第二部分 阅读理解(共两节,满分40分)
The Global Times reports that two online videos showing children telling their parents “ I love you ” have gone viral in China. The first, filmed by an Anhui TV station, shows a number of college students telling their parents they love them. The responses are mixed. “Are you drunk” asked one parent. In another similar video, shot by a Shanxi TV station, a father responded even less patiently — “I am going to a meeting, so cut the crap.”
Why don’t Chinese families use those words Theories revolve around the nature of Confucian teaching. “The parents’ responses show that many Chinese are not good at expressing positive emotions,” Xia Xueluan, a Sociologist from Peking University, told the Global Times. “They are used to educating children with negative language.”
This isn’t the first time that China has done some soul-searching about familial love — last year China Daily asked a cross-section of people if they said “I love you” to their parents, spouses and children. “I have never said ‘ I love you’ to my family and I don’t think I will in the future,” one 56-year-old told the paper. “Saying it aloud is embarrassing for me.”
