All too often, the child stars we know and love turn out to be not-so great role models. They turn to drinking, drugs, partying, and attention seeking. While many child stars experience this downfall, there are still a handful of stars that won our hearts when they were little, and continue to show that not all child stars will end up with scandals to their name. These child stars who are great role models grew up gracefully and remain to be proof that even the young and famous can grow up to lead normal lives or remain in the public eye and be successful celebrities.
1. Hilary Duff
While most Disney Channel stars grew up to be questionable role models, Hilary Duff grew up to be one of the great role models your child can look up to. She grew up in front of our eyes on her show “Lizzie McGuire” and turned into a beautiful young woman. She starred in many great movies after her time at Disney Channel like “Raise Your Voice” and “The Perfect Man.” In each of these movies, she played respectable young women who taught a valuable lesson. She made sure that her younger audience would not be disappointed or let down by her roles. She eventually got married and had a child of her own, all without any major Hollywood scandal or compromising her dignity.
