I don’t know that I should admit this, but I am a huge reality TV fan. I loyally watch The Bachelor, The Voice and American Idol, but my favorite is Dancing with the Stars. This year, Sadie Robertson, member of the Duck Dynasty family, is a participant. I found it very interesting to learn that her father, Willie Robertson, approves her wardrobe before she performs, to make sure they are not too revealing. He even approves her dances beforehand to make sure they are appropriate for a teenage girl.
I am extremely impressed that he takes that strong of a role in his daughter’s life, and lets it be known openly on national TV. What impresses me the most is that Sadie also cares about what her dad thinks and sticks to his rules.
Often times, I worry about what the world will be like when my grand kids are grown. I hope they have role models like Willie and Sadie Robertson to help guide them along the way. I encourage you to all be good role models for the next generation coming into our industry.
