Children model themselves largely on their parents. They do so mainly through identification.
Children identify 16 a parent when they believe they have the qualities and feelings that are
17 of that parent. The things parents do and say——and the 18 they do and say to them—therefore strongly influence a child's 19 . However, parents must consistently behave like the type of person they want their child to become.
A parent's actions 20 affect the self-image that a child forms through identification. Children who see mainly positive qualities in their 21 will likely learn to see themselves in a positive way.

In the same way, all children are not influenced 28 by toys and games, reading matter, and television programs. 29 in the case of a dramatic change in family relations, the 30
of an activity or experience depends on how the child interprets it.

In a family where the roles of men and women are not sharply separated and where many household tasks are shared to a greater or lesser extent, notions of making superiority are hard to maintain. The pattern of sharing in tasks and in decisions makes for equality, and this in turn leads to further sharing.
In such a home, the growing boy and girl learn to accept that equality more easily than their parents and to prepare more fully for participation in a world characterized by cooperation rather than by the “battle of sexes”.
In the process goes too far and man's role is regarded as less important and that has happened in some cases——we are as badly off as before, only in reverse. It is time to reassess the role of the man in the American family. We are getting a little tired of “Momism”—— but we don't want to exchange it for a “neo-Popism”. What we need, rather, is the recognition that bringing up children involves a partnership of equals. There are signs that psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and specialists on the family are becoming more aware of the part men play and that they have decided that women should not receive all the credits —— nor all the blame. We have almost given up saying that a woman's place is in the home. We are beginning, however, to analyze man's place in the home and to insist that he does have a place in it. Nor is that place irrelevant to the healthy development of the child. The family is a cooperative enterprise for which it is difficult to lay down rules, because each family needs to work out its own ways for solving its own problems. Excessive authoritarianism(权利主义) has unhappy consequences, whether it wears skirts or trousers, and the ideal of equal rights and equal responsibilities is pertinent (与...有关) not only to a healthy family.
41. Sharing tasks and decisions in a family leads to ______.
A. momism B. neo-popism
C. inequality D. further sharing
42.If a boy or girl has grown up in a home with sharing tasks and decisions, he or she will probably______.
A. believe that life is a “battle of sexes”.
B. accept equality as their parents did.
C. prepare more fully for participation in a cooperative world.
D. insist that man has a place in the home.
43. According to the author, man's role in the American family is ______.
A. less important than woman's
B. equal to woman's
C. irrelevant to the healthy development of the child

44. Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and specialists on the family ______.
A. are paying increased attention to man's place in the home.
B. suggest that we exchange “Momism” for a “neo-popism”.
C. give all the credits to and blames to women.

Culture is one of the most challenging elements of the international marketplace. The characteristic of the learned behavior patterns of the members of a given society is constantly shaped by a set of dynamic variables: language, religion, values and attitudes, manners and customs, aesthetics, technology, education, and social institutions.
To cope with this system, an international manager needs both factual and interpretive knowledge of culture. To some extent, the factual knowledge can be learned; its interpretation comes only through experience.
The most complicated problems in dealing with the cultural environment stem from the fact that one cannot learn culture——one has to live it. Two schools of thought exist in the business world on how to deal with cultural diversity. One is that business is business the world around, following the model of Pepsi and McDonald's. In some cases, globalization is a fact of life; however, cultural differences are still far from converging(融合).
The other school proposes that companies must tailor business approaches to individual cultures. Setting up policies and procedures in each country has been compared to an organ transplant; the critical question centers around acceptance or rejection. The major challenge to the international manager is to make sure that rejection is not a result of cultural myopia (近视) or even blindness.
Fortune examined the international performance of a dozen large companies that earn 20 percent or more of their revenue overseas. The internationally successful companies all share an important quality: patience. They have not rushed into situations but rather built their operations carefully by following the most basic business principles. These principles are to know your adversary, know your audience, and know your customer.
46. According to the passage, which of the following is true?
A. All international managers can learn culture.
B. Business diversity is not necessary.
C. Views differ on how to treat culture in business world.
D. Most people do not know foreign culture well.

A. both propose that companies should tailor business approaches to individual cultures.
B. both advocate that different policies be set up in different countries.
C. admit the existence of cultural diversity in business world.
