An Exercise in Role Models

I am returning to the world of writing - the joy of the written form of voice and expression.  My first attempt to write an essay that focuses upon  the topic of "role models" is below.  Role Models... for me, this is a topic of great significance as I believe that it is through modeling that we teach our children, demonstrate love, and exhibit the person that we are.  Our actions speak louder than our words - though ideally our words and actions aline with integrity.  
So here is a paragraph:
They are a mirror image of one another; not in looks but in behavior.  Their actions reflect in perfect harmony.
Like Mother; Like Son.  
A study in nature and nurture with nurture proving to be of greater significance.  
Though "Do as I say, not as I do" might never have been said, its consistency is apparent in her parenting as it is in his.

Hi TE .. good to see you back writing ... and yes our actions and words should preferably line up and match each other .. we hope to set examples as adults to many .. our own, and others and to the world in general ..

Like mother, like daughter in my case! Cheers Hilary

Also glad to see you back! (I love reading true essays... only wish I had more time to devote to them.)

Looking forward to reading your completed piece on role models!
