In some countries, men and women are having children at later age than in the past. What are the reasons for this development? Do advantages of this development outweigh disadvantages? 大家延迟生孕小孩的時间,这种情况的原因?利与弊?
持续4周教育话题讨论以后,这个星期的雅思作文总算赶到社会生活服务类.人们如今常常见到一种状况,那便是年轻夫妇婚后却不慌着怀孩子,一直直到30岁,乃至40岁之后才怀孩子.这个是什么原因呢?这一题型是2015年5月21日的模拟题翻板[Nowadays men and women in many countries decide to have babies at an older age. What are the reasons? What effects does this trend have on society and family life? ],只不过是那一次在解析完原因以后规定学生解析晚育对社会与家庭的危害,而此次规定学生解析晚育的益处和弊端.2次优秀作文好像略微差别,但若细心思索,实际上并无多少差别.
那麼导致晚育愈来愈时兴的原因都有哪些呢?“化学物质/心理状态/社会”三个逻辑思维层级,此刻就能够 找到用处了.从化学物质而言,许多 年轻夫妇沒有充足的時间和钱财养着小孩;从心理状态而言,许多 年轻夫妇期望在生小孩以前享有大量随意時间,例如全球去旅行,去发展趋势自身的兴趣爱好;从社会而言,工作中升职的工作压力使年轻夫妇没法怀孩子.一样,晚育的益处和弊端也可从这好多个层级来考虑到：富有的父母对小孩抚养更有益;全球阅历丰富的父母能尽快教育小孩;社会影响力高的大龄父母更有将会制订有益于晚育父母的现行政策.自然,晚育有将会对父母的人体导致工作压力,但比较发达的现代科学技术性能合理处理这一难题.总的来说,这一晚育的题型是较为好写的.可是,怎样写成个性化,写成实际的內容,还必须学生有普遍的社会专业知识和恰当的创作对策.
When Laura Wade-Gery, the boss of Marks and Spencer gave birth to a baby at 50, it immediately made headline news. As a matter of fact, quite many men and women in some countries nowadays have made up their mind to have kids only late in life. To my mind, this trend of the older parents brings more benefits than harms to both the baby and the parents.
(1) 本段以一个知名的晚育事例引出来话题讨论,随后明确提出自身的见解.自然,你还可以挑选用数据信息来开始,例如A recent survey shows that globally over 40% young couples decide to have kids late in life, while this figure was only 15% twenty years ago. 以这类方法来开始,好些于模版式的开始,例如Nowadays many young people decide to have kids late in life and people have different opinions on this. Some think..., but others believe....
(2) 文中必须持续表述汉语里“晚育”的含意,老雅用了几类不一样的表述：to have kids late in life; older parents; wait to have kids; put off having kids; delay having kids; delayed parenthood.
(3) Make headline news 变成今日头条
(4) Make up their mind 决策; 信心
(5) To my mind 我认为;我觉得
Couples wait to have kids for many different reasons. To begin with, many young couples are not financially ready for a new member coming to the family. More often than not, the newly married couples have just started their career and are still struggling to make their ends meet, and an additional member would be a great burden. But even if free from financial problems, many young couples still refuse to start a family with kids because they wish to develop their various potentials or experience the world before they have kids. Most importantly, many young people put off having babies because the society has very strong parenthood penalties. A mom, for instance, is less likely to stay up in her office to get ahead if she has a baby at home, the consequence of which is that her chances of promotion become slimmer.
(2)More often than not 常常
(3)Make (both) ends meet 量入为出;收支相抵
(4)Free from... (=without)沒有......;可免于......
(7)Get ahead 名利双收
Many people argue that the delayed parenthood may pose physical challenges to couples, especially the older mom, and it is quite unfair on the child to have old parents because they probably won’t live long enough to see the child grow up. This may be true, but modern medical technology has significantly reduced the risks involved in birth-giving and equally significantly prolonged our life span so that the older parents, like their younger counterparts, can just as well accompany their kids in their life’s journey. But on top of that, having kids later in life can be beneficial in unique ways: it is good to the baby because its parents are now financially and emotionally better conditioned ; it is good to the parents because now they have been well established so that they have more time for their kids; it is good to the society because those parents who delay having kids and advance top positions of authority at work now have the power to set policies other older parents would benefit from, like offering paid maternity and paternity leave or allowing flexible work schedules.
(4)On top of that 此外
(5)Position of authority 有权利的部位
