Speaking

My childhood is very happy. In traditional thinking of China, I am a only boy in my family so my grandfather and my grandmother really love me. In my parent’s position, my mum also love me. She always said, “you are pieces of me.” They don’t give me a lot of rules, sometimes when I want to buy some toys, even when they are expensive for them, they also buy it for me. She also bought a lot of different kind of model car for me. In this point, I really thank for them.

I think the children right now harder than us. Before November, I keep a serious attitude for my daughter. But, my wife told me “you needn’t do that anymore because your daughter is scared of you.” I should give her a happy childhood.
