Now that the Prince George has arrived the speculations about whom William and Kate will choose as godparents has begun. Members of the royal family traditionally have six godparents, three being women and three being men. Many are placing bets that William’s bother, Prince Harry and Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton will be among the chosen, but no one can be sure. Both Harry and Pippa are already closely related to Prince George so William and Kate may fill the six godparent roles with those who they wish to forge ties with. Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine dished to People, “Godparents don’t have to be your best friend. Quite often it is quite the opposite, it can be somebody quite random. Prince George’s christening is set to take place in the fall so speculations will likely continue until then.
How do you select role models for your new arrival?
With a new baby come new responsibilities, such as choosing what kind of people to share your bundle of joy with. Cupid has some advice about how to go about selecting roles models for your new arrival:
1. Keep them positive: Growing children are extremely impressionable, so try not to keep any ‘Negative Nancys’ too close. If your child grows up hearing “I can’t,” or, “I’m not good enough to do that,” then the thought will likely rub off on them.
2. Be a role model: As a parent you’ve the one who your children will look up to most. Be your best you and your kids will strive to reach the bar you set.
3. Let them have a say: Each child is different; therefore the role models that each child needs will be different. You and your partner should consider your child’s likes and personality when trying to pick out roles models for them.
