2b 1.I do not understand why some parents
make their kids help with housework and chores at home. &. why some parents make their kids help with housework and chores 是宾 语从句，作understand 的宾语。
&.make sb do sth “让某人做某事” make 后省略to ,同样的用法有
let sb do sth have sb do sth e.g. Let them come in ,they’re my friends. &.housework chores 区别 1)housework 是不可数名词 e.g. I have to do housework now. 2)chores 是可数名词，有复数，指“令人厌 烦的工作，乏味的工作” e.g. Shopping is a real chore for me .
2.Kids these days already have enough stress from school. &.these day“现在，目前”= nowadays e.g. It’s not easy to find a job these days.
&.stress“精神压力，心理负担”不可数名词。 e.g. Too much stress is hard for your heart. &.stress out “紧张的，精疲力竭的” under the stress of “在…的压力下”
3.Housework is a waste of their time. &.a waste of 浪费 waste vt “浪费” e.g. What he did is a waste of time and money. &.waste n “浪费,消耗” e.g. It’s a waste of time. &.waste adj “废弃的,无用的” waste water
4.They should spend their time on schoolwork in order to get good grades and get into a good university. &.spend vt “花费(时间,金钱) (spent ,spent ) spend some time on sth“花时间在某事上” spend some time (in) doing sth “花时间做 某事” spend some time with sb“和某人
e.g. He spends too much time watching TV. e.g. She spent 50 dollars on the skirt. e.g. He spent two years (in ) writing the book. &.spend pay cost take区别 1)Spend指花费时间，金钱或精力，主语是 人，sb spends time /money on sth
2) pay指花费金钱，主语是人，常用 sb pays (sb) money (for sth) e.g. She paid 10 yuan for the book.
3)cost指 花费金钱，精力等，主语是物 sth cost (sb )money e.g. The house cost them a lot of money. 4)take 指花费时间，常用 it takes sb time to do sth ，it 是形式主语。 e.g. It took him three weeks to finish the work.
5. It is the parents’ job to provide a clean and comfortable environment at home for their children.
&.此处代词it仅为形式上的主语, 真正的 主语是to provide … for their children。
&.我们也可将It is one’s job (duty, …) to do something.视为一个固定的句型, 表 示“做某事是某人的工作(职责等)”。
e.g. It’s every teacher’s job to explain things clearly to the students. &.provide 作动词，意为“ 提供；供 应”。 provide sb. with sth.或provide sth. for sb.意为“为某人提供某物”。
e.g. The movie theater provides us with good service. e.g. His school provided a house for him. 汉译英。他们提供给他钱和衣服。 They provided him with money and clothes. They provided money and clothes for him.
6. And anyway, I think doing chores is not so difficult. 反正我觉得干点家务也不难。 &. anyway是一个副词, 若位于句首, 其后往往会有逗号将其与句子的其他 内容隔开。anyway在此句中的作用 是追加评论, 相当于汉语的“反正; 仍然; 依然”。如:
e.g.Sam didn’t get the job, but he’s not unhappy because it didn’t pay well anyway.
&.anyway还可用来表示“不管怎样; 无论 如何”之意。 e.g.It’s just a cold. But anyway, you should still see the doctor.
7.Children these days depend on their parents too much.
&.depend v “ 依靠，依赖”depend与 on/upon连用 e.g. Children depend on their parents for food and clothing. e.g. We can depend on this dictionary.
8.Doing chores helps to develop children’s indepence and teaches them how to look after themselves. &.动名词doing chores作主语 and连接 helps 和teaches表并列。 &.develop vt “发展，养成” e.g. He has developed an interest in collecting stamps. &.develop vt “冲洗（胶片） e.g. I’ll show you my photos after they are developed.
