Nothing is as important to me as my family. From them, I learned everything that is important. I learned about trust, ambition, and love. Your family is with you forever. They are not going to leave you because they find another daughter they like better. They are not going to leave you because they think you are too much trouble. A family is permanent, while friends come and go. Your parents are your role models. They will encourage you to do your best, to push yourself, and to improve yourself. Friends want you to stay the same; they don't want you to be different. A family is ambitious for you. Friends are not. Your family teaches you about love. A family's love is not judgmental. They love you for everything you are. Friends may love you because you have a new car or because you go out with them on Saturdays. A family loves you. Friends only like you. Without my family, I wouldn't know what to do. I wouldn't feel as secure. I might not have the ambition to go to school. I probably would be afraid to love. My family is my greatest influence. ［托福参看范文之二］ It is true that both of the family and friends play important roles in influencing young adults, and it is really hard for us to tell which is the most important influence. In my opinion, the family plays the most important role. When a young child is born, he is brought up by the family not by his friends, and a child has the keener sense in learning than a older one. I think the family can mold the child in the following ways. Firstly, the family is the first school a child should enter.There he learns and is taught how to learn.It is safe to say that the character of a person is determined in his childhood, and when it is the family which to make the determination.
Secondly, a good family will afford good education for the child. Now more and more Chinese family realize the importance of education,some even make thire children study in foreign countries.All this is unchoosable for the child,that is, the family has the undeniable influence on the young adult. Thirdly, when the child is in his young adult, the family still plays a important influence on him. For instance, I always feel the expectation of my parents and struggle to favor them. Which is a hard work, but I still think it is naturally that I, as a son, should meet the expectation of them. Thus, the family is really a strong influence on the young. I make the family the important influence doesn't deny that the role of friends on the young adults. Only that friends' role is not as important as the family.
