答案. Writing : Throughout our life we are often faced with various challenges and difficulties. What should we do ? Many people think that " never give up" is a wise choice. They keep trying to reach their goals. They believe that success is waving to them around the corner as long as they have perseverance. However, others hold a different view that it is necessary to re-evaluate their old decision now and then if they want to keep up with the changing world. Sometimes it's wiser to give up in time. I think both their opinions sound reasonable. Whether to give up or not depends on what we are doing and how we are performing. It's important that we should have determination. Determination and diligence are key factors leading to success. However, if we find our goals are beyond our reach, it is better to give up and set a more realistic aim.

More and more parents are found babysitting these days. Not friends' kids or even nieces or nephews. No! What they are watching are virtual pets. Those key chain size babies that need to eat and sleep and you know, every few minutes. Apparently parents cannot seem to say no when their children make unreasonable requests. This may be a good time to explain to your children what fads are. Businesses often exploit the way fads encourage children and parents to spend money or do something just because "everyone" is doing it. I think that taking care of your child's virtual pet is even more ridiculous than the "pet" itself. I also think that parents, in spite of your complaints, must actually be enjoying this fad ! Otherwise, you would figure out a way to deactivate (使..失灵)the virtual pet during the hours the child . could not be responsible to care for it. After all, it is your child's pet, not yours. One reason we give children pets is to teach responsibility . I seriously doubt if any child is learning anything about responsibility , if Mom watches it every time the child is busy. Consider giving your child a chance to use his brain more creatively. Encourage him to use his imagination to create a unique "pet rock" from a smooth stone or rock. Give him paint, glue, pipe cleaners, scrap material or fur, buttons, or even a few feathers from a feather duster. His pet rock may mean more to him than a virtual pet, because he created it himself. He can even make several unusual pet rocks, and give them to others for Christmas. Now is actually the time to start planning for Christmas gifts that children can make for others. There is really no other way for them to understand that Christmas is the spirit of giving, not getting! Making gifts for others teachers children generosity, pride and responsibility.
  1. What's the purpose of parents' giving their children virtual pets? It's to teach children responsibility .
  2. What does the author think of parents' taking care of their children's pets? He doubts its function in teaching children responsibility.
  3. The writer suggests children's creating pet rock by themselves because it gives children a chance to use brains more creatively.
  4.The new way for children to exchange Christmas gifts is more significant because it teaches children generosity, pride and responsibility
