When shopping for clothes, my mother and...

??? When shopping for clothes, my mother and I have always disagreed on what fits me well. To me, if it zips(拉上拉链), it fits. My mom , however, usually says I need a bigger size.

When I was a teenager, I wanted to dress like my friends, but my body size made it impossible. When mom told me something didn’t suit me, or that I needed a bigger size, all I heard was that my body was wrong.

To avoid arguments(争吵), we stopped going shopping together. This continued until I got engaged(订婚) and I needed to find a wedding dress(婚纱).

I could have just bought it alone, of course, but my mom is my favourite person to hang out with. The idea of looking for a wedding dress without her seemed as frightening as taking her with me.

And so the day came. As I tried on a simple white dress, I saw tears in my mom’s eyes. “You look beautiful.” she told me. Nothing could have shocked me more.

This one didn’t zip up at the back and I did actually need a bigger size , but my mom didn’t say that .She just told me how beautiful I looked. At that moment, all those arguments we’d had while shopping in the past were laid to rest. We didn’t buy a dress that day, We decided to see more, which I would never have predicted.

A few weeks and many shopping trips later, we found the perfect dress. And during those few weeks, mom and I also found the perfect fit for our shopping relationship.

A live-streaming app that monitors (监控) students in classrooms in some middle schools has raised a lot of online discussion. It was reported that any user of the app Shuidi could see inside classrooms. Some parents have praised the app for giving them the chance to monitor their children, while others worry about privacy problems. Do you think the app is a good idea?

Zhang Xiaoru, 16:

I strongly support this app. Nowadays, children play an important role in the whole family, and parents always want to care for their children, wherever they are. This app helps parents see what their children are doing in classes. It’s also a good way to make students behave themselves in school.

Du Yina, 15:

I’m a supporter of this app if parents get their children’s permission (准许) first. The app could help parents focus on children’s bad habits. It could also be used as a tool to prevent bullying (霸凌). However, parents should get their permission first to protect their privacy.

Zhao Xuehan, 16:

I think this app is a bad idea. Schools should be a pleasant and relaxing place for students to study and play. But we will feel uncomfortable if cameras are watching us all the time. We should pay attention to our privacy. Our lives shouldn’t be watched by the public.

Zhang Liliang, 15:

Any form of privacy invasion (侵犯) shouldn’t be allowed. Although some parents want to know more about their children, they should do it in a better way. Being under the eye of strangers is too dangerous.

A.It plays educational videos in class. B.It lets students join online discussions.
