List Rules All of the accomplishments on the list must have been done by kids under the age of 10

When you think of a role model, you probably picture an experienced adult with wisdom and sage... someone who's seen some things and has racked up some serious experiences and accomplishments. You don't picture an eight-year-old rocket scientist or a four-year-old published author, right? Yet, the kids on this list are better role models than most adults out there, having accomplished things people never even dream of by the age of 10.   

You could call them child prodigies. You could call them merely products of passionate (or crazy) parents. But every child listed here was ten-years-old or younger when they achieved unheard of greatness. These kids can be considered positive child role models, or just straight up inspiring youngsters.

But how much of it is actual natural talent? How much of it is bossy, controlling parents? And how much of it is just a stunt? You be the judge. Vote up the kid you think is the most accomplished and most impressive! And all you future parents, take note!
