When my friend had a sister, I began to think about being an only child for the first time. I thought, “Would I like to have brothers or sisters?” But to be honest (诚实的), my friend's sister looks quite annoying (令人讨厌的), and I think it's better to be on my own. Then I can have enough time to be with my parents. It's wonderful.
One of the bad things about being an only child when you're young is the reaction (反应) you get from other people. They think you're spoilt (宠坏的) — you see that look in their eyes. And then you have to make them believe you're not.
I began to go to school when I was seven, and the most difficult thing I found was making friends. Because I was an only child, I just didn't know how to do it. When you're an only child, you always grow up without any other children around you.
I know some only children feel uncomfortable because of their parents' demands (要求) and worries, but that wasn't my experience. I found being an only child wonderful, and I think it is mainly because I get on well with my parents. I've got two children now and I do find it is scary (吓人的). Nothing in my past has prepared me for caring for these two little people, and I become sad when I can't give them enough care.

Many years ago, I was a shy boy and lived a very peaceful life. I liked school but I felt bored.
And then I started the fourth grade. My teacher, Mrs Gerlip, was a young woman who was good at writing, art and music. Her class was very interesting. With her help, I started Fun Club with some boys in my class. I also wrote a book called Through the Forest. And lots of my classmates liked it.
However, I was surprised when fifty years later I got a letter about a reunion (聚会). A few days before, we had a reunion at Mrs Gerlip's home. Reconnecting with Mrs Gerlip was a journey back in time. Fifty years have passed, but my teacher still remembers every student. She even doesn't forget the class bully (欺负) — a boy often hit me with snowballs on my way to school. Lots of teachers thought bullying was nothing serious at that time, but Mrs Gerlip didn't agree. She put a stop to it at once when she found out about it.
Now, in my mid-fifties, I appreciate the gifts Mrs Gerlip has given me even more. It's never too late to say thanks to this fantastic teacher. I hope you are lucky enough to have one teacher like Mrs Gerlip.
