        You cannot choose your family.Being born into a family is thefirst of many choices you did not make.They choose your name,they choose what you eat and wear,when to study,howto behave,and what to believe.They shape who you are,and for many,they shape who you become.And they choose your values,the code by which you live your life.Family Culture Shapes Who We Are(中考阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室
 
  Put all this together and you have a “family culture,”a culture you did not choose,but one you helped create.Every family culture is different,equally worthy and equally flawed.There are millions of families just like yours,but none are identical.Ask your classmate what makes his or her family special and it will be similar,but not the same.Would you want it to be?
  My own family is“normal”in some ways,and not in others.My parents,a teacher and a social worker,struggled to raise three children in a small village in rural England.Our loyal dog,Kylie,was our guardian as we explored fields and climbed trees.We had few cares,other than having to go to school.
  But what culture did we have?It was important to be respectful,to try(even if we failed,as we often did!),and to take responsibility for our actions and for each other.I guess our culture was simple:to live well and learn.We were far fromperfect, and at times I wished I had a different family,but that is perfectly normal.
  Former NBAstar Yao Ming was punished as a child for being dishonest,and so honesty is very important to him.Famous writer Mo Yan,born in Shandong,remembers a simple life;working hard and being nice to others.He thinks simple positive family values make good people.Maybe you agree.
  But there is no wrong or right;what is important for Mo Yan might not be for you.All families have their strengths and weaknesses.No family is perfect,but that doesn’t matter,as you cannot change them—remember,that choice was made for you.But at least you will always have a family around you.And someday you might look back at your family and think:“You know what,I wouldn’t have chosen differently.”
