Girls grow up scarred by caution and enter adulthood eager to shake free of their parents' worst nightmares. They still know to be wary of strangers. What they don't know is whether they have more to fear from their friends.

女孩长大后会小心翼翼地长大,进入成年后渴望摆脱父母最糟糕的噩梦. 他们仍然知道要警惕陌生人. 他们不知道的是,他们是否还有更多需要朋友恐惧的地方.

Maybe we adults idealize our own red-rover days, the hot afternoons spent playing games that required no coaches, eating foods that involved no nutrition, getting dirty in whole new ways and rarely glancing in the direction of a screen of any kind.

也许我们的成年人理想化了自己的流浪者日子,炎热的下午花了很多时间,不需要教练,吃不涉及营养的食物,以全新的方式变脏,很少朝任何方向看屏幕.

All our efforts to guard and guide our children may just get in the way of the one thing they need most from us: to be deeply loved yet left alone so they can try a new skill, new slang, new style, new flip-flops. So they can trip a few times, make mistakes, cross them out, try again, with no one keeping score.

我们所有保护和引导孩子的努力都可能会妨碍他们从我们这里最需要的一件事:受到深爱,却不为所动,以便他们可以尝试新技能,新语,新风格,新人字拖 这样他们就可以跳几次,犯错误,将它们划掉,再试一次,而没有人得分.

In the case of the classic Western helicopter parent, it starts with Baby Einstein and reward charts for toilet training, and it never really ends, which is why colleges have to devote so many resources to teaching parents how to leave their kids alone.

对于经典的西方直升机父母来说,它始于爱因斯坦小子和上厕所训练的奖励表,而它却从未真正结束,这就是为什么大学必须投入如此多的资源来教父母如何让孩子独自一人.

Democracy presumes that we're all created equal; competition proves we are not, or else every race would end in a tie.

民主假定我们都是平等的. 竞争证明我们不是,否则每场比赛都会以并列告终.
