Follow-up Questions:

Describe your childhood.

What are the responsibilities of parents to help the children grow up properly?

 

Sample:
My grandfather had been the father of six children and later on when they became parents, the family grew up quite large. In our joint family there are several children and among them, the youngest boy of my elder sister is the one I'd like to talk about. He is 4-5 years old and is my most favourite nephew. His name is Abraham and I call him Nir. I still remember the day he came to this world and I chose to name him Abraham. He lives with his parents in a different city and they visit us almost 3-4 times each year.

From his childhood, he was very cute and adorable. I loved him very much and because of my affection towards him, he became very fond of me. I usually see him with an interval of 3/4 months and each time I get the feeling that he has grown up more.

We often play hide-and-seek and cricket together with other people and kids. He loves to listen to the ghost stories, adventurous stories and fairy stories. While their stay at our home, he stays with me at night and I tell him bedtime stories. We often go to walk in the field, go to open places like parks, near river and forest. He likes ice-cream and I buy him chips, ice-creams and chocolates. He loves sweet and hates to eat any pungent food. I often cuddle him, make fun with him and play with him.My affection and love for him are very profound and I love to spend time with him.

 

To give identity of the kids and to give details mention the following points:

His/ her name.

Parents' names & relationship with you.

How old the kid is.

How s/he looks.

How he interacts with you

How you treat him/her.

Part 3

1. How can (or, how do) young people learn to manage their financial affairs?

Generally, I suppose they learn from their parents as the first example. If their parents are very careful and manage their finances well, then young people will probably adopt some of their parents’ habits, if not all of them. 

On the other hand, if parents are very free and easy with their money and don’t plan or save anything, it’s likely that their children will have a similar attitude unless somebody else shows them a different approach. I suppose sometimes children may learn about managing money at school, but I don’t think all schools teach it as a skill. Or maybe they will be a part of a promotional activity by a financial institution and learn some good habits as part of it. 

Of course, once you’re working and earning money, there’s a lot of financial advice and tips available. As soon as you open a bank account you normally get bombarded by financial advice, savings plans and other financial products from the bank you choose. 

 

2. Do parents in your country think it's important for their children to save money?

Generally, yes they think it’s important to save something each week or month. They try to encourage their children to save for their future. They might explain about buying a car or house when they’re older and the fact that they’ll probably need some savings for a deposit to be able to get a mortgage or bank loan. Children probably don’t think it’s very important when they’re young, but once they’re working they can usually understand that it makes good sense.

 

3. Do you think children should do household chores?

Yes you should give your child small chores like putting things in the trash and putting their toys away. When they're around 6 or 7, start letting them make up the bed and attempt to help you wash the dishes. The older he gets the more responsibility you should give him. I think the most wonderful way to make him feel good about helping out is by telling him how much of a big boy he is and how much he helped. I think you should give him money for each chore he does and let him go to the store at the end of the week.

 

4. How do children learn to swim?

For children, there are mainly two ways to learn swimming. One is attending some swimming course and the other is instructed by parents. Formal classes would be more professional but you need to pay extra money. However, learning from family cost you almost nothing and the time is rather flexible as well.

 

5. What types of programme do children in China like to watch?

Well, I’ve no idea, but I guess, maybe animation, especially those with some heroic characters. Little boys love to be a hero and save the world maybe. However, girls are more likely fond of something fantasy, just like fairy tales or cartoons with angels or characters with magic.

 

6. In what ways do parents want their children to help them (around the home)?

I suppose it depends on how old the child is, I can think of a couple of examples; traditionally parents might encourage their children to help do some simple chores around the home such as helping to prepare for meals. This might include helping with some simple food preparation tasks or putting the plates, knives, forks and spoons and other things on the table. Also, parents usually try and get their children to tidy their rooms once they are old enough to manage it, or they will teach younger children to at least put their toys away after playing with them. 

 

7. Do parents in your country expect their adult children to give them help?

When the children are grown up it depends a lot on how close the family is and where the children live. Adult children who still live at home are expected to help out with certain things at home. It might be cooking, cleaning, washing or anything else that needs done. Or if the family have animals, the children may take over looking after them rather than leave it for their parents to do. Another example, and I have a friend who does this, is helping with younger siblings, she helps look after her little brother who is still a small child. She does lots of things with him like collecting him from school and helping him with his homework. 

 

8. In general, who do you think is more willing to help with the housework, boys or girls?

In my country it’s more traditional that girls help with it than boys. Boys aren’t really encouraged much to help with such things, although some do it. I think if there are maybe physically demanding tasks to do then boys are usually more willing to get involved, they seem to like that sort of thing better than girls. 

 

9. In general, who do you think is more willing to help others, boys or girls?

Generally, girls like helping others more. They seem to have a natural instinct for it whereas boys are more competitive, so helping someone else isn’t always their first choice, but it depends on who the other person is. There’s a big difference between helping a family member, helping a friend at college or university and helping someone you hardly know. I think boys are more likely to help their brothers, sisters and friends than other people they maybe don’t know so well.

 

10. How can parents teach their children to help others?

Like most things, children learn by example so if parents make sure that their children see them helping other people, their children should learn that it is normal and expected of them as they grow up.

 

11. How can parents teach their children the value of helping others?

There are many children’s stories about helping, sometimes it’s friends helping each other, sometimes it’s animals, like in many Disney movies. It can be difficult for parents to try and explain why people help each other to a young child, but through stories and movies children can see quite quickly the advantages of having friends, helping people and many other aspects of life. Parents should show their children that helping is a good thing in as many ways as possible, through their own actions, through stories and other examples.

 

12.Do you think children can learn about helping from other children?

Yes, it’s possible, for example, if a child receives some help from another child and they feel good about getting that help because it enables them to do something they were having difficulty with, maybe they will want to try and help another child themselves in a similar way. Helping people makes the person giving the help and the person receiving the help feel good so when a child experiences that it should reinforce the idea that helping in general is a good thing to do.

 

13. Do you think children naturally want to help others, (or do they need to be taught this)?

No, I don’t think it’s anything natural - it’s something we are taught is a good thing to do. If you watch two young children playing, they will often be very competitive and even fight over certain toys. It’s the parents or teachers who teach children that it’s better to share things and help each other. Eventually it becomes a natural instinct as an adult to help someone if we can see that they are having difficulty.
