Be good children is extremely difficult. The children must listen to every word when the parents are trying to teach them, but the parents’ words often are not reasonable to the children because the children have not enough experience to live a life in society; Thus, the children do not want to listen to their parents, and sometimes they will against back to their parents. Are there any children who against back to their parents will become good? I have seen that is one of the reasons to cause the children to become bad. Therefore, I try as much as to listen to my parents when they try to teach me something. And the most important lessons I learned from my parents are hard-working and honest.
A hard-working characteristic is hard to be performed. Its characteristic is only for people who want to succeed in the future. If a person who has a hard-working characteristic, he or she can easily to succeed if he or she does something. For example, when my family was in Vietnam, we were very poor. My father had to ride a tricycle to earn money to support for the family from six A.M. to eight P.M. Why would he take a paint to do that kind of hard drive? He wanted himself and us to have a better life in the future. However, when the fall of 2003 have begun, I learn very badly, especially my math subject. I failed the first two tests, and I didn’t want to drop the course. Then I have to try much harder to pull my grade up like my father tried hard to ride the tricycle, and I have finally pulled it up to a C.
Another characteristic that is hard to be performed is honesty. A person without honesty, it would cause anything. It would cause him or her to lose a job, and it would cause no one want to believe in him or her anymore. For example, when my father rode tricycle to bring people from this location to the other location, he took the same rate like the other tricycle man. He once said me that if he took more expensive than the regular price and people know, he would have lost the job. Therefore, when I do anything, I would not dare to lie to others. For instance, if I take a test, if I know, I write down, and if I don’t know, I don’t write down because I don’t want to get caught if I copy. Then I might be expelled from the university.
In conclusion, there are two characteristics that I learned from my parents are hard-working and honest. Moreover, with those two characteristics in hand, I can go anywhere, do anything, and if I were in any situation, I would have tried to work hard on things that I must do, and I would not have lain to people. One day, I would have raised myself up to have a better life.
