It’s Mother’s Day today. It’s a special day, isn’t it?
I think we should do something to show our love to our mothers on this special day. My mother and I are good friends. Whenever I meet with difficulties, she is always there, ready to help me.
Today I will make a beautiful card for her, with my thanks and best wishes on it. Then I will help her wash the car this afternoon and cook her favourite food in the evening. Besides, I’ll take a walk with her after dinner and then play chess with her, for she likes it very much. I’m sure she’ll be very happy.
What’s your plan for Mother’s Day? I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

How to keep a good relationship with parents
In my opinion, I have too many rules at home. My parents never allow me to go out with my friends at night. They don’t allow me to choose my own clothes, either. And they pay too much attention to my exam results. I think my parents don’t quite understand me.
However, I try my best to understand them. Although they don’t allow me to make my own decisions and give me too much presure, I know that it is because they really love me and want me to have a bright future.
In order to keep a good relationship with my parents, I study hard and listen to them. I talk with them as friends, and always tell them my troubles. I also help them do some housework.
I am Li Hua. I am in Grade Nine this year. My life has changed a lot in the past few weeks.
I used to get up at seven in the morning. But now I get up at six and read English for half an hour every morning. I used to watch TV and go to bed at 9:30 in the evening. But now I have to keep doing homework until 11:00 in the evening. I used to play tennis in my free time. But now I have to spend all my free time studying.
I really miss my old days.
