Meet The Role Models
Facts of Life
Almost 75% of high school students say they get along “very well” or even “extremely well” with their parents or guardians, a new survey finds. The Horatio Alger Association polled 1,055 high school students last spring; results were released in August. Asked how they like to spend their time, the teens chose “being with my family” more than any other response. Teens also put family members atop their list of role models, far ahead of entertainers and athletes. And more than nine in 10 said they have at least one family member they can confide in.
