Whether you' re a child, teenager, young adult or are middle-aged, respect for your parents is an important value. Your parents are the people who raised you, devoting time, energy and money to your development. 1.  No matter your age, there are 5 ways to show respect.

● Respect their belongings.

One important way to show respect is to show regard for the things important to your parents. For younger children, this may mean not touching jewelry or other valuable things. For grown children, respect may mean returning a borrowed tool in good condition and on time. Lack of respect for a parent's belongings is a violation(违反,侵害) of personal boundaries(边界,界限). 2. And never borrow things without asking first.

● Punctuality .

3.   Therefore, always be on time. For teenagers, showing up on time means coming home by curfew(宵禁). Adult children should show up on time for family dinners or events, or to pick a parent up for a medical appointment. Call if you're going to be late because parents worry about children, no matter their age.


Remembering birthdays, anniversaries and other special days is a sign that you honor your parents. Make plans to take them to lunch or dinner or bake a cake or cookies. Most parents don't expect expensive gifts, but a handmade gift is always appreciated .A phone call from a grown child who lives too far for a visit is a welcome sign of respect.

● Be kind.

Kind words and affection are simple ways to show respect. Tell your parents you love them. Listen and allow your parents to speak without interruption. Show a sincere interest in what your parents have to say. Be patient with your parents and don't rush them. Never talk back or be rude or disrespectful. Acknowledge your parents' achievements. 5.

A. Don't take advantage of your parents' kindness and generosity.

B. Be a good listener.

C. Lateness indicates a lack of respect.

D. Treat your parents the way you would like to be treated.

E. Being respectful helps build positive relationships with others.

F. And they love you unconditionally throughout your life.

G.Celebrate with them.


With all the snow and bitter cold we’ve had this winter, it’s hard to imagine jumping into a large body of water. But not far away, there are plenty of warm places where you can not only splash but swim.

Snorkel the Philippines

On the other side of the world, there are some amazing hidden destinations in the Pacific Ocean that offer diving and swimming. The Coral Triangle is named for its vast variety of corals(珊瑚), some 600 different species. And, according to the World Wildlife Fund, the area is home to six of the seven world marine turtle species and more than 2,000 species of fish.

Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire

Often referred to as a diver’s paradise(天堂), Bonaire has an average forecast of 82 degrees and sunny year-round. Bonaire is known for “shore diving”, which means you can walk into the water and off you go. There are more than 50 easily accessible dive sites along the west coast. The natural reefs() are full of more than 400 colorful species of fish, sea turtles and coral, as well as several shipwrecks (nowhere else to be seen).

Plunge the Depths of Palau

Also in the Western Pacific is the remote island of Palau, an island country also nicknamed “Rainbow’s End” because it’s so far away. You have to fly from Asian areas, like Thailand, India, Vietnam, but it’s worth it. In Palau, divers will find drop-offs, shallow reefs and channels beneath the sea. Reef walls in Palau team with marine life, schools of fish, old growth coral gardens and hidden marine lakes.

Greg Deaver

Talking of Mexico, the island of Cozumel is a premier warm-weather diving site, with the second largest reef system in the world. It’s Mexico’s largest Caribbean island, largest permanently inhabited island, and Mexico’s third-largest island, and its people mainly live in the town of San Miguel. Easy to reach by plane from the US, Cozumel is known for its massive underwater walls and “drift diving”. In Cozumel, you’ll find a vast number of fish, corals, sponges, nurse sharks, big stingrays, hawks bill turtles and lots of macro life within its clear blue and very warm waters.

Dear Mike,

How are you doing?

















Last winter vacation, my parents and I went back to our hometown, where I spend my childhood. Walking slow in the quiet small town reminded me of the good old day. I went from street to street, in the search of my childhood footprints. Suddenly, I found me at the gate of the primary school on which I studied for six years. As I entered, I was surprised find that the old classroom building was gone. But it was filling with my childhood memories! I felt such sad that tears ran down my cheeks. It was just like the feeling I had while a good friend left me forever.
