models for our children plastered over the media.
From YouTube Jackass wannabes to anyone with the last name Kardashian, there are dozens of places our kids can get the wrong idea of what it’s like to be when you grow up.

From encouraging others to try riding a bike, to swallowing fear and ski jumping, to being true to oneself, these kids are awesome.
If they can’t be yours, you can at least take some parenting lessons from each clip and try to instill that kind of positivity, hope, creativity, and determination in your kids.

Do you have any childhood mentors for your children?
