Adolescence, that swampy zone between safety and power, is best patrolled by adults armed with sense and mercy, not guns and a badge.

青春期是介于安全和权力之间的沼泽地带,最好由拥有理智和仁慈而不是枪支和徽章的成年人巡逻.

Inflicting emotional distress has typically been treated as a civil action. How 'substantial' does the distress have to be for it to turn criminal?

施加情绪困扰通常被视为民事诉讼. 要使之变成犯罪,苦难必须有多“实质性”?

Our children will outwit us if they want; for when it comes to technology, they hold the higher ground. Unlike other tools passed carefully and ceremonially from one generation to the next - the sharp scissors, the car keys - this is one they understand better than we do.

如果我们的孩子愿意,他们将胜过我们. 因为在技术方面,他们拥有更高的地位. 不像其他工具经过一代又一代人仔细地,按礼貌地传递给了其他人(锋利的剪刀,汽车钥匙),这是他们比我们更了解的一种工具.

Most of us were probably less than immaculately honest as teenagers; it's practically encoded into adolescence that you savor your secrets, dress in disguise, carve out some space for experiments and accidents and all the combustible lab work of becoming who you are.

我们中的大多数人在十几岁的时候可能还很诚实. 它实际上已编码为青春期,您可以品尝自己的秘密,变相穿着,为实验和事故以及为成为您自己而进行的所有可燃性实验室工作留出一定的空间.

Just because we eat together does not mean we eat right: Domino's alone delivers a million pizzas on an average day.

仅仅因为我们一起吃饭并不意味着我们就吃得正确:仅Domino一家人平均一天就可以送出一百万个披萨.

It's the experts in adolescent development who wax most emphatic about the value of family meals, for it's in the teenage years that this daily investment pays some of its biggest dividends.

青春期发展方面的专家最重视家庭膳食的价值,因为在青少年时期,这项日常投资可以带来一些最大的收益.
