Dear Luke,

My daughter Angela is very quiet. She seldom talks to us, and she does not have any friends. What’s worse, she is not interested in studying. All she does every day is watch TV and play computer games. I have told her hundreds of times that she should study hard, but she does not listen to me. What should I do?

Tim



Dear Tim,

The problem with Angela is not that she does not study, but that she does not talk to people. If she can make some friends, her life will be more interesting.

Perhaps Angela has had this problem for a long time. It won’t be solved soon. You should spend more time with her and help her. This is the homework both you and your daughter need to do!

Many people know Robert Schumann was an important musician, but they do not know that his wife, Clara Wieck Schumann, was in fact more famous than he in their time.

Clara was born in 1819. In her time, most women did not appear before the public. Clara, however, started to play the piano in public at the age of nine and was very successful.

In 1840, Clara got married. She became very busy with the housework and her children. It was hard for her to find time to practice the piano. But Clara could never forget her love for music; she felt she had to share it with other people. In 1842, Clara began to play in public again.

When Robert died in 1856, Clara had to make money for their seven children by herself. She taught music and played the piano around Europe. During this hard time, music always gave her comfort and joy. Clara died at 77. Now she is still thought to be one of the best musicians in history.
