What is it about summer that makes children grow? We feed and water them more. They do get more sun, but that probably doesn't matter as much as the book they read or the rule they broke that taught them something they couldn't have learned any other way.

夏天使孩子成长的原因是什么? 我们更多地喂食和浇水. 他们确实得到更多的阳光,但这可能与他们所读的书或打破规则而教给他们一些他们无法以其他方式学到的东西无关紧要.
