Parents are anxious about their children?s education and should be more detached (超脱的)to allow them to develop naturally，a leading headteacher, Peter Tait, says． Writing in Attain，the magazine of the Independent Association of Prep Schools，Mr. Tait said： “While parents are determined to do the very best for their child ，they can end up doing the opposite．”He said parents need to exercise“common sense and parental nature”when it comes to raising their children． He added：“Parents also need to have confidence in those whose job it is to look after their children?s education．To do this requires a certain detachment，a willingness to trust the passage of time，focusing on whether their children are happy，challenged and purposeful and are learning the right values．If so，they will be fine．” However，he said，some parents are changing from“sensible”and“moderate(有节制的)”people， who have faith in their schools and teachers，and are“turning into fighters ready to battle with anything and anyone on behalf of?their?child． “What has made some parents put their own child at the centre of the universe and never to care about the rest?” And he also blamed the obsession(强迫 症)over league tables for some parents?anxiety． He said： “League tables have caused too much anxiety for parents and have led to a boom in the number of tutoring agencies as parents feel they have no choice but to give their children a chance．” Mr. Tait acknowledged that being a parent has become increasingly difficult ．He concluded： “While teachers may occasionally feel discouraged by over-sensitive and demanding parents，they should note that this parenting lark is rather more difficult than it used to be．” 19．Why does Mr. Tait say parents should be more detached?

Children in the United States eat too much pizza that some researchers now argue the food should join the ranks of sugary drinks and fast food for the harm they do to health． In a new study, the researchers found that pizza is a large source of calories, saturated fat(饱和脂 肪)and salt in children?s diets．Children should not eat more than two slices of pizza for a meal．and should pair that with salad, rather than with another high-calorie food，the researchers concluded． “Parents should aim to control pizza consumption(消费), particularly as a snack where it was shown to have a very adverse impact on children, and they should put their pizza dollars toward healthier brands．” said Lisa Powel, director of the Illinois Prevention Research Center． Pizza has become a matter of focus in recent years for researchers who look at the meals children eat, rather than the nutrients within them．Studies have found pizza is among the greatest sources of calories for children． “Since pizza remains a common part of children?s diet, we need to make ?healthy? pizza．”Powel said．To make pizza healthier, foo d producers should reduce its saturated fat and salt, and increase its whole grain content，she said． Whether or not pizza is harmful enough to be picked out as an unhealthy food, the study attracts attention to a larger issue with the modern American lifestyle, said Alexis Tindall, who was not involved in the flow research． Many foods arc eaten too frequently and in large sizes． said Tindall． To solve the problem, people don?t have to give up eating pizza, but instead, they can eat smaller and healthier pizza，she said． “Make it at home, instead of ordering it out where you don?t have any control over how it?s made．”Tindall said. “When we make it at home, we can choose healthier ingredients，increase the vegetables．reduce fat, and put in less cheese．Pizza doesn?t have to be just pepperoni(意大利辣香 肠)and cheese． ” 23．According to the research．children shouldn?t eat ． A．more than two slices of pizza in a day B．two slices of pizza for a meal C．more pizza with French fries D．pizza along with salad 24．The last sentence of the passage implies that pepperoni and cheese ． A．are not necessary ingredients of pizza B．should be reduced by adding healthier ingredients． C．should all be replaced with healthier ingredient． D．are not the o nly healthy ingredients of pizza 25．What is the best title for the passage? A．Pizza—a real junk food! B．How to prepare better meals for your kids? C．Bring in healthier pizza for Americans D．Discover the harm of eating pizza
Michelle Obama, Kate Moss and Samantha Cameron are three of the most stylish ﹙时髦的﹚ women on the planet because they have their daughters rather than their style. A new research has shown that women with daughters tend to be more stylish than mothers of sons; a fact partly because of the style advice their daughters offer as they get older.
78 percent of women over the age of 50 say they would be more than happy to let their daughters choose a complete outfit﹙全套衣装﹚ for them. However, just five percent of women say they would turn to their sons for style advice, while 28 percent believe that mothers of boys are less fashionable than women with girls. “Women who don?t have daughters become less interested in style as they grow older but having a daughter may keep alive her interest in looking great,” comments psychologist Honey Langcaster-James. “And, because of their close relationship, they also have a source of support and encouragement when it comes to their style decisions.” More than a quarter of women believe that Mums who have sons are less fashio n-conscious than Mums with daughters. The most common reasons for this are that daughters are mor e critical, offer good advice and inspiration, and add an element of competition to look the best while sons don?t seem to care and aren?t as strict as daughters. Interestingly, although mothers tend to rely on their daughters? style tips, their confidence isn?t reciprocated﹙互换﹚, with 40 percent of women between the age of 19 and 34 saying they wouldn?t allow their mothers to shop for them as what their mothers would choose for them would not be as good as they expected. And although they might not appreciate the fashion advice, the research, which was conducted by online retailer Gray & Osbourn, showed that daughters do still need their mothers with 71 percent saying they chat to their female parent every day. “In short, the research shows just how important relationships are between mothers and daughters,” added Langcaster-James, “and just how much women appreciate an honest and trustworthy opinion.” 26. The opening paragraph is mainly to show . A. girls influence their mothers? style decision B. women with children are often less stylish C. mothers like to follow their children?s advice D. boys are actually better advisors than girls 27. Which of the following may Langcaster-James agree with? A. Daughters usually love their mothers more than sons do. B. It?s hard for boys to get along well with their mothers. C. Mothers without daughters show less interest in style. D. Girls are more independent than boys in some ways. 28. It can be inferred from the passage that girls . A. show more interest in science than boys. B. care more about what their mothers wear C. can help a lot to solve family problems D. are good at encouraging other people 29. By saying “their confidence isn?t reciprocated” in Paragraph 5, the author means that . A. some women don?t like to choose clothes for their mothers B. some women aren?t sure what to wear when attending a party C. some women oft en show no confidence in themselves D. some women would not like to follow their mothers? style advice 30. What does the author mainly tell us in the passage? A. It confuses many parents how to talk with their kids. B. Daughters prefer to talk with their mums instead of dads. C. It is important for parents to respect their children?s choice. D. Mothers of girls are more fashionable than those of boys ACBDD
