English horizons 第26期 总228期
Dear editor, I’m a senior high school student and I want to work part-time this summer .I think it is good to do so ,but my parents don’t agree with me .I just can’t understand them ,I need your help.
I think Lora wants to work part-time for these reasons. First , she can make some pocket money to meet pet needs and thus develop a sense of independence. Second, she can learn how to deal with various problems in the workplace . Third , she can build up new friendships and improve better social skills.
But her parents may regard learning as an increasingly important task for Lora. This holiday should be a catch-up time for independent study . Besides , personal safety may also be one of their major considerations .
My advice for Lora is this : make a detailed plan for her study and work ; ask her friends to work together with her and tell her parents she can manage things properly . I wish Lora a pleasant summer.
