Speaking exercise

Original

I felt I should be more responsibility when I became a father when my daughter was borned. And another thing I realise is that I should earn much money for her. If you want to teach your kids buy better education, you have to pay much money on much things. On the other hand you must be ready to divide most of your spare time to raise her.

Every father should be more patient. Especially when you just got home and your kid starts to cry immediately. It’s very frustrating. Although it was very hard, you also can get much satisfaction and achieved because you’re raising a child.
