Sample Answer:
I was born in a nuclear family in Milan, Italy and thus did not have the chance to see and meet intimately with the other relatives or family members of my family. I just saw my parents and siblings with me. But they were really careful about me and I enjoyed a huge number of benefits from them in my childhood. This is a nice cue card task for me. I would love to answer the remaining questions.

I took the usual foods in my childhood. I loved the breakfast and lunch but was reluctant to have my dinner. In the breakfast, used to take a juice or milk and some cookies. Sometimes, I used to take cakes as well instead of cookies. But the routine was different in the holidays. Taking pasta during the lunch was my habit. Sometimes, it was altered by roasted potatoes and meat. I never liked fishes. But mom used to force me in having the fishes for supper. Sometimes, I took pizza instead of fishes.

It was a small family. There were no external members to look after me. But my elder siblings were kind to me and they helped me greatly. In fact, my elder sister was the representative of my mom in her absence. She used to take care of me. She prepared me for the school, often fed me in supper and did many other activities that I will remember always.  

Outing with my family members in the weekends in the attractive spots of Milan was the most enjoyable thing for me. In those evening, I used to take part in various types of activities. Besides, watching the cartoon shows was the other important and enjoyable task for me. Alas! The days are gone and I miss my childhood.

Your preparation for the cue card topic - "Describe a  typical day in your life when you were a child." would help you to talk about the following topics as well:

1. Describe something memorable from your childhood days.
2. Talk about how you passed a typical childhood day.
3. Describe a childhood memory.
