Moreover, cultural and socio-economic influences affect the continuum of patientprovider communication. The consequences of medical miscommunication can be severe. Patients become sicker because they fail to stick to treatment regimens that they do not understand. They miss appointments.

CHINESE PARENTS FIND IT HARD TO CHOOSE A SCHOOL FOR THEIR CHILDREN. 中国父母很难为孩子选择一所学校

If you thought sending your child off to school for the first time was the hardest day of your parenting life, think again. Try taking them out of the first school, transporting them across town, state, country, continent and then asking them to go to a new one. In reality, starting a new school is not the end of the world that our children would have us believe, but until they are settled, it is incredibly stressful for all concerned. The bottom line is that you and your child are looking for completely different things in a school; for you, you need to be sure that the school provides a safe and nurturing environment and is academically stimulating, while your child wants friends, interesting teachers, fun play equipment and good snacks. Ask yourself what is most important to you long term. For “Third Culture Kids”, they are unlikely to achieve long term academic success without first addressing their emotional well being, so my advice is to look for a school that meets those needs first, and worry about the academics later. The same applies to a local move however – no matter what the reason for the move, until a child is comfortable and secure in their environment, they are unlikely to learn anything effectively.

MFA GRAPHIC DESIGN THESIS PROJECT

如果你以为第一次把你的孩子送到学校是你父 母生活中最困难的一天,那么再想想。试着把 他们带出第一所学校,把他们送到城镇,州, 国家,大陆,然后让他们去一个新的学校。 实际上,创办一个新的学校不是世界末日,我 们的孩子会让我们相信,但是在他们安顿下来 之前,对于所有有关方面来说都是令人难以置 信的压力。 底线是你和你的孩子在学校里寻找完全不同 的东西;对于你来说,你需要确保学校提供一 个安全和滋养的环境,并且在学术上有所启 发,而你的孩子想要朋友,有趣的老师,有 趣的游戏设备和美味的零食。 问问自己什么是最重要的长期。对于“第三 文化孩子”来说,如果不先处理好自己的情 绪,他们不可能取得长期的学业上的成功, 所以我的建议是先找一个满足这些需求的学 校,后来担心学者。然而,同样的情况也适 用于本地的移动-无论移动的原因是什么, 直到孩子在自己的环境中感到舒适和安全, 他们不可能有效地学习任何东西。


BECAUSE OF DIFFERENT CHILDREARING PRACTICES IN CHINA, CHINESE PARENTS FIND IT HARD TO ASSIMILATE INTO AMERICAN PRACTICES OF PARENTING. 由于中国的育儿做法不同,中国家长觉得很难 吸收美国的育儿做法。 The Chinese believe that the best way to protect their children is by preparing them for the future, letting them see what they’re capable of, and arming them with skills, work habits and inner confidence that no one can ever take away.

中国人相信,保护孩子的最好办法就是为未来 做好准备,让他们看到自己的能力,用技术, 工作习惯和内心的信心来武装自己,这是没有 人可以拿走的。

Amy Chua is the daughter of Chinese immigrants to the United States. Her parents, she says, were “extremely strict but extremely loving.” She tried to raise her kids the same way.

蔡美仪是中国移民到美国的女儿。她说,她的 父母“非常严格,但非常爱”。她试图以同样 的方式抚养她的孩子。

What does this mean? Chua provides some specific examples.

这是什么意思?蔡提供了一些具体的例子。

For instance, Chua says she never allowed her kids to have a play date, watch TV, participate in a school play, or choose their own extra-curricular activities. The kids are also not allowed to “get any grade less than an A” or “not be the No. 1 student in every subject except gym and drama.”

例如,蔡先生说,她从来没有允许她的孩子玩 游戏日期,看电视,参加学校戏剧,或选择自 己的课外活动。孩子们也不允许“除A以外的 任何一个等级”或“不是除了健身房和戏剧之 外的每个主题的第一名学生”。

When her 7-year-old daughter failed to master a new piece on the piano, Chua drove her relentlessly. “I threatened her with no lunch, no dinner, no Christmas or Hanukkah presents,” Chua writes, “no birthday parties for two, three, four years. When she still kept playing it wrong, I told her she was purposely working herself into frenzy because she was secretly afraid she couldn’t do it. I told her to stop being lazy, cowardly, selfindulgent and pathetic.”

