The Right to Do

做事的权利

It is natural that young people are often uncomfortable when they are with their parents. They say that their parents don't understand them. They often think that their parents are out of touch with modern ways; that they are too serious and too strict with their children; and that they seldom give their children a free hand.

年轻人同父母在一起的时候常常感觉不舒服,这很自然。他们说父母不能理解他们,常常认为父母跟不上现代生活方式,对待孩子太严肃,太严格,很少放手让他们做自己的事。

It is true that parents often find it difficult to win their children's trust and they tend to forget how they themselves felt when young.

的确,当父母发现难以贏得孩子的信任时,往往容易忘记他们自己小时候的感觉。

For example, young people like to act on the spot 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 their minds, and do not like their plans to be upset by something unexpected.

比如,年轻人喜欢说干就干,不假思索。这是表明他们已经长大,能够面对任何困难的方式之一。年纪大些的人更易忧心挂虑,他们大多数人会事先把事情计划好,至少在心中盘算好,而不喜欢让自己的计划被 突如其来的事情打乱。

When you want your parents to let you do something, you will have better success, if you ask before you really start doing it.

当你想要父母放手的时候,如果你事先征得他们的同意,那么你会做得更加成功。

Young people often make their parents angry with their choices in clothes, in entertainment and in music. But they do not mean to cause any trouble; it is just that they feel cut off from the older people's world, into which they have not yet been accepted. That’s why young people want to make a new culture of their own. And if their parents do not like their music or entertainment or clothes or their ways of speech, this will make the young people extremely happy.

在选择衣服、娱乐方式、音乐节目方面,年轻人常常惹父母生气。但是他们并不是有意找麻烦,只是因为他们觉得自己与长辈的世界隔绝了,没有融入其中。这就是为什么年轻人想要创造一种属于自己的新文化。如果父母不喜欢他们的音乐、娱乐、衣服或说话方式,这倒使他们非常开心。

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. It is natural enough, after being a child for so many years, when you were completely under your parents’ control.

有时候,你并不想让父母对你所做的事说“行”,并以此感到自豪。你只想自己不受干扰,随心所欲。这再自然不过了,因为你小时候一直受着父母的严格管束。

If you plan to control 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, they will certainly give you the right to do what you want to do.

如果你想控制自己的生活,你最好能说服父母,设法让他们理解你。如果你的父母看到你有很强的责任心,他们肯定会放手让你去做想做的事情。
