- Me: I'm almost done with my essay but I don't want to finish it.
- My boyfriend, trying to be encouraging: Nice, you should finish it and then edit it tomorrow.
- Me: Bold of you to assume I edit my essays.
My female role model that has inspired me is my mother. She inspires me because she was very
authoretive, Strong, and very Supportive. She was always there when I needed a lending hand and
when I just needed to talk. She was also a very loving person who everyone like and looked up too.
And when we did not agree on certain situations, we would still find away to laugh and talk about
everything and anything we could.
My mother was very authoretive. Authoretive parenting is a style that is characterized by high
responsiveness and high demands. My mother would always set boundaries and limits to make sure I
succeeded in my life. With this she set up to make sure I was happy/content, independent, as well as
self-reliant, develop social skills, and to be able to explore new environments without being afraid and
lastly she made sure I was competent and assertive. She also helped show me that I can have good
self-esteem, achieve in a higher education, and to have a better mental health; for instance, less
depression, anxiety, less suicide attempts and no drug use.
My mother was also the strongest women I have ever met. She always listened, admitted when she
failed, and did not give any empty threats. She always followed through with her disciplines as well as
carried them out when I was acting up and getting into trouble. When she knew she was wrong she
was the type to learn from it and apologize, she would always make sure to make it right. Lastly, she
would always listen when I needed a friend or just wanted someone to talk to. I hope someday I can
as half a mother as she was.
When it came to my mother, she always supported me no matter what. A supportive parent means
having that childs best interest at play and being present, involved, and being helpful. My mother
always was involved in my life no matter if it was sports, education or other activities. She also made
sure my needs were met as well. It is important to be a supportive parent because the influence that
parent has on the child can be more dependent in the trusting relationship than on dishing out
authorities and the lectures to give. It may seem they are pushing away but in reality, they are
pushing themselves away to choose a new direction in their life and to shape an identity for
themselves as a separate, independent person.
My mother was supermom, she was my role model because the way she loved and cared for me. She
loved me for me no matter what, she respected my feelings and concerns, and she gave me the best
protection from any mental and physical abuse. She was supportive, authoretive, and very strong. This
inspires me to one day be all that she was when I become a mother myself.
