Unlike the family descibed in the text, my family as four people in my family: My father, my mother, my younger sister and I. My mother is an English teacher, she works quite far from home so that she has to go to work very early in the morning. My father is a doctor. He is very busy everyday, sometimes he has to work on a night shift, the same with the mother in the passage. In spite of being very busy with their job, my family always spend time together, especially at weekend. My parents take me and my sister out for dinner, and we also go to the cinema to watch some interesting movie.
My biggest goal this time is to pass the entrance exam of the university, so that I have to spend lots of time learning. However, my sister and I join hands to help my parents to do houseworks and cook meals when they come home late. The gaps between my sister and I is quite big, so we not very close-knit, but we love and always willing to help each other every time.
I do not spend much time talking with my parents about problems, and we all busy everyday. However, we spend time together as much as possible to build-up the family’s relationships between members.
