Since I watch a lot of television with my kids, I often have to point out to them that while a character might be hilarious to watch, they aren’t necessarily a good role model. This inevitably brings up the question, “Why are the funniest characters on television the worst role models?” Well, to disprove that premise, here are some of the best role models for children.
Dr. Leonard Hofstadter (The Big Bang Theory)
Putting aside the fact that Leonard is a full on genius, he is the kind of guy that young boys should aspire to be. He is respectful of women, a good housekeeper, a loyal friend and clearly has good study habits. More importantly, he gives young men hope of scoring chicks who are way out of their league.
