Learning can occur naturally when parents serve as role models for their child and demonstrate how to learn, facilitate learning, and guide learning (McLain & Heaston, 1993).

As a parent, you automatically become a role model for your children, so it is important to show them how to handle problem situations competently. We strive to be a resource for children and their families to help them develop the life skills they need for a successful, productive culture. This is the time when we need to play an even more active role in the lives of our children and make an informed decision not only about the formation of cultural competence, but also about its active promotion. As the media, and especially social media, continues to have an increasing influence on the lives of our children, parents and other traditional role models may be in danger of becoming less influential.

Role models are especially helpful in representing this ideal self because by observing role models people can pre-test different styles or behaviors to see which ones best suit their developmental style.
