i'm the only child in my family, the apple of my parents' eyes. my mother and father take good care of my and give me a lot of support throughout my life.
my father is the manager of a company and my mother is a teacher. they are both well educated and do well in their jobs. they know that knowledge is power. father often communicates with foreign friends and is good at english. i can learn a lot from him,
especially english. his oninion on education is as advanced as that of my mother's. they often give me advice on my studies but never interfere in them. they seldom force me to do what i don't like to. they permit me to have different opinions. if something is good for me, they will persuade me to do it as they want. many people of our age say that there is a generation gap between their parents and them. however, it doesn't exist between us.
my mother is a math teacher. she is very clever and good at teaching. she can work out a problem within 10 minutes which would cost me 2 hours. i envy and admire her. i want to be a math teacher like her.
i'm lucky to have such enlightened parents. i'm lucky to have been brought up in such a happy family.
