period 1 welcome to the unit
it is natural that young people are often uncomfortable(不舒服) when they are with their parents. they say that their parents don’t understand them. they often think that they are too serious and too strict with their children; and that they seldom give their children a free hand.
it is true that parents often find it difficult to win their children’s trust and they tend to(倾向)forget how they themselves felt when young.
for example, young people like to act without much thinking. it is one of their ways to show that they have grown up and they can face any difficult situation. older people worry more easily. most of them plan things ahead, at least in the back of their minds, and do not like their plans to be upset by something unexpected.
young people often make their parents angry about their choices in clothes, in entertainment(娱乐) and in music. but they do not mean to cause trouble; it is just what they feel to cut off from the older people’s world into which they have not been accepted. that’s why young people want to make a new culture of their own. and if their parents do not like the music or entertainment or clothes or their ways of speech, this will make the young people very happy.
sometimes you are so proud of yourself that you do not want your parents to say “yes” to what you do. all you want is to be left alone and do what you like. but if you plan to control(控制) your life, you’d better win your parents over and try to get them to understand you. if your parents see that you have a high sense of responsibility(责任感), they will certainly give you the right to do what you want to do.
