My father

          Who do you look up to? Everyone has at least one person in their life that they look up to, or want to be like in the future. It could be someone famous with great skills, someone like J.K Rowling, a famous writer, or someone like Albert Einstein, who changed the world with his smarts. Hi, my name is Grace and today I will be telling you about who I look up to, and I’ll explain I look up to them. Personally, I look up to my dad the most, which might surprise some people as most people don’t appreciate their parents enough. The main reasons why I look up to him are because he is hard working, he is smart, and because he is supportive. He’s the best dad I could ask for, and I’ll explain why I’m thankful for him and why I look up to him, and why you should be thankful of your parents as well, as they most likely share the same traits.


I look up to my dad because he is hard working, and your parents most likely are as well, though you might not realize it. My dad works three jobs, as he is a real estate agent, sometimes a coder and he’s written a few books. I find the fact that he can work all these jobs to support our family pretty impressive. I find the fact that everyone’s parents are mostly able to work a job to support their own families impressive! This is especially after I tried working at newspaper delivering, and realized how hard it is to work a job. If you haven’t tried working a job before, you might not find it impressive, but I’m sure you’ll change your mind once you do, and find more respect for your parents.


My dad is smart. He is able to help explain my work to me, and he knows the answer to any question I ask him! I will need to read many books and absorb a lot of knowledge before I can become as smart as he is! He talks about how he studied so much in the past, and the ways he studied make me feel lazy! We really should be grateful that we live in a time where we can be lazy, and we don’t have to do so much work. I’m grateful for being born in this generation.


          Finally, my dad is supportive. I’ve already gone over how he works hard to support my family, but he also supports me emotionally. He encourages me to try new things, he helps me with my work if I don’t understand it too. He’s extremely supportive, as parents tend to be, and I appreciate this, though you might not and you might think that it is annoying. I’m thankful that he supports me in whatever I do, and I’m thankful that he helps me with my friendships, as he helped bring me and my friends together in the past.

          In conclusion, my dad is like both J.K. Rowling and Albert Einstein, as he is both a writer and he’s really smart! I look up to my dad because he is hard working, he is smart, and because he is supportive. These traits probably show up in your parents as well, but you might not appreciate it as much as I do. You might not look up to or appreciate your parents, but just know that you will in the future. You might hate your parents irrationally for now, but just know that you should appreciate them more. Appreciate them while you can, and be happy that you have great parents.

很喜欢读丫丫爸爸的文章,他总能把一些很复杂深奥的道理、观点和思想,通过活生生的例子,讲得明明白白,真正的深入浅出. -- John

谢谢丫爸真实生动的记载着每一个故事, 就像读日记一样,随着笔者的心境一起成长。 受益匪浅!关于投资的部分很多是我自己这么些年慢慢琢磨出来,但没有上升为理论。 很感谢你的无私分享,若早读到你的这么贴地气的分享,就会少走很多弯路! -- Mary




“一口气读完整本书,第一感觉是内容实际,笔调温馨。再回味一下, 更深的感受是丫丫爸爸对孩子浓浓的爱---- 可能我们每个父母都觉得自己特别爱孩子, 但真正的爱是陪伴, 是倾听, 是不随己意催逼打骂, 是有从天父上帝而来的温柔、忍耐、和智慧。为丫丫一家感恩。也愿我们这些做父母的可以从丫丫爸爸的分享得到提醒和鼓励, 好好照管上帝所赐的产业,让儿女在爱和真理中健康成长。愿主不断赐给你们全家新的祝福! --大立牧师

星期日的早上,一口气读完了所有章节,受益匪浅!感触颇多: 没有人天生就会做父母, 我们都是第一次做父母。合上这本书, 丫丫怕洗头、丫丫讲故事、丫丫被欺凌、丫丫赚零花钱等等一些细节历历在目, 父母在丫丫成长过程中的参与、介入、帮助、支持、放手都是那么的恰当好处, 不多不少刚刚好, 这个分寸的拿捏、这个火候的控制真的值得我们学习借鉴。陪伴孩子成长过程中、仅仅用心爱他 / 她们是远远不够的, 过火了容易溺爱, 严厉了又忍不住打骂。像丫丫爸爸一样, 首先学习做父母, 反思介入孩子成长的分寸、尺度, 做恰到好处的父母! --- Carrie
