Before I go on a vacation, I always plan my trip very carefully. I usually go on online to look up all the necessary information on the internet. Because I don’t trust the descriptions in the guide books or what the travel agency tells me. To begin with, I look up possible destinations and compare them carefully to see which one best suits my needs. Then, I check the cost of travelling to that particular place. If I am going by plane, then I have to compare the prices of the different airlines in order to get cheapest tickets. If I am travelling by train, then I have to look into train passes or special train ticket office. I seldom travel by buses， because of the high rate of traffic accidents on the high way. I also need to check hotels. Usually I choose to stay cheap hotels. Finally I try to plan how much I need spend on meals and sightseeing. If I plan carefully, I can usually have a good time for the lowest cost.

From the picture we can see a family of three walking on a long red carpet. The son, well dressed, waves proudly in the middle while the father behind bends forward to hold the jacket and the mother in front rolls out the carpet, sweating.
It shows a common phenomenon nowadays that children are the focus of families, shouldering the hope of their parents. Parents arrange everything for their children and spare no effort to pave the way for their success. As a consequence, children become so reliant on their parents that they have no independent thought or creative ideas.
Such a situation is of great concern. In my opinion, overprotection and too much care are extremely bad for children's development. Instead of doing everything for them, parents should encourage their children to overcome difficulties and inspire them to develop by themselves. Only in this way can they grow up to be independent and become truly successful.
