After school, though, Cathy takes the two boys from football to basketball. Then she has to take her daughter to piano lessons. The tired children don’t get home until 7 pm.

  13. Section 2 While You Read The Taylors are like many American and British parents. They take their children from activity to activity, and try to fitas much as possible into their kids’ lives. Doctors say many children are under too much pressure. Teachers complain about teaching tired kids in the classroom. 他们把孩子从一个活动送到另一个活动。竭尽全力把孩子的生活填满。 在繁重的压力下。

  15. Section 2 While You Read Most children take part in after-school clubs. Activities include sports, language learning, music, and math classes. Pushy parents are nothing new, but now parents seem to push their children a lot more. Parents see other children doing a lot of things, and they feel their own children should do the same. 固执的家长们没有新的变化, 但是更多的家长把孩子们推向这些压力之下。

  17. Section 2 While You Read Linda Miller, a mother of three in London, knows all about such pressure. “In some families, competition starts from a very young age,” she says. “Mothers send their kids to all other children. It’s crazy. People shouldn’t push their kids so hard.” 人们不应该凶狠的把他们的孩子们推向这种压力下。

  19. Section 2 While You Read Dr Alice Green agrees. She also says that these children may find it hard to think for themselves when they are older. “Parents are trying to plan their kids’ lives for them. When these kids are adults, they might find it difficult to plan thingsfor themselves.” 这些孩子们就会发现当他们长大后要自己思考问题是多么困难的事。 家长们总是尽力为他们的孩子们计划事情。但是当孩子们成年后就回发现自己计划事情很困难。
