Взаимоотношения в семье
Раздел 2. (задания по чтению)
A. Of course, as your children grow, marry and have children of their own, it is not as easy
to spend each holiday together. Be flexible and either alternate holidays or pick a few
specific holidays where the entire family will be together. Sometimes it sounds like an
overwhelming feat, especially if you have a large family, but as I said, children, even
when they become adults, need those special occasions and traditions and they will go
out of their way to make sure they happen.
B. If you are lucky enough to have a sister, you already know that is a special bond unlike
any other. Many factors can affect your relationship with your sister as you get older,
however, such as age differences, geographic location, new family responsibilities - even
sibling rivalry!
C. If your sister-in-law is much younger than you, then it will be very easy for you to win
her over. Little girls love spending time with their big brother’s girlfriends, and you’re
this little girl’s big brother’s wife, so she’s going to be elated to spend time with you.
Play together with Barbie dolls, or ask her to help you decorate some Christmas cookies.
Become her friend, and take an active interest in her, and she will love you forever.
D. When parents are surveyed on the subject of favoritism, nearly all respondents say that
despite their best efforts to the contrary, they have favored one child over another at least
occasionally. I see the frustration and behavior problems in our oldest child resulting
from the favoritism their father shows our youngest child,” said one parent in response to
a recent Vision survey on the topic. “It is a very serious problem in our family.”
E. A new "grannies-for-rent" service in Poland brings together elderly people without
families, and people who miss having real grandparents. A local University for the
Elderly set up the programme, which aims to benefit people from all generations.
F. Unfortunately for many, home can be anything but a safe haven. Men and women alike
may find their home a fierce battleground. For children it may be where they are most
vulnerable to assault, misuse or deprivation, ironically at the very hands of those who
have a duty to safeguard and nourish them. Even the elderly may have reason to fear
those who should be their caretakers.
G. Parents give an enormous amount to their children, and as a result they’re extremely
invested in them, in helping them grow and thrive. They look out for their interests, stay
up with them when they’re sick, clean up their messes when they’re sick - all of that
investment helps the child grow and feel secure.

Frequency of Cheating
Relationship cheating is a very common occurrence. If you haven’t experienced it yet, there’s
a good chance you eventually will.
I found it difficult to track down good cheating statistics. Slightly more than half of all
married people will cheat on their spouses at some point in their lives. Men apparently cheat
more often than women, but the gap isn’t huge.
Most of the time cheating does occur, the other spouse doesn’t know about it, with women
being in the dark slightly more often than men.
That’s if you’re married. If you’re in a committed relationship but aren’t married, then I’d
imagine that the odds of cheating are even higher. Partly I say that because cheating is more
common when you’re younger and becomes less likely as you age.
The big game-changer here is the Internet, which makes even 10-year old stats seem very
dated now. Recent surveys suggest that most people have flirted online at one point or another,
that when people spend time in chat rooms they’re usually motivated by romantic interest, and
that about a third of adults have had real relations as a result of a connection that began online.
In the USA alone, tens of millions of people cheat on their primary relationship partners.
Most of the time when people cheat, they hide it from their partners, and they usually succeed in
doing so, not because they’re so great at keeping secrets but mainly because their partners fail to
recognize and acknowledge the telltale signs.
Statistically speaking, if you get involved in committed relationships or marriage, the odds are
better than 50–50 that you’re eventually going to cheat at some point in your life. And you’ll
probably hide it from your primary partner, and you’ll probably get away with it.
Of course you can decline to join this group if you desire so. However, there’s still a good
chance you’ll end up in a relationship with someone else who’s a member, and you probably
won’t know. Or you’ll know, but you’ll retreat into denial about it.

Задание С1
Dear Molly,
I’m glad you’ve finally written to me. I do remember you’ve a big family. I think it’s so good to
have time together in every possible way. You seem to enjoy each other’s company. If it’s a
problem to find a place to spend a weekend you may stay home and read a book or watch a
family film. You may also play some games like football outside if the weather is nice.
As for our family we seldom spend time together. Mom prefers to watch serials or look through
a magazine, dad works a lot and spends almost every weekend in the office, so I usually go out
with my friends.
See you soon,
