There are several reasons why school uniforms are good idea. First of all, uniforms help the school look smart. The stuts feel that they belong to a particular group. every pupil the school wears the uniform, nobody ____56_____ (have) to worry about fashion(时尚). Everybody wears_____57____ se style of clothes. Uniforms be useful unexpected ways, A school Ird has troduced terestg new uniform. On the edge of the jacket, there is a piece of cloth ____58_____gives off light the dark. the childr are g or _____59____ (cycle) to school on dark morngs, car drivers _____60____ (easy) see t.
But uniforms help prove school stdards? The swer _____61____ this question is not clear. One study erica found that stuts' grades _____62 ____ (prove) a little after the school troduced uniforms. But some stuts 't t ____63_____ (wear) the uniform. Other er studies showed no _____64____(connect) bet uniforms d school perforce.
School uniforms are _____65 ____ (tradition) Brit, but some schools are startg to get rid of t. Some very good schools don't have a uniform policy. However, uniforms are still popular. Pupils at about 90 pert of British secondary schools wear uniforms.
Parts everywhere praise their kids. n Ber, author of The A to Z Guide to Raisg Happy d Cont Kids, says, "We've gone to the opposite extre of a few decades ago parts tded to be more strict." By givg kids a lot of praise, parts tk they're bug their childr's conce, , fact, it may be just the opposite. Too much praise backfire d, giv a way that's scere, make kids afraid to try new tgs or take a risk for fear of not g able to stay on top where their parts' praise has put t.
Still, don't go too far the other direction. Not givg ough praise be just as g gas givg too much. Kids will feel like they're not good ough or that you don't care d, as a result, may see no pot tryg hard for their accomplists.
So what is the right ount of praise? Experts say that the quality of praise is more portt t the qutity. If praise is scere d focused on the effort not the outcome, you give it as oft as your child does sometg that deserves a verbal reward." We should especially recoize our childr's efforts to push tselves d work hard to achieve a goal, "says Donahue, author of Partg Without Fear: Lettg Go of Worry d Focusg on What Really Matters. "One tg to rber is that it's the process not the d product that matters."
Your son may not be the best basketball player on his t. But if he's out there every day d playg hard, you should praise his effort regardless of whether his t s or loses. Praisg the effort d not the outcome also recoizg your child she has worked hard to the yard, cook ner, or ish a book report. But whatever it is, praise should be giv on a case-by-case basis d be proportionate(相称的) to the ount of effort your child has put to it.
