It is natural for every parents to be proud of their excellent children. Especially when many parents sit together, the comparison between kids is inevitable. Foreign parents know how this hurts the children, while most Chinese parents don’t. The comparison of children should be stop.
Take me for example. When I was very small, my mother sent me to learn dance class, because she hoped me could dance well. So when she communicated with other moms, she would ask me to dance in front of them. I felt so awkward, and just wanted to find a hole to dig in. These situation happened many time, until some day, I said to my mother how I felt about this and I did not like being compared. She realized the problem and stop doing it again.
Since my mother lets me go, I am so happy and live the way I am want. I no longer have pressure. Now I can do what I want and she understands me. Though I give up dancing, I do well in painting. My talent is painting and I have won many awards. This is the thing that my parents should be proud of.
