Yes Lindsay Lohan is a bad role model no matter how you look at it. If Lindsay Lohan had made some mistakes, realized she made some mistakes, seek treatment, and turned her life around (like Demi Lovato did) that's one thing. Then I could see where you're coming from but Lindsay Lohan doesn't fall under that category. Lindsay Lohan continue to make mistakes and clearly have no regard for life. Whether or not her parents is the reason behind her troubles is really kind of irrelevant at this point. Lindsay Lohan is an adult, so she is responsible for her own actions. Just because a child didn't have a normal life and/or the proper care, love, and support of their parents doesn't mean they have the right to break the law. Bottom line is that Lindsay Lohan is a bad role model.
That being said, I do agree with you that her parents are probably the main reason behind Lindsay Lohan bad behavior. Had Lindsay had the right amount of love, support, and discipline as a child perhaps she may have had a better adult life. As you mentioned, Lindsay Lohan parents (especially her mother, Dina) was more focus on making money off of Lindsay Lohan instead of being the loving, caring, and nurturing parents they should have been. It is extremely hard on a child when they don't have the love, support, and discipline of their parents and it's even worse when the child is in the Hollywood life because that is a cruel and mean lifestyle (with all the paparazzi, the media, the drama, etc.) and no child should have to go through that especially without loving and supporting parents by your side, so I agree with you fully that Lindsay Lohan parents are probably mostly to blame for her troubles but as I mentioned earlier that is irrelevant at this point because Lindsay Lohan is an adult now and she should have handle her issues in a mature way in instead of acting out and getting involved in bad scandals and legal trouble and unfortunately due to her years of drug, alcohol, and legal trouble Lindsay Lohan appearance and reputation have been permanently damaged and no matter what she say and/or do her appearance and reputation will forever be damaged and sadly due to her bad appearance and reputation no movie directors want to hire her for their movie, so doing Playboy, adult films, and little modeling jobs here and there is really the only way for her to bring in money. Lindsay Lohan was a beautiful and talented young actress and singer but now due to her years of drug and alcohol abuse she will never be as successful as she used to be and that is truly so sad. Bottom line is that yes Lindsay Lohan is a bad role model for anyone especially little girls. Hope I helped. Have a nice day! Bye! :-)
