Japanese students work very hard but many are unhappy. They feel heavy pressures from their parents. Most students are always told by their parents to study harder and better so that they can have a wonderful life in the future. Though this may be a good idea for those very bright students, it can have terrible results for many students who are not gifted(有天赋的)enough. Many of them have tried very hard at school but have failed in the exams and have their parents lost hope. Such students feel that they are hated by everyone else they meet and they don’t want to go to school any longer. They become dropouts(脱离传统社会的人).
It is surprising that though most Japanese parents are worried about their children, they do not help them in any way. Many parents feel that they are not able to help their children and that it is the teacher’s work to help children. To make matters worse, a lot of parents send their children to those schools opening in the evenings and on weekends——they
only help the students to pass the exams and never teach them any real sense of the world.
Many Japanese schools usually have rules about everything from the students’ hair to their clothes and things in their school bags. Child psychologists now think that such strict rules are harmful to the feelings of the students. Almost 40% of the students said that no one had taught them how to get on with others, how to tell right from wrong and how to show love and care for others, even for their parents.

A four-year-old girl is lying in the arms of a doctor. She has just become motherless. A few minutes ago, a big bombing(轰炸) happened near her home in the south of Iraq(伊拉克).
Every day we see pictures like this on our televisions. We see young Iraqi children asking for food and water from American and British soldiers as they move through towns and cities towards the capital, Baghdad. We see these children following adults, carrying bags of things almost the same size as their small bodies as they quickly left their homes in Baghdad.
All this shows that some of the young lives have been turned upside down by the war. And they show the terrible price being paid by Iraqi children.
In southern parts of the country, like the second largest city, Basra, the UN is working to repair the damage(损失)caused by the war. “We are working to provide clean water and get the electrical power to work again.” said Geoffrey Keele, a UN spokesman.
But little else can be done, in Baghdad, parents give their children sleeping pills to try and let them escape the sound of bombing. And all the schools are closed. Some diseases break out among the children, sometimes leading to death.
Nearly 50% of the Iraqi population, which is over 20 million, is under 15 years old. And 30% of them are suffering(遭受痛苦和困难) from malnutrition (营养不良).
