This one is a simple beginner Chinese essay about a student who did not perform well in the class, making his/her mother a little unhappy.
Today, after the parent-teacher meeting, my mother looked dull and unhappy. I asked carefully: "Mom, what happened to you?" Mom looked at me and sighed and said: "You didn't do well in summer homework, and your writing is poor. I think, maybe because of the little sister, that I haven't been paying as much attention to you during this time." As I listened, I hung my head in embarrassment.
Looking at my mother’s self-blame, I was particularly sad. I said to my mother, "Mom, don’t blame yourself. It’s not your fault, it’s that I haven’t worked hard enough, so please don’t be angry. From now on, I will definitely complete every assignment given by the teacher seriously and get good grades. Please believe me!" Mom stared at my eyes and said with my hand: "Good child, I believe you, let us work hard together!"
