They feel h eavy pressuresfrom their parents. Most students are always told by their p arents to study harder and better so that they can have a wonderful life in the future. Though this may be a good idea for those very bright students, it can have terrible results for many students who are not gifted enough.

Such students felt that they are hated by everyone else they meet and they don? t want to go to school any longer. They become dropouts. It is surprising that though most Japanese parents are worried about their children, they do not help them in any way. Many parents feel that they ar e not able to help their children and that it is the teachers? work to help t heir children. To make matters worse, a lot of parents serif their children t o those schools opening in the evenings and on weekends — they only he lp the students to pass the exams and never teach them any real sense of t

Si nce I believed that a long night was waiting for me ahead, I had no choice but to bring a TV into his room to kill off the hours until dawn. I was sur prised that the moment I turned on the TV the baby became quiet right aw ay and fixed his little eyes brightly on the screen. Not willing to waste an opportunity for sleep, I then tiptoed out of the room, leaving him to watch the boring TV programs. I heard no more of the baby? s crying that night and the next morning wh en I went into his room, I found him still watching TV by himself. I found there was a metaphor(暗喻) in my baby? s behavior(行 为) for the new generation. When I gave my boy some books to go over, he only spit upon them; when I read to him, he did not feel comfortable. And so it is in the schools with my students. I find that our students don? t read and they look down upon reading and make light of those of us wh o teach it. All they want to do is watch TV. After this experience with the
baby, however, I have drawn a conclusion: “Let them watch it!” If televisi on is that much more attractive to children than books, why should we fig ht against it? Let them watch what they want！ 1. Why did the father bring a TV set into his son? s room? A. To enjoy some interesting programs together with his son. B. To help himself pass the long hours ahead of him. C. To help his son fall asleep sooner. D.To keep his son from making noises. 2. The baby seemed to be ______ at the sight of the TV set. A. excited B. surprised C. bored D. pleased 3. This experience with his baby helped the father ______. A to know his baby better B. to know better how to educate his students C. to change his opinions towards TV D. to know better about the new generation Habiba keeps a record of new words and expressions in English.

Please give me an example.” “For example, I offer you some cake. The tr uth is, you don? t like my cake. You don? t say that. Instead, you say, ?No , thanks. I? m not hungry.?
