What would you do if you were Monique?
Monique and Veronique are only two years apart, they are both mom’s darlings（心肝寶貝）. Monique can handle（處理）all schoolwork at a very young age while Veronique has learning disability（學習障礙）, so she is forever behind（落後）at school, and is very forgetful too. She has no idea what is going on, she seems to be in the dark（不知道） most of the time. No one compares the two sisters, it is only Veronique who always compares herself with her elder sister and is always frustrated（受挫）.
One time Monique tried to help Veronique with her mathematics homework, at times she understood, a t t i m e s , she made careless mistakes, at times she forgot the formulae（公式）. Monique tried and tried but that made Veronique infuriated（大怒）and broke into tears.
Learning disability can be out grown（年紀長大而減少） when one gets older. Perhaps my younger sister would be easier to teach at an older age and I had to give up（放棄）for the time being. I should be the one who throws a temper（發怒）and not her. My parents should get her professional（專業）help because I would be too amateur（外行）to handle this task.
I would try to feel her feelings. Not being able to understand quickly and forgetting about what one just understood must be very frustrating. I’d explain to my sister that God is fair, everyone has something unique（獨特）and I’d invite her to think about the things she excels（超越）at. Not everyone has to perform well at school. God loves us equally（相同地）and the most important is to accept our own weaknesses and be humble about our strengths. If teaching her was too difficult for myself, I’d say something else to distract（轉移） her from her depression（沮喪）.
