When it comes to family I was raised to be respectful of others but still speak my mind if I had an opinion. I was also raised to respect women which is something you do not see often in American culture anymore. I was taught that I am supposed to open a door or give up my seat to a woman. As a kid you do these things because this is the way we are taught; one you grow up you realize that showing people respect is the right thing to do so you continue doing it. The biggest influence my family had on me was teaching me the value of kindness and the power of knowledge.

The many principles that my parents have taught me is to be outgoing, but most importantly an educated person, for allowing me to become what I am today, a respectful mature young lady. Both of my grandparents raised my own parents when being young kids into having discipline, responsibilities and obligations. Back in the day, the years were different and it required a lot more education/principles. Education has been one of the most maybe top five of me, my character. Since what I remember by parents always taught me the right path, not wrong, they always tried to fix my mistakes so I wouldn 't repeat them or make myself look bad in front of other people.
It was not easy for them to bring us in this world .They provided shelter, clothes, and medicine whatever we needed at that time; also they provided education, and teach us how we could survive in this world. Parents always try to make their children able and they want to see them a successful person. Sometime parents even kill their own desire and happiness to make their children successful. Therefore, they have right to expect something from their children in their old age. Our parents sacrifices a lot of things for us in their life so, children can show their love and gratitude for elderly parents by taken care of them.
