We can have conflicts with our important persons likefriends,relatives,workmates,etc.But the conflict doesn’t necessarily mean thatthe relationship will be destroyed.In fact,sometimes conflict helps people tolet out their silent feelings,allowing them to free their suppressedemotions.However,when in a conflict,we usually get angry and say or do thingswhich aren’t linked to the problem at hand.Therefore,it is important that weshould try to avoid conflicts through effective communication.

In a heated argument,we usually say things that aren’t relatedto the real problem,and even use rude words to make sure we gain an advantageover the other persons.Then the whole situation goes badly.So we should notseparate(隔离)theroot cause of the problem and build our discussion around it.This ensures thatthere are no rude remarks and the situation moves in a positive direction.

It’s easy for us to think we’re right and if something isn’tworking out,it surely must be someone else’s fault. However,if you aim to solvea conflict,first of all,you should show some respect and allow the otherpersons to express themselves.Using remarks like,"I understand yourconcern on this"or"I know you’re right at your end",would makethe other persons feel more appreciated.

Sometimes some people get too excited and may behave in thewrong way or say something others may not appreciate.This can cause a worsesituation.Actually,they should control their emotions and keep calm.This has tobe learned through self-control and observing behavior of other people.

The tips mentioned above are useful for mostsituations.However,we don’t rule out the possibility that there are some peoplewho always want to create some sort of trouble for others.You can tell themfrom others,and putting in an effort to resolve a conflict with them may justnot be a wise idea. The best way to deal with these people is to forget them.Afamous saying can help you and that is:"You should never fight with a pig;you both get dirty and only the pig likes it."

5. What can we learnfrom Paragraph 1?

A. Conflicts mayhelp us deal with our emotions.

B. Conflicts canimprove our relations with others greatly.

“I likephotography because it captures amazing things that you might not see again,”Timmy Walsh says. He takes pictures of flowers, sunsets and road signs. Butthose photos don‟t usually end up in a scrapbook(剪贴簿) or on his bedroom walls.

WhenTimmy was five, he found out that his aunt Bev had lung cancer. He wanted to dosomething to help her. His first idea was to sell his photos from alemonade--type stand in front of his house in Pennsylvania. “My mom said itwouldn‟t work because we were not on a busy street,” Timmy explains.

His nextidea was to have an art show. Timmy decorated his home with candles, flowers,and white lights. Then he arranged his photos.

He raised morethan $300 for cancer research that night. Aunt Bev was “very happy and excited,”he says.

After alocal newspaper wrote a story about Timmy‟s photos, a volunteer offered to helphim set up a website. As people learned about his cause, called Camera for aCure, Timmy began receiving invitations to sell his pictures at art galleriesand fund-raisers. Since then, his work has appeared in more than 20 shows.

WhenTimmy is at a show, he greets each customer and talks about what he wasthinking when he took his photos. And he always shares facts about lung cancer.Sometimes donations and sales are slow, but that doesn‟t bother him. “Itdoesn‟t matter how much money we made because we just raised awareness,” hesays.

The more hours young children spend in child care,the morelikely they are to turn out aggressive and disobedient by the time they are inkindergarten,according to the largest study of child care and development everconducted.Researchers said this correlation(相关性)held true regardless of whether thechildren came from rich or poor homes,were looked after by a relative or at acenter,and whether they were girls or boys.

What is uncertain,however,is whether the child care actuallycauses the problem or whether children likely to turn out aggressive happen tobe those who spend more hours in child care.It also remains unclear whetherreducing the amount of time in child care will reduce the risk that a childwill turn into a mean person.What’s more,quality child care is associated withincreased skills in intellectual ability such as language and memory,leadingsome academics to suggest that child care turns out children who are"smart and naughty".

The government-sponsored research,which has tracked more than1,300 children at 10 sites across the country since 1991,is bound to cause thedebate over child care again: How should people balance work and family?And howshould parents,especially mothers,resolve the demands that are placed on themto be both breadwinners and supermoms?

That debate was already on display at a new briefingyesterday,where researchers themselves had different opinions about the dataand its implications(含义)."There is a constant relationship between time in care andproblem behavior,especially those involving aggression and behavior,"saidJay Belsky of Birkbeck College in London,one of the lead investigators of thestudy who has previously annoyed women’s groups because of his criticisms ofchild care."On behalf of fathers or mothers?"interrupted SarahFriedman,a developmental psychologist at the National Institute of Child Healthand Human Development (NICHD) and one of the other lead scientists on thestudy."On behalf of parents and families," responded Belsky.

"NICHD is not willing to get into policyrecommendations,"said Friedman,contradicting her colleague."There areother possibilities that can be entertained.Yes it is a quicksolution—more hours in child care is associated with more problems.The easysolution is to cut the number of hours but that may have implications for thefamily that may not be beneficial for the development of the children in termsof economics."In an interview after the briefing, Friedman said thatasking parents to work fewer hours and spend more time with their childrenusually meant a loss of family income,which adversely(不利地)affects children.

Scientists said that the study was highly reliable.But theresearchers said they had no whether the behavioral difficulties persisted asthe children moved to higher grades.

13. Children who spend more time inquality child care will       .

A. develop greater ability in language

B. be easy to manage and less naughty

C. possess great risk-taking spirit

D. be greedy and mean to their classmates

14. What is still unknown abouthigher level of aggressiveness in kindergarten children?

A. whether higher level of aggressiveness canbe avoided with longer child care.

B. Where longer child care equally affectschildren from different families.

C. Whether aggressiveness is a direct result oflonger child care.

D. Whether longer child care improvesintellectual ability in children.

15. In the fifth paragraph the word"it" probably mean       .

A. NICHD is unwilling to give parentsrecommendations

B. NICHD is willing to give policy adviceconcerning child care

C. the number of hours in child care should bereduced significantly

D. parents should discipline the behavior oftheir children more strictly
