I'm looking for a word describing someone of whom everyone in their family is proud of. I found golden boy, or golden girl. What else could I use?
Susan was a straight A student, she was very nice and never got into fights. Whenever I would get bad grades or my teachers complained about my behavior, my parents would ask me why couldn't I be more like Susan. Susan was the family's golden girl.
Up to now, I found:
outlier: someone very successful and unlike others in the group
Pride and joy
was suggested by one of the answers, and is closest to what I'm looking for.
Little Miss Perfect
is another phrase I found, though I think it carries a negative connotation.
