“Good news mom! I was accepted to the college of your choice.”
As is clearly depicted in the above picture, a daughter tells his mother a piece of good news that she has been admitted to a university as her mother desires. There is no denial in saying that the cartoon leaves us such a deep impression that we can not help thinking over a question: What role should parents play in their children’s growth?
From my point of view, during the process of a child’s growth, the role of parents is mainly listed as the following two aspects. On one hand, there is no doubt that parents are liable to take good care of their children. On the other hand, in children’s personal growth, parents ought to play a role as a person who helps children develop self-dependence, which carries more significant to children’s future life. In other words, parents should encourage their sons or daughters to be independent rather than reliant on others.
To conclude, in children’s personal growth, parents are responsible to care for their children. However, considering that they will grow up and live their own life in some day, parents should enable their children to acquire the ability to be self-independent.（文都版）
The Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Education
The presented picture reflects a common trend in the way people are educated nowadays. In this picture, the mother is going to walk her son to school. But according to the son, he doesn’t really need to go to school since the phone in his hand already knows everything. The picture reveals the impact of mobile phone use on education.
Can mobile phone replace traditional class in school? I don’t think so. First of all, students can develop their own way and habit of learning under the guidance of the teachers, which can benefit their life-long learning. Secondly, every subject of education in school is systematic, such as Chinese, mathematics, science and philosophy. Education should not be considered as information fragments that we randomly collect on the mobile phones. Last but not least, students can have exact face-to-face communication with their teachers and classmates, which will help to cultivate their communicative abilities.
In conclusion, mobile phone use is a convenient way of obtaining information, but it is still necessary that we attend school to get formal education.
As is vividly depicted in the picture, there is a boy playing a phone happily at home, not wanting to go to school, with his father begging him to give up playing games and go to school worriedly. Furthermore, there is a caption under the picture, which reads "Why am I going to school if my phone already knows everything?" The drawer's intention seems to be highly self-evident and the meaning causes us to be thought-provoking.
Admittedly, phone plays an essential part in this information era. We should not, however, neglect the significance of learning independently. To begin with, learning independently is the tradition of our culture. Not only should we inherit from our ancestors, but also we should hand down to our descendants. It is the spirit of learning independently that makes us better and stronger. What is more, learning independently, one of the greatest fashionable themes of our era throughout the history of mankind all around the world that I have ever known in my whole life, which is the greatest that there ever was and the greatest that there ever will be, is momentous and fundamental to people what the soul is vital and significant to us. If it had not been for learning independently, we could not have been success.
Judging from the reams of evidence, it is safe for us to conclude that learning independently is a critical quality for success. Only if we acquire this quality and work hard toward our goals, can we achieve success.