当她七岁的女儿未能在钢琴上掌握一件新作品 时,蔡先生无情地开车。 “我威胁说她不吃午 饭,不吃晚饭,没有圣诞节或光明节礼物,” 蔡说,“两三四年没有生日派对。当她还在玩 错的时候,我告诉她,她故意为自己疯狂工 作,因为她偷偷地害怕自己不能这样做。我告 诉她不要懒惰,懦弱,自我放纵和可悲。

Chua made her daughter work into the night, denying her even a break to go to the bathroom. “The house became a war zone, and I lost my voice yelling, but still there seemed to be only negative progress, and even I began to have doubts.”

蔡女士让她的女儿工作到晚上,否认她甚至休 息去卫生间。 “房子变成了战区,我的声音 大叫,但这似乎只有负面的进展,我甚至开始 怀疑。

WHY DO I DECIDE TO ATTACK THIS TOPIC? 为什么我会开始这个主题?

22

I’ll share a story with everyone. Four years ago I came to the United States for the first time. I don’t know how much difference there was between the two countries. When I had a fever, I went to a hospital as soon as I could, just like I would in China. I went to the hospital front desk. I told them, I was sick and needed to see a doctor right away. However the nurse didn’t help me to see a doctor. She said, I needed to meet two requirements, first I must be a member of the hospital; second I needed to make an appointment first. In China, in the same situation, I could just go to any hospital and check in to see a doctor, they will take care the rest for me.

我和大家分享一个故事。四年前,我第一次来 到美国。我不知道两国有多少差别。当我发烧 时,我尽可能的赶去医院,就像我在中国一 样。我去了医院的前台。我告诉他们,我病 了,需要马上去看医生。然而,护士不帮我看 医生。她说,我需要满足两个要求,首先我必 须是医院的会员;第二,我需要先预约。在中 国,在同样的情况下,我可以去任何一家医院 看病看病,他们会照顾好我的。

This experience helped me realized how different those systems are, which has led to my thesis project.

这个经历帮助我意识到这些系统是多么不同, 这导致了我的论文项目。

SOCIAL AND CULTURAL BELIEFS INFLUENCE CHILD-REARING. 社会和文化信仰影响育儿。

Society and culture might be the second parents of children because of their lasting effects on a child’s development. The shared beliefs in a society or culture make their way into the home by how a parent chooses to educate her child. These cultural and social influences give rise to the many truths and stereotypes about intercultural differences between nations and ethnicities.

Global post 30

MFA GRAPHIC DESIGN THESIS PROJECT

社会和文化可能是孩子的第二个父母,因为他们 对孩子的发展有持久的影响。一个社会或文化中 的共同信念通过家长选择如何教育她的孩子进入 家庭。这些文化和社会影响引起了关于国家和种 族间文化差异的诸多真相和刻板印象。


MULTI-ETHNIC FAMILIES CAN CREATE COMPLEX PROBLEMS FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN. 多民族家庭可能为父母和子女创造复杂 的问题。

Different Cultures

不同的文化

Multi-ethnic families have become more common in the US. and are projected to increase, according to the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Yet parenting styles might not be affected when parents from different cultures raise children together. This might be because parenting partners from different cultures have already worked through cultural differences in order to maintain their relationship as a couple. Discrepancies in parenting styles may decrease the longer a couple has worked together to raise their child. When parents do have widely differing parenting styles, however, this can negatively affect a child.

