It was cute to see them seriously talk about it, and I thought that I should tell them a lot so that they can play basketball better. I saw them before they entered elementary school, so I just thought of them as ‘babies’, but yesterday I saw them play and I thought about it. Seeing how serious they were running, I immediately thought that I should teach them more seriously. I have been training twice a week. I will take more responsibility and work harder so that my children can grow well through basketball.
