Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.***************************The definition of a good child differs between societies and cultures, but in my country an obedient and kind person would be considered as a good son or daughter.Parents always expect their children to obey them. No matter how old they are. They cannot bear their children's disobedience even if they are married. They interpret in most of their important decisions like choosing major, career or even marriage. I think nowadays children in most countries do not obey their parents like their ancestors. Since they become eighteen years old, they prefer to choose their own way and live based on their own criteria rather than their parents'. Experiencing conflict between my ideas and my parents', I mostly follow my parents. Although you would say I should make my own decisions but I think my parents would not mislead me. Also it satisfies me when I see they are happy around me.I usually try to treat kindly with my mother, the same behavior she showed when I was young and I needed her assist. She used to give love and kindness to me, and I think it is now the time for me to treat the same way. Everyday my mother calls and asks me to take her to buy fresh vegetables. I know that is easier for me to go shopping once a week, but when I see how happy my mother is when I take her out, I become happy too. I think if I behave kindly with my parents, in return my children would behave in the same way with me when I become old. I see most of my friends are behaving in the same way, so fortunately kindness is still considered a value in our society.Beside the effect of culture, time is other important factor is definition of values in a society. Kindness was considered not only a character of a good child, but also a character of a good person and it still remains as valuable as 100 years before. Children used to obey their parents and imply their opinions in their decisions, but nowadays most children make their own decisions without consulting.