美国的多民族家庭越来越普遍。并预计将增加, 根据马萨诸塞州大学,阿默斯特。然而,不同文 化的父母一起抚养孩子时,父母的方式可能不会 受到影响。这可能是因为来自不同文化的亲子伙 伴已经通过文化差异来努力维持他们的夫妻关 系。父母养育方式的差异可能会缩短夫妻共同抚 养子女的时间。但是,如果父母的教养方式差异 很大,这可能会对孩子产生负面影响。

Immigration

移民

Immigration can create complex problems for parents and children when it comes to parenting styles because of cultural differences. For example, children of Asian parents might come into conflict when faced with a mainstream U.S. culture that stresses independence when parents are emphasizing different values at home, according to Carnegie Mellon University. Traditional values might clash with values being absorbed by children at school or by being exposed to parenting styles of peers’ families. Immigrant families might also feel less confident about imparting cultural values to children since these may differ from the priorities promoted by US. culture, according to the Texas Center for the Advancement of Literacy and Learning.

由于文化差异,移民可以为父母和子女制造复 杂的问题。例如,卡内基梅隆大学(Carnegie Mellon University)表示,亚裔父母的孩子在面 对美国主流文化时可能会发生冲突,这种文化强 调独立性,因为父母在家里强调不同的价值观。 传统价值观可能与学校儿童吸收的价值观相冲 突,或者暴露于同龄人家庭的养育方式。移民家 庭也可能对向儿童传播文化价值感觉不太自信, 因为这可能不同于美国推动的优先事项。文化, 根据德克萨斯州扫盲和学习促进中心。

CHAPTER2 RESEARCH

WESTERN AND EASTERN PARENTS ENGAGE IN DIFFERENT PARENTING PRACTICES. 西方和东方的父母从事不同的育儿做法。

The amount of independence parents give their children also partly relies on culture and society. Western and Eastern parents, for example, engage in remarkably different parenting practices in regard to teaching their children independence. The Western parenting style puts heavy emphasis on independence, encouraging children in their hobbies and interests. Eastern parenting styles de-emphasize this type of independence in favor of dependence on the parents. A Chinese mom, for example, lets her children know that they can rely on her. A Chinese child might appear childlike to Westerners because of that, and Chinese children commonly live with their parents until they marry.

Western and Eastern parents 32

MFA GRAPHIC DESIGN THESIS PROJECT

http://www.globaltimes.cn

父母给孩子的独立性也部分依赖于文化和社会。 例如,西方和东方的父母在教育孩子独立方面进 行了截然不同的养育方式。西方的养育方式强调 独立性,鼓励孩子的爱好和兴趣。东方的养育方 式不再强调这种独立性,而是倾向于依赖父母。 例如,一位中国妈妈让她的孩子知道他们可以依 靠她。一个中国的孩子可能因此而对西方人显得 孩子气,而中国的孩子通常和他们的父母住在一 起,直到他们结婚。


SOME CHILDREN OF IMMIGRANTS FACE LANGUAGE BARRIERS IN THEIR OWN HOMES. 一些移民的孩子在自己的家中面临着语 言障碍。

Dominic Quy Hoang, youth program coordinator at the Sacramento Chinese Community Service Center, estimates that 70 percent of the families he works with have languagebased problems. “They get really frustrated, the kids. They want to explain more and want to talk more, but they cannot. Poor communication leads to fights, bad feelings and unnecessary pain and anguish--because the problem is the lack of a common language.”

萨克拉门托华人社区服务中心的青年项目协调 员Dominic Quy Hoang估计,他工作的家庭中有 70%有基于语言的问题。 “他们真的很沮丧, 孩子们。他们想解释更多,想要多说,但他们不 能。沟通不畅导致战斗,不良情绪和不必要的痛 苦和痛苦 - 因为问题是缺乏共同的语言。

The reason they lack a common language, experts say, is simple: As they move through the American school system, the children of immigrants tend to “forget” the home language unless they immigrated at a later age or are surrounded at all times in an environment that reinforces the parents’ preferred tongue. Often, the parents’ Englishspeaking ability fails to match the child’s progression, and they start communicating in a fragmented, “half-and-half” manner. Parents speak to their children in their native tongue, using simpler vocabulary mixed in with some phrases in English. The children, who can comprehend better than they can converse, respond in elementary English, using rudimentary “home-talk” whenever possible.

