Xin lỗi mọi người vì tuần trước thất hẹn, vì bạn sau khi thoát khỏi áp lực thi lại nên đã về quê nghỉ luôn 1 tuần. Định tối qua về sẽ chỉnh sửa phần còn lại nhưng vì say xe nên nằm liệt giường luôn.
Chưa có chap mới nên gửi mọi người bài này coi như quà tạ lỗi (bạn lười dịch nên mọi người cố gắng tự đọc hiểu vậy ^^)
Our position in the family affects our personality.
Although other factors can influence your personality, your position in the family is definitely one of the strongest.
The oldest children get maximum attention from their parents and the result is that they’re usually quite self – confident people. They make good leader. The famous Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, was a firstborn child. They’re often ambitious and they’re more likely to go to university than their brothers or sisters. They often get the top jobs, too. Oldest children are also responsible people, because they often have to look after their younger brothers or sisters. The downside of this is that sometimes this means that when they’re older they worry a lot about things. They can also be quite bossy, and even aggressive, especially when they don’t get what they want.
Oldest children – self – confident (tự tin), ambitious (tham vọng), responsible (có trách nhiệm), bossy (gia trưởng), aggressive (hung hăng, hung hãn).
The middle children are usually independent and competitive. Because they have to fight with their brothers and sisters for their parents’ attention. And they’re usually sociable, they like being with people, probably because they have always had other children to play with. However, on the negative side middle children are often jealous of their brothers or sisters and they can be moody.
Middle children – independent (độc lập), competitive (có tính cạnh tranh), sociable (dễ hoà đồng), jealous (hay ghen tị), moody (dễ thay đổi tâm trạng ,“sáng nắng chiều mưa”).
If you’re the youngest in a family, you’ll probably be very charming, very affectionate, and probably quite a relaxed person. This is because parents are usually more relaxed when they have their last child. On the other hand, youngest children are often quite lazy. This is because they always have their older brother or sisters to help them. And they can be quite manipulative – they use their charm to get what they want.
Youngest children – charming (có sức quyến rũ), affectionate (yêu quý mọi người), relaxed (thoải mái), manipulative (biết lôi kéo mọi người), lazy (lười biếng).
People often have the idea that only children are spoilt. Is that true? Of course, it’s true! Only children are the only ones – they don’t have to share with anyone – so they’re often spoilt by their parents and their grandparents. As a result they can be quite selfish. They think of themselves more than of other people. On the positive side, only children are usually very organized and responsible, and they can be very imaginative too.
Only children – organized (có tính tổ chức, sắp xếp), responsible (có trách nhiệm), imaginative (sáng tạo), spoilt (hư hỏng), selfish (ích kỷ).
Another common argument against having just one child is that an only child may be more spoiled than one with siblings. Many people believe that a single child will not have learned to negotiate (thương lượng, đàm phán) with others, and respect the give-and-take involved in many relationships. Some think this may leave the child less capable of interacting well with people his or her own age than one who has been raised with siblings.
