Why I Respect My Parents
By Alexa Semonche
My parents are the only ones who can guide me through my childhood and future. Many experiences, losses,
and gains have passed through their life and by experiencing them, they can inform me and give me advice
for my many years to come. They are helping me climb the ladder of success, pushing and encouraging for me
to take one more step each time there's a splinter or tack. My mom and dad are people in my life that I can
trust and every dad are people in my life that I can trust and every day and support me more times that
anyone could ever count, and that's why I respect them.
My mom and dad make me feel special and I am very grateful for that, and many other things. They shower me
in love and tell me the truth, even if it isn't what I'm looking for. That makes me feel like I can put my
full trust in them. My parents shelter me from danger and make sure that I'm happy and well nourished. I
live in a large cozy house only because my parents are caring and loving and take great care of me. My dad
cooks wonderful meals that make me hungry from just staring at them and has passed his cooking techniques
to me, like to put the eggs in the frying pan before the cheese. My mom's chicken cacciatore is the best
thing I can east after coming home after day at school. My parents provide me with large amounts of clothing
that I love to wear and are just the right size. The school I go to and my music lessons are paid by my mom
and dad, and without it, I wouldn't have great food, a nice warm shelter, beautiful clothing, or an education
in academics, music, or Tae-Kwon-Do.
Sometimes their advice can be confusing, or even scary, but my parents have been through many things in their
life that I can count on encountering, such as embarrossment. I can look up to them for advice for school,
friends, or anything that's on my mind and bothering me. They don't lie to me and say that life will be easy.
The give me the real truth and I love that.
My parents are the ones who I can trust and believe in. They're my eyes when I can't see, my map when I'm lost.
I learn lots in just a day with my mom and dad telling me world events. I can tell that they love me and care
for me, and aren't just some old folks who don't know anything about the modern world. They know more that any
kid knows: more experiences. They are the only ones who can guide me through my life, and that's why I respect them.
