In junior high school, one of my classmates, Ethan, was addicted to TV.This boy simply knew everything about such pop shows as Who’s the Boss?
Then one day Ethan’s mother made him an offer in order to draw him back to his school subjects.She promised that she would give him $200 if he could go a full month without watching any TV.None of us thought Ethan could do it, but he did quit TV.His mom paid him $200.He went out and bought a TV, the biggest he could find.
In recent years, hundreds of schools have carried out experiments with paying kids with cash for showing up or getting good grades.All school kids admire this trend.But it upsets adults.Teachers say that we are rewarding kids for doing what they should be doing of their own will.Psychologists warn that money can actually make kids perform worse by making the act of learning cheap.The debate has become a typical battle over why our kids are not learning at the rate they should be despite decades of reforms and budget increases.
One possible version：
The passage is mainly about parents giving money to their children so that they can show up or get good grades recently by the way of taking the example of Ethan and his mother.
Diligence and Laziness
In general, diligence is the motive power of success.As it is, there are so many people who have been successful in their careers owing to diligence.To take Dr.Sun Yatsen for example, he had been busy running about the democratic revolution of China for forty years, which in the long run gave birth to the
Republic of China.Compared with diligence, laziness is just opposite to it.Ten to one, failure often results from laziness.It is not too much to say that laziness is the main factor of failure.
No doubt, it pays to be diligent, but it’s wrong to work and work without taking a rest.Undoubtedly, we may take some time off after hard work.We must recognize that being lazy may do good to us once in a while.Can you imagine that we take a rest for the purpose of taking a longer walk? Of course, we cannot be too diligent.On the other hand, we also shouldn’t ignore the timely laziness.Because of this, we can find that diligence with proper laziness may lead to a wholesome life.
以“My Attitude Towards Laziness”为主题发表自己的看法，要点包括：
One possible version：
Generally, diligence contributes to success while laziness results in failure.But working continuously is wrong and so diligence with right laziness gives rise to a wholesome life.
Diligence often brings us success and laziness failure.However, taking some rest can do us good. A balance of diligence and laziness can be beneficial.
No one of those who succeed attains accomplishment at once.The road to prominence is long and winding,
requiring constant drive to overcome obstacles along the way.At often times, laziness makes us lose the determination needed to reach our final destinations.Without hard work, one may be easily frustrated by possible setbacks and may even give up half way.
The unquestionable harm of laziness can be testified through a low graduation rate of students pursuing a medical career in the United States.To become a doctor, one must go through nine years of university education and several more as an intern.During the long process, a lot of prospective students do not work hard enough to master necessary expertise and experience, as a result they can’t go on to work as doctors.
Thus, it is safe to conclude that laziness prevents us from becoming successful.
The way people hold the belief that a funfilled, painfree lifestyle equals happiness actually reduces their chances of ever obtaining real happiness.If fun and pleasure are equal to happiness，then pain must be equal to unhappiness.But in fact，the opposite is true: more often than not things that lead to happiness contain some pain.
As a result，many people avoid the very attempts that are the source of true happiness.They fear the pain inevitably (不可避免地) brought by such things as marriage，raising children，professional achievement, religious commitment, selfimprovement.
Ask a bachelor why he resists marriage even though he finds dating to be less and less satisfying.If he is honest，he will tell you that he is afraid of making a commitment，for commitment is in fact quite painful.The single life is filled with fun, adventure and excitement.Marriage has such moments, but they are not its most distinguishing features.
Couples，with infant children, are lucky to get a whole night’s sleep of a threeday vacation.We don’t know any parent who would choose the word fun to describe raising children.But couples that decide not to have children ever know the joys of watching a child grow up or playing with a grandchild.Understanding and accepting that true
happiness has nothing to do with fun is one of the most liberating realizations.It liberates time: now we can devote more hours to activities that can really increase our happiness.It liberates money: buying that new car or those fancy clothes to increase our happiness now seems pointless.And it liberates us from envy: we now understand that all those who always have so much fun actually may not be happy at all.

All those who always have so much fun actually may not be happy at all.
I have a bitter experience. When I was a child, I lived a poor life, and I had a happy and meaningful life in my childhood. And my parents were always respecting each other. And now we have some money,
and our life has improved a lot. To tell the truth, it is a good thing. Unfortunately, my father always goes out and takes part in the gambling activities. And my mother sometimes quarrels with my father. I am extremely unhappy about it. I think money doesn’t equal happiness. And painfree lifestyle also doesn’t equal happiness. The real happiness is that everyone loves each other, and does everything useful for our society. Most of my classmates support me. But some of them think money is everything. In my opinion, we can’t do things without money. But money can’t take the place of everything, such as your life, your time and your happiness.
