孩子离家前要教会他的40件事情 - 木央 - 木央的博客
  As parents it’s our responsibility to teach, guide and encourage our kids. If we do our job right they go on to become responsible contributing members of society.
  作为家长,教育、引导和鼓励子女是我们的责任。如果我们尽职尽责,孩子们就会成长为对社会负责为社会做贡献的人。
  No pressure…right?
  这不是什么压力,对吧?
  Teaching practical life skills and philosophies are important parts of developing our children into well rounded and happy adults. The time we have with our kids is precious and relatively short.
  教授实际生活技巧和哲学是将孩子培养成全能且快乐的成人的重要部分。我们和孩子们共度的时光宝贵而短暂。
  With that in mind, I would like to share with you a list of 40 things that I will teach my kids before they leave home. Some are serious while some are lighthearted, since I think an important part of forming a meaningful relationship with our kids is to have a little fun along the way.
  记住了这一条,我想和大家分享我的孩子离家前,我会教他们的40件事。有些很严肃,有些很轻松,因为我觉得与孩子建立有意义的关系的重要部分在于过程中充满点滴乐趣。
  Practical life skills
  实际生活技巧
  I will teach my kids:
  我会教给孩子:
  …that doing a proper grocery shop, including meal planning, shopping with a list and comparing prices, can save them a considerable amount of time and money.
  合理购物,包括计划餐食、带着清单购物,货比三家,这可以为他们节省不少时间和金钱。
  …there is more to cooking and baking than simply opening a can or reheating a meal.
  烹饪烘焙可比开罐头或者热剩饭意义大得多。
  …that it’s important to sort your laundry not only by color, but by fabric type and care instructions.
  洗衣服时不仅按颜色分类,也按织物种类和保养指南分类,这很重要。
  …that no matter what the fashion is at the time, when it comes to an interview, work or special occasions — grab an iron. Walking around all wrinkled and creased sends a message of laziness.
  不论潮流如何,面试、工作或者特殊场合——找把熨斗。穿着皱皱巴巴的衣服,说明你很懒。
  …how to grow and care for a plant. This is a relatively easy and inexpensive way to instill responsibility. I’d start with an easy to care for houseplant like an umbrella tree or amaryllis or a potted tomato plant out on the deck.
  如何种植照料植物。这种灌输责任感的方法简单而又便宜。我会从易于照顾的盆栽如伞树或桂顶红或盆栽
