Heroes Are More Important to Children Than Ever

There’s no question about it. There’s mounting stress and pressure on today’s children and teens. Kids still need to dream, have hope and believe in their own personal power. Having a hero is a great way for kids to sustain that dream and build optimism, which is so important in these complex times.

Have you ever asked your children who their heroes are? Some children might say firefighters, police or soldiers are modern day heroes. Other kids identify scientists and doctors as heroes because they save lives. Some kids might mention sports figures. There are also children who pick heroes right in their own family.

Heroes provide a blueprint as to how to make meaningful contributions to society. Heroes don’t have to be perfect to still have a powerful effect on the developing minds of young people. In fact, coping models who struggle yet succeed are often the role models most admired.
