Making The Most Of Role Models For Our Children
Evangelia Christodoulou, Head of Research and Development
Having a role model is an important part of growing up – it gives inspiration, motivation, and even a path as to how to reach a certain goal or vision for yourself. This is a journey that starts from a very young age, and exposure to the right kind of role models is crucial – even more crucial however is the ability to critically look at a role model and pick the behaviours, attitudes, and skills that you should aspire to achieve, leaving behind those that you shouldn’t. In this Raise Your Game session, Evangelia shares her thoughts that as parents, providing exposure to a wide range of role models as well as providing the space to discuss and reflect on them with our children is an essential step in helping them in their overall development.