专家说,他们缺乏共同语言的原因很简单:当他 们在美国的学校体系中移动时,移民的孩子往往 会“忘记”母语,除非他们晚年移民,或者一直 被环境,加强父母的偏好的舌头。通常情况下, 父母的英语能力不能与孩子的进步相匹配,他们 开始以分散的“半个半”的方式进行交流。父母 用自己的母语向孩子讲话,用简单的词汇和一些 英语短语混合在一起。那些能够比他们能交谈得 更好的孩子能够用小学英语进行回应,尽可能使 用基本的“家庭对话”。

BOTH CHINESE AND WESTERN MEDICINES ARE WIDELY USED BY CHINESE AMERICANS. 中西医都广泛使用中西医结合。

While many of the health and mental health-related problems in Chinatown are class-based, many others, such as the language barrier, cultural and generational conflict, and attitudes toward illness and soliciting help, are peculiar to Chinese Americans regardless of their class position, education, and place of residence. Mental health service agencies, like the Richmond Maxi Center, in the middle-class Richmond district of San Francisco and the Asians for Community Involvement in the Silicon Valley of California, have been established to meet the needs of Chinese Americans and other Asian Americans. Today, both Chinese and Western medicines are widely used by Chinese Americans, although some use exclusively Chinese medicine while others only Western medicine.

CHINESE AMERICA CHILDREN WILL LIKELY LEARN ENGLISH FASTER THAN THEIR PARENTS, AND MAY ONLY WANT TO SPEAK ENGLISH. 中国美国的孩子们可能会比父母快速学习 英语,而且很多只想说说英语。

Many Americans expect immigrants to learn English as soon as possible after arriving here. If Chinese parents can speak English, they will be at a better advantage than someone who does not. Most communities offer free or low cost classes to help you learn English. Once Chinese parents know some English, they can also take other basic classes that will help them with things such as learning to read and write better, use computers, use the bank, buy a home and many other useful things.

许多美国人到达这里后,希望移民尽快学习英 语。如果中国的父母能说英语,那么他们会比没 有英语的人更有优势。大多数社区提供免费或低 成本的课程来帮助你学习英语。一旦中国的父母 知道了一些英语,他们也可以参加其他的基础 班,帮助他们学习阅读和写作,使用电脑,使用 银行,买房子和其他许多有用的东西。

Chinese America children will likely learn English faster than their parents, and may only want to speak English. However, it is important that they also learn parent’s native language. Chinese parents can encourage this by speaking to their school-aged child in their language, and children can help parents learn by speaking in English.

中国美国儿童可能会比他们的父母学习英语的速 度更快,而且可能只想说英语。但是,他们也学 习家长的母语是很重要的。中国的父母可以用他 们的语言对他们的学龄儿童说话,孩子们可以用 英语来帮助他们学习。

CHINESE PARENTS FIND IT HARD TO CHOOSE A SCHOOL FOR THEIR CHILDREN. 中国父母很难为孩子选择一所学校。

If you thought sending your child off to school for the first time was the hardest day of your parenting life, think again. Try taking them out of the first school, transporting them across town, state, country, continent and then asking them to go to a new one.

如果你以为第一次把你的孩子送到学校是你父母 生活中最困难的一天,那么再想想。试着把他们 带出第一所学校,把他们送到城镇,州,国家, 大陆,然后让他们去一个新的学校。

In reality, starting a new school is not the end of the world that our children would have us believe, but until they are settled, it is incredibly stressful for all concerned.

实际上,创办一个新的学校不是世界末日,我们 的孩子会让我们相信,但是在他们安顿下来之 前,对于所有有关方面来说都是令人难以置信的 压力。

The bottom line is that you and your child are looking for completely different things in a school; for you, you need to be sure that the school provides a safe and nurturing environment and is academically stimulating, while your child wants friends, interesting teachers, fun play equipment and good snacks. Ask yourself what is most important to you long term. For “Third Culture Kids”, they are unlikely to achieve long term academic success without first addressing their emotional well being, so my advice is to look for a school that meets those needs first, and worry about the academics later. The same applies to a local move however – no matter what the reason for the move, until a child is comfortable and secure in their environment, they are unlikely to learn anything effectively.

