In your opinion, what are some of the qualities of a good parent? Use reasons and specific examples to explain why these characteristics are important.
In my opinion, encouragement and diligence are two important characteristics a good parent should have.
接下来只需要找出支持这两点品质的supporting details 并且在回答的过程中注意transitional words 的添加，我们的任务就完成了。而找到合适有力的supporting details 却不是一个容易的过程。接下来给大家一个sample：
First of all, encouragement can does a really useful part in children’s development. For example, when a child is afraid of going to the stage to perform, a good parent will encourage him to get over the fear and give him a warm hug. The child can get enough courage from this. Also, a good parent should be diligent. You know, raising a child isn’t an easy job. So parents should be hardworking to do all the housework and the clean up all the chaos created by their babies. Helping their children to form a good personality also costs them a lot of energy.

以上的这几个话题要求考生们对朋友所具备的品质和特性有所掌握，当然第二个题目也给出了一些提示：loyal, honest, humorous 都是描述朋友常用的形容词。除了这些，通过brainstorming我们还可以想到：
因此，我们的topic sentence可以说For me, a good friend should be supportive and humorous. Or, For me, a true friend ought to be thoughtful and generous. 当然，supportive和humorous 可以替换成任何描述朋友的形容词。
对于第一个主题句，接下来的supporting details可以这样来发挥：First, friends always have many things in common, in other words, they like to do the same things or have similar characters. So, it is no surprise that good friends always support you when you have to make choices. Even though having different ideas, a good friend can understand you and support your choice. Also, a humorous friend can always brighten you up. If you feel down or upset, it’s lucky to have a friend who can tell jokes for you or take you to do some funny things.
对于第二个主题句，可以用一下的话来支持它：First of all, a thoughtful and considerate friend can make you feel safe and comfortable. When you get sick or get hurt when playing sports, you will forget about the pain and suffering with the caring from your friends. A thoughtful friend also will consider your feeling and well-being when he does or says something in front of someone else. Secondly, a good friend can be very generous when you are in trouble or in need. We can see that many successful people got a lot of help materialistically and spiritually from their friend. Thus, a generous friend may be the key when you are heading for your success.
