and explain what you feel about this child.

Model Answer:

I love being around children since they are nothing but some bundle of joy. So, thank you indeed for this lovely cue card topic which allows me to talk about a child – a boy rather - whom I have known since the last couple of years.

The boy, I am talking about, is 4 or 5 years old, who happens to live in the same neighbourhood as me. Being a little bit on the chubby side, this little boy can be too cute and sweet to be ignored by any person, no matter how stranger of a person he or she really is.

The parents of this little boy are very much aware of his “friendly manner”, so they just let him be just the way he likes. Since both I and the boy live in the same neighbourhood, we meet and say hello to each other at least a couple of times a week when his parents take him to a local park where I also like to take a walk from time to time. One thing which really puzzles me about this boy is that this little boy never allows anybody to touch his hair. Yes, he is that serious about his hairstyle!

By the way, the parents of this little boy are also helpful persons. In fact, they helped me fix my car on a number of occasions since I, as a woman with very little technical IQ, don’t know much about how to fix an old car. In return, I have also shown them the courtesy to do babysitting for their boy a few times when they had gone away for some emergency needs.

I think that this little boy is a really sweet kid who never seems to know how to bother or annoy other people. Besides, I also feel that the parents of this little kid have raised him really well because I have never found him talking to other people or asking them any questions without asking for their permissions first.

One cannot live without a family, and even if we notice deeply, we could see that familial bonding is also found among animals.

In my family, I admire my father most. He is the key person in our family and maintains the family in a solid way. He is my hero in my life. My father is truly an a