Expat Parenting: Choosing an International School 40

底线是你和你的孩子在学校里寻找完全不同的东 西;对于你来说,你需要确保学校提供一个安全 和滋养的环境,并且在学术上是一个刺激,而你 的孩子想要朋友,有趣的老师,有趣的游戏设备 和美味的零食。 问问自己什么是最重要的长期。对于“第三文 化孩子”来说,如果不先处理好自己的情绪, 他们不可能取得长期的学业上的成功,所以我 的建议是先找一个满足这些需求的学校,后来 担心学者。然而,同样的情况也适用于本地的 移动 - 无论移动的原因是什么,直到孩子在自 己的环境中感到舒适和安全,他们不可能有效 地学习任何东西。

IT IS IMPORTANT TO LEARN THE LANGUAGE IN A NEW COUNTRY. 在新的国家学习语言很重要。

Looking for a Job

寻找工作

Finding work when you don’t speak the language fluently, or at all, can be incredibly difficult. The options tend to be limited to working in the immigrant community with others who speak your language or accepting a lower paid post, which doesn’t involve a lot of talking. This is one of the reasons why highly educated immigrants often end up working in menial jobs and drawing small salaries when they are capable of doing much more.

如果你不流利地说流利的语言,或者根本不懂流 利的语言,那么发现工作是非常困难的。选择往 往局限于在移民社区工作,与其他说你的语言或 接受较低报酬的职位,而不涉及很多谈话。这就 是为什么受过高等教育的移民往往最终只能从事 卑贱的工作,而在能够做得更多的时候却能拿少 量的工资。

Making Friends

交朋友

Another common issue with immigrants is that they have to stick around others who speak the same language. Even someone who speaks a foreign tongue to a more or less good level can still struggle to relax enough to make new friends using their new language. This is why large immigrant communities build up and why new arrivals can spend years in the country without getting to know many people outside of this community.

移民的另一个常见问题是,他们必须坚持使用同 一种语言的人。即使是说一个外语水平差不多的 人,仍然可以努力放松,让新朋友用他们的新语 言。这就是为什么大量的移民社区建立起来,为 什么新来者可以在这个国家呆多年,而不去了解 这个社区以外的许多人。

THE “TIGER MOM” IS A STEREOTYPE OF CHINESE PARENTING IN AMERICA. “老虎妈”是中国在美国养育的刻板印象。

Chinese parenting interacts with mainstream American culture in an interesting way. Each culture supports a parenting style with different ideas and notions. In America, Baumrind’s model indicates that parents should combine a degree of strictness and emotional support. In China, Confucius argued that parents should aim to raise a child who knows how to respect social relationships. In sum, research studies that have examined general differences in children’s reactions to Chinese parenting and different factors that might influence the quality of parenting in immigrant families highlight the danger in applying mainstream American concepts of parenting to measure and understand Chinese parenting.

中国的养育与美国主流文化以一种有趣的方式 相互作用。每种文化都支持不同的想法和观 念。在美国,Baumrind的模式表明父母应该结 合一定程度的严格和情感上的支持。在中国, 孔子认为,父母的目标应该是培养一个懂得 尊重社会关系的孩子。总而言之,调查研究发 现,儿童对中国父母养育方式的一般差异以及 可能影响到移民家庭养育质量的各种因素突出 了运用美国主流的养育观念来衡量和理解中国 养育子女的危险。

In the American cultural context, however, the general public and the media tend to make sense of Chinese parenting by directly comparing it with the American standard of parenting. As a result of the difference in cultural beliefs supporting Chinese parenting and American parenting, Americans interpret harsh and strict Chinese parents as “tiger moms.” Consequently, without the understanding of the cultural notion of training, the parenting style of the “tiger moms” appears controversial in the eye of the American public. However, when looking at Chinese parenting with the understanding of appropriate cultural values and beliefs, one can find the rationale behind the so-called “tiger mom” is actually to prepare the children to thrive in the environment of social order and respect that

