In theUnited States, most families have two or three children, and there are also even larger families.

在美国,大多数家庭有都两个或者三个孩子,甚至有更大的家庭。

Certainly, children live together with their parents. But when the children have families, they will move out and have their own house. Parents usually keep in touch with their grown children and take great interest in their grandchildren. On holidays, members of the larger family——grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins——often have meals together.

当然,孩子和他们的父母住在一起。当孩子们有家庭的时候,他们将搬到外居住并且拥有自己的房子。父母通常和他们的孩子保持联系,很关心他们的孙子孙女。假期,大家庭的成员:外祖父母、姑姑、叔叔和堂兄妹,经常聚在一起吃饭。

Bothe Mother and Father can have a voice in the family, but not all families are run this way. Many families still live by the old rule that Father’s word is law.

在家里妈妈和爸爸都有发言权,并不是所有的家庭都是这种方式。许多的家庭仍然遵循爸爸的话就是法律的旧传统。

Now, some mothers do not stay at home any longer. They also go out go work. Today, about 10 million American mothers with children under eighteen have jobs. In some families, mothers have to work because the father can neither find jobs nor make enough money .in other families, the mother may work to make more money so the family can enjoy a better life. Many working mothers have to look for a cleaning woman on day or more days a week to help with housework and look after the children.

现在,一些妈妈不再待在家里,她们也出去工作。今天,大约一亿美国妈妈和十八岁以下的孩子们都有了工作。一些家庭,妈妈出去工作,是因为爸爸能找到工作但不能赚足够的钱。另一些家庭,妈妈工作赚的钱能使家庭享受好一点的生活。许多工作的妈妈每周一天或者更多的天必须要找一个清洁妇女来帮助他们做家务和照顾孩子。
