Parents as role models for children
Parents must be an example for their children. Being a role model is the most powerful form of education. Young people need role models rather than criticism.
John Wooden grew up on a farm in Indiana and his parents were his first mentors. His mother taught him what it means to work hard, and that working hard is part of life. His father was a man of extraordinary inner strength, he had strong moral principles, which he passed on to his four children simply by the way he lived his life. He was a good, strong and positive man who never spoke badly about anyone, he was the type of man Wooden tried to become.