然而,在美国的文化背景下,大众和媒体倾向于 把中国的养育与美国的养育标准直接比较。由于 支持中国人养育和美国养育的文化信仰的差异, 美国人把苛刻严格的中国父母解读为“老虎妈 妈”,因此,如果不了解培训的文化观念,“老 虎妈妈”的养育方式,在美国公众的眼中出现争 议。然而,在了解适当的文化价值观和信仰的基 础上看中国人的养育之道,可以发现,所谓的“ 老虎妈妈”背后的理由实际上是为了让孩子们在 社会秩序和尊重中国人社会。

CHINESE PARENTS AREN’T PRONE TO SAYING “I LOVE YOU” OR GIVING SPONTANEOUS BEAR HUGS. 中国的父母不容易说“我爱你”,或是给 自发的熊抱。

Chinese parents aren’t prone to saying “I love you” or giving spontaneous bear hugs. They express love in other ways — such as cleaning your car while you’re at work, making sure to always stock up on your favorite drinks from Costco, buying you a space-age digital rice cooker for your first apartment, or “accidentally” forgetting to tell you that nogood American boy stopped by to see you.

LEARNING THE LOCAL LANGUAGE CAN HELP CHINESE FAMILIES INTEGRATE INTO THEIR NEW HOME. 学习当地语言可以帮助中国家庭融入新 家园。

Many Americans expect immigrants to learn English as soon as possible after arriving here. If you can speak English, you will be at a better advantage than someone who does not. Most communities offer free or low cost classes to help you learn English. Once you know some English, you can also take other basic classes that will help you with things such as learning to read and write better, use computers, use the bank, buy a home and many other useful things. You can also attend GED classes to finish your high school education if you haven’t, and can then go to college if you desire.

许多美国人到达这里后,希望移民尽快学习英 语。如果你能说英语,那么你将比没有英语的人 更有优势。大多数社区提供免费或低成本的课程 来帮助你学习英语。一旦你认识了一些英语,你 也可以参加其他基础课程,这些课程将帮助你 学习更好的读写,使用电脑,使用银行,买房子 和其他许多有用的东西。如果没有,也可以参加 GED班来完成高中教育,如果你愿意的话可以上 大学。

Your children will likely learn English faster than you, and may only want to speak English. However, it is important that they also learn your native language. You can encourage this by speaking to your school-aged child in your language, and they can help you learn by speaking to you in English.

你的孩子可能会比你更快地学习英语,而且可能 只想说英语。但是,他们也学习你的母语是很 重要的。你可以用你的语言和你的学龄儿童说话 来鼓励你,他们可以用英语和你说话来帮助你学 习。

Your Chinese parents may be completely Americanized otherwise, but one cultural habit from the old country they can’t let go of is collecting gold jewelry for their daughters’ weddings.

IN AMERICA, YOUR PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT IS DETERMINED BY WHERE YOU LIVE. 在美国,你的公立学校是由你住的地方决 定的。

School choice options available to parents have increased dramatically in recent years. There’s a growing national sentiment that promoting competition in public education may spur schools to improve and that parents who invest energy in choosing a school will continue to be involved in their child’s education.

为家长提供的学校选择方案近年来有了显着的增 长。越来越多的民族情绪,促进公立教育的竞 争,可能会促进学校的改善,而在选择学校方面 投入精力的家长将继续参与其子女的教育。

How much choice do parents have? It depends. The amount of choice varies from one school district to another, and varies from state to state. In most instances, it depends on supply and demand, and schools that are well regarded are generally in high demand. So if parents are hoping to transfer your child to a popular school outside your home district, or a popular charter or magnet school, parents may find it difficult.

父母有多少选择?这取决于。选择的数量因学区 而异,因州而异。在大多数情况下,这取决于 供求关系,受到好评的学校通常需求量很大。因 此,如果家长希望将您的孩子转移到您所在地区 以外的流行学校,或者是一个流行的包机或磁铁 学校,家长可能会觉得很困难。

Generally, parents’ first option is their neighborhood school. Each public school district sets up its own rules and boundaries for each school in the district, so it is best to check with house local district to find out which school your child will be assigned to, and what the rules are for attending charter schools, magnet schools, or other schools within or outside your local district. Be aware that school districts sometimes change the neighborhood boundaries for schools to balance enrollment, so don’t assume that if you move in across the street from a school that your child will automatically go to that school.

