In the show Two and Half Men, Jake looks up to and mimics the behaviors of his Uncle Charlie, even though his father Alan lives in the same home. I feel like it is pretty common for children to look up to an adult other than their parents. Sometimes parents aren't very "cool" in the eyes of their children, so kids want to follow in the footsteps of someone with a little more style!
When I was younger, I looked up to my older cousin, Susie. She is 4 years older than me, and I thought she was awesome. She always had the trendiest things, listened to the coolest music, and most of all, she enjoyed hanging out with me just as much as I did her, which made me feel very special! I still look up to my cousin. She is a great person and mother, and I don't think I could have picked a better role model for myself!
