  • his work ethic yes, his parenting or judgemental attitude no.:)
  • He's deceased now, but he definately was a role model. Everyone knew him as a no nonsense person who was firm BUT fair. He exhibit great work ethics and morals. Men like that are far and few in between.
  • no chance. he is the most unreliable person in the world who will always let you down. I am now back on speaking terms with him but i have realised not to believe or trust a word he says
  • Frustratingly yes, it's actually hard to live up to at times.
  • Yes, I'd be doing well to be half the man and father he is
  • To me he was, and I couldn't have cared less what the hell anyone had to say about it back then, and I still don't today.
  • Not at all. My mother's father, the chain smoking, WWII US Marine sniper, retired prison guard, with a bad disposition and a quick fist, was by far a better role model than my dad. I just wish my granddad were still around so he could meet my son. He looks like him.
  • Yeah, for how I'm supposed to lie six feet under. Actually, he was a very good role model.
  • He was indeed, Wanbli, though he is no longer with me. He is still with me in a very important way. I hardly make any decision of importance without asking myself,..."what would he do?" I feel sad for those who did not or do not have a father like mine.
  • No, my father was a mean, drunken asshole that liked to run around on his wife and embarrass his family any way that he could.
  • Yes, my dad is a good role model, He is a caring, kind human being a little grumpy at times, But I always know how to make my dad laugh. But yes, he's a very good man.
  • Yes, after 25 years in the military 3 tours in korea & 3 in vietnam then working 3 jobs to take care of 5 children - i can say he did it right
  • Nope. Far from it. Main reason is he was abused as a child in school. The only reason he is not a role model is because he takes his anger out on his family, not physically like, just mentally, he's very emotional.
  • My father was a role model in many ways, but I also learnt through his mistakes, he wasnt perfect and neither am I!
  • in somes ways... yes. in other ways, no.
  • excellent father yes, great role model no, but would not trade him for all the mac make-up in the world
  • The best.
  • My father really wasnt the best role model, He was a drinker and used drugs and really wasnt there for me or my half sister. My step-father is the dad that really raised me. I wish I could say that he was a great role model, but he is a recovering alcoholic (15+ yrs sober) and although that is inspiring, he wasnt the best dad when I needed him most. NOW he is, but I am 29 and although it's true that you ALWAYS need your parents, the crucial times are long gone. At least he is a good role model for my younger siblings.
  • Not particularly, but I have learned what not to do.
  • No, he was not.
  • no he was a jackass who I am glad is no longer around. If there is any justice he's roasting in hell for the miserable bastard he was to me and my mom.
  • He's a complete dick. He follows in his fathers footsteps. His dad drank, and beat his wife and my dad. What a dad, >_>
  • yes he is. he came from an extremely poor abusive childhood and made a wonderful life for my family. he is the only one in his family who managed to rise above it all.
  • For the most part, he showed me what strength it took to provide for a family.
  • Let me say this I am my dad all over he is a great role model to be honest, I would have gone mad when I was younger if it wasnt for him he kept the smiles on my face and to be honest he still does :) I laugh at the same things, I love liverpool fc, loving partys, love having a laugh, loving dancing..
  • He is. He's like the most intelligent person I've ever met. He's incredibly sarcastic. He's funny. He expects me to be the best that I can. Because of that he can be a bit judgemental. And he's not very good with the 'I love you' thing. But he works dead hard, he's strong, we basically have the exact same sense of humour and he's a brilliant person. I'm happy if I'm anything like him.
  • He is died now, but no he wasn't.
  • Only if you wanted to aspire to be a mafia/criminal/rapist/bank robber/racist/abusive/terrorist son-of-a-bitch who's greatest achievement in life was to be born as a Ciclian monster and follow his FUCKED UP father (my Nonno) to make the top ten most wanted by the FBI. Glad he is dead. Glad they are BOTH dead! Cancer got my father, after he remarried and beat the shit out of his new wife and step children. If you can read this dad - FUCK YOU!!!! I LIVED TO TELL...
  • Yeah of what not to do. He was'nt around, and we were already raised up by the time our step dad was in the picture. My younger brother became a man based on what our father did'nt do and what our mother taught him and I could'nt be more proud of him right now. He's an amazing man.
  • He could do better
  • Yes. He's hard working, and great, though he is a little stoic. He's one of the most important men in my life.
  • How are we defining father? Because my step father is great but my real father was pathetic! Not being cruel but speaking from my heart!
  • nope. the closest member of family i would use as a role model would be my uncle.
  • Absolutely not..but he was a great dad.:)
  • Not really.
  • no my father has not been. My grandfather was me and my sisters' male role model. He took life in his stride whereas any problems we had and referred them to our father for advice were immediately relayed back to our mother. I love him because he is my father. Unfortunately it was not in his make up to be a great role model.
  • Yes! But he would be the first to tell you about his short comings and warn you not to be like him. My Daddy loves his kids and has done the best he knows how which makes it easy for me to brag on him and say he is a wonderful people person, an honest debator, a skilled hard working mechanic, has big ole bicepts, a positive attitude on life, a lot of important knowledge for his grandkids and I could just go on and on!
  • I wish. I have never met him, but I guess that's better than a bad parent who is around.
  • Sadly no.............An intelligent brilliant man who happens to be lazy and lives off my mother.....Fortunately for some reason she is crazy about him and scaringly worships the ground he walks on which I will never understand in a million years...........with all that.....I do have unconditonal love for him but thats about all.