一般来说,父母的第一选择是他们的邻里学校。 每个公立学区都为自己的学校制定了自己的规则 和边界,所以最好是与当地的当地学区联系,找 出你的孩子将被分配到哪个学校,参加特许学校 的规则是什么,磁铁学校,或您所在地区内外的 其他学校。请注意,学区有时会改变学校的邻里 边界,以平衡招生,所以不要以为如果你在学校 对面的街道上移动,你的孩子就会自动去学校。

In China, the situation is same. But parents could have other opportunity. If parents want children to go a school that it is

在中国,情况是一样的。但是,父母可以有其他 的机会。如果家长想要孩子去学校,而不是在他 们的生活区,他们会去额外的转移费用的学校。

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly referred to as the Affordable Care Act or ‘Obamacare’ was signed into federal law on March 23, 2010. It represents one of the most significant regulatory overhauls of the United States’ healthcare system since the passage of the Medicare and Medicaid Act in 1965. It also represents one of the most divisive political struggles in the U.S. and is frequently misunderstood – both by the media and by individuals. All politics aside, as many as five million foreigners visit the U.S. every month of the year and those foreign visitors are now affected by the healthcare changes here at home. In January 2014, nearly everyone in the U.S. is required to obtain health insurance or pay a tax penalty. While the individual mandate is designed to ensure that everyone in the U.S. has health insurance, the insurance needs for foreign visitors has not changed – foreign visitors to the U.S. should have travel insurance with coverage for emergency medical emergencies and evacuations. If you have friends and family visiting for the holidays, or you’re a non-U.S. citizen planning a trip to the United States, you should understand the following facts before visiting the United States.

Are you ready for test?

I don’t like math!!!

Tyre said parents who pass an antimath sentiment on to their kids hurt their chances of success. In the U.S., parents, kids and even teachers may describe a person as "bad at math," but in other countries where kids perform better in math, if a student is not performing well in math, parents, kids and teachers say he or she needs to work harder. "Math is not a talent; like having a good singing voice, it's a muscle you develop," Tyre said. Be on the lookout for a teacher who expresses a great deal of enthusiasm about math, she said. "You do not want a teacher who is scared of math," she said.

I am not ready for it

01_04 Tyre表示,父母对孩子们的反感的情绪会伤害他们成功的机会。 在美国,父母,孩子乃至老师可能会将一个人描述为“数学不 好”,但在其他国家,如果学生的数学成绩不佳,那么家长,孩 子和老师会说他或她需要更努力工作。 “数学不是一个天赋, 就像有一个很好的歌声,这是你发展的一种关键,”Tyre说。她 正在寻找一位对数学有很大热情的老师。 “你不想要一个害怕 数学的老师,”她说。

Don't Focus Too Much on Standardized-Test Scores

Ideally, a school will teach a rich and complicated curriculum,

Sometimes, good test scores can be an indication that a school is doing a very good job of educating its students, but other times it can be an indication that the school is teaching to the test. Standardized tests only measure about a third

Tyre said, wherein students get a tremendous amount of information, with the test answers embedded throughout.

of the curriculum that should be being taught in the school, which means if the school is only teaching the test material, your child is missing out on a lot.

“理想的情况下,一所学校将教一个丰富和复杂的课程,”Tyre说,

And, she noted, "Test scores going up for one year means nothing, so drop the contest mentality." 学生们可以获得大量的信息,其中包含测试答案。而且,她指出:“ 考试成绩一年没有什么意义,所以放弃比赛的心态。

不要过于注重标准化考试成绩 有时,良好的考试成绩可以表明学校是一个很好的教育学生的工 作,但有时它可以表明学校是教学的考验。标准化考试只测量学 校应该教的课程的三分之一,这意味着如果学校只教测试材料, 你的孩子就错过很多。
