My seven-and-a-half year old daughter is crazy about Hannah Montana - aka Miley Cyrus. She has all her albums, watches the family channel show religiously ( over and over again), and tapes it too. Her dream is to become a famous singer. Miley Cyrus has been on tour recently, but unfortunately her tour did not include a date in our Canadian city, and this disappointed my daughter tremendously. I like the story I heard about Billy Ray Cyrus auditioning for the role of her father on the show to avoid being separated from his daughter after she won the role of Hannah Montana. The father and daughter appear to have a really close relationship. I think that at least on the surface, she appears to be a better role model than most of the young celebrities today. What do you think? Is Miley Cyrus an acceptable role model for young girls today? Is your daughter crazy about Miley Cyrus too?

My sister is 10 years old and she loves Miley Cyrus. Compared to all those other girls out there on TV, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, or even Vanessa Hudgens which was on the hit Disney Musical, High School Musical, I love her and I think she is the perfect role model. It's nice to see she was a wondering, caring father that's in the same business as her and that will protect her from that celeb status that everyone else is run down by. I think Miley Cyrus is the next big thing for these kids growing up now, and I also think she sends a very good message to kids growing up today in her music and her show.

Yes, I concur that Miley Cyrus by far seem to be the best of the bunch! I also think she seems well grounded and her relationship with her Dad seems to really make the difference!

Miley Cyrus is a great role model. She is the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus and has a great family relationship. The entire family has been on the set and really supports her career.

That's great, I didn't know the entire family supported her, though it seemed that at least she had a good relationship with her dad. I guess how she comes through the teen years will be the test, though. I wonder if any child, regardless of how wonderful her parents are, can successfully navigate to a normal and well-adjusted adulthood when they are a child star?
