It's been all over the news, Thursday: another celebrity arrested for bad behavior.
Justin Bieber, 19, is accused of driving under the influence and resisting arrest. Officers say he also had an expired license.
When someone with such a strong media presence behaves like this, how can we make sure our kids are getting the right message?
Much like the Beatles, or more recent boy bands, Justin Bieber has sway with today's young people.
Countless fans, or "Beliebers", around the world watch his every move, including his nearly 49 million followers on Twitter.
A-list celebs like Bieber are watched by their every move, whether that move is good or bad.
"Celebrities are going to make choices and that's choices for them to make. We will have the same opportunity to make those similar choices. I think adults need to be mindful," Micah Schiller.
Stronghold Counseling Services' Dr. Jamie "JC" Chambers said this creates the perfect opportunity to touch base with kids about who their role model is, and why.
"That's what kids need from their parents. They don't need parents who are scared of that stuff. They need parents who can walk into it, talk with them, and hold their line," Dr. Jamie "JC" Chambers said.
From Hollywood to the football field, in a post-game interview with Erin Andrews, Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman lashed out over a move by another player.
Dr. Chambers said despite Sherman's educated background, his behavior doesn't model the values kids should be learning.
"I've met lots of kids who can separate fact from fiction, who can separate the drama from what's real, what's important, what's going to grow success," Dr. Chambers said.
"Parents need to be aware of what their kids are listening to, what they're watching on TV. It can be tough when parents work but talking with kids about that, talking to them about drugs and alcohol and tobacco usage, making it clear how you feel about it and that you aren't OK with it, making that clear to your kids," Molly Oien said.
A good way to begin the conversation is by asking children or teens and young adults who they look up to... and why.
