Speaking

I have been a father for about 6 years so I think being a father gave me a lot of happiness and has changed me a lot as well. I think first of all, to be a father made me responsible. I want to take care of my children well. But I have to spend much time and energy to be a good father. To look after them. There are lot of things to do. For example feed them, play with them, tell stories to them and take them outside to travel. I think those things make me know what is responsibility. That means a lot. If you want to be responsible, you have to learn how to care people. Secondly, I think be a father makes me willing to talk and improve my communicate abilities, because kids don’t know many words. They can only understand simple words, simple sentences. Sometimes you need to tell them a story to make them understand a complicated idea. From communicating with my kids, I’m improved my abilities to communicate well with others.
