The relationship between parents and children has always been a hot topic. Many students may feel 61 (stress) because of their parents. Most parents have good intentions, 62 some of them aren’t very helpful with the problems their sons and daughters have in 63 (adjust) to college, and a few of them seem to go out of their way to add to their children’s 64 (difficulty).
For one thing, parents are often not aware of the kinds of problems their children face. They don’t realize that the 65 (compete) is stronger, that the required standards of work are 66 (high), and that their children may not be prepared for 67 change. They may be upset by their children’s poor g rades. At their kindest, they may 68 (gentle) ask why John or Mary isn’t doing better, whether he or she is trying as hard as he or she could, and so on. At their worst, they may threaten 69 (take) their children out of college or cut off living expenses.
Sometimes parents think it right and natural that they determine 70 their children should do with their lives. They forget that everyone is different and that each person must develop in his or her own way.
