Text A Spilt Milk

Have you heard of the story about spilt milk? Well, we all know there is no use crying over spilt milk. But this story is different. I would hope all parents would respond in this manner.

打翻的牛奶

你是否听过打翻的牛奶的故事?我们都知道为已经打翻的牛奶哭泣是没有用的。不过这次的故事不同。我希望所有父母都能作出如此回应。

I recently heard a story about a famous research scientist who had made several very important medical breakthroughs. He was interviewed by a newspaper reporter who asked him why he was so much more creative than the average person; what set him so far apart from others?

最近我听到一个故事,故事的主角是一个在医学领域取得多项重大突破的知名科学家。在一次报社记者对他的采访中,记者问他为什么他比普通人更富有创造力,是什么让他如此与众不同。

He responded that, in his opinion, it all came from an experience with his mother that occurred when he was about two years old. He had been trying to remove a bottle of milk from the refrigerator when he lost his grip on the slippery bottle and it fell, spilling its contents all over the kitchen floor — a veritable (十足的) sea of milk!

他回答道,在他看来,这全部源于他两岁时和妈妈的一次共同的经历。他试图从冰箱里取出一瓶牛奶,却没有抓住光滑的瓶子,瓶子掉了,牛奶洒得厨房满地都是——白花花的一片。

When his mother came into the kitchen, instead of yelling at him, giving him a lecture, or punishing him, she said, "Robert, what a great wonderful mess you have made! I have rarely seen such a huge puddle of milk. Well, the damage has already been done. Would you like to get down and play in the milk for a few minutes before we clean it up?"

他妈妈走进厨房时,没有对他大吼大叫,没有训斥他或惩罚他,而是对他说:“罗伯特,瞧你把地板弄得,多么的壮观啊!我几乎从未见过这么大的一摊牛奶。噢,既然损失已经造成了,你要不要下来玩一会牛奶我们再打扫?”

Indeed, he did. After a few minutes, his mother said, "You know, Robert, whenever you make a mess like this, eventually you have to clean it up and restore everything to its proper order. So, how would you like to do that? We could use a sponge, a towel, or a mop. Which do you prefer?" He chose the sponge and together they cleaned up the spilt milk.

他真的在一地的牛奶上玩了一会儿。几分钟后,妈妈又说:“罗伯特,你要知道,每次像这样搞得一团糟,最终还是要收拾干净,让一切恢复原位。所以,你看该怎么打扫好呢?我们可以使用一块海绵、一条毛巾或者一个拖把。你喜欢用哪一个呢?”他选择了海绵,并和妈妈一起把地板上的牛奶打扫干净。

His mother then said, "You know, what we have here is a failed experiment in how to effectively carry a big milk bottle with two tiny hands. Let's go out in the back yard and fill the bottle with water and see if you can discover a way to carry it without dropping it." The little boy learned that if he grasped the bottle at the top near the lip with both hands, he could carry it without dropping it. What a wonderful lesson!

他妈妈接着对他说:“你知道,今天我们实际上做了个实验——如何用两只小手稳妥地端一个大的牛奶瓶,可惜我们的实验失败了。那我们去后院继续做实验吧,给瓶子里装上水,看看你能不能发现用什么方法端这个瓶子它不会掉。”于是这个小男孩学会了用双手抓住瓶子上面靠近瓶盖的位置,这样端的时候瓶子就不会掉。多么美妙的一堂课!

The renowned scientist remarked that it was at that moment that he knew he didn't need to be afraid to make mistakes. Instead, he learned that mistakes were just opportunities for learning something new, which is, after all, what scientific experiments are all about(真谛). Even if the experiment " doesn't work", we usually learn something valuable from it.

这位著名的科学家谈论道,正是在那一刻他明白了无需害怕犯错误。相反,他认识到错误正是学习新东西的机会,毕竟任何科学实验都是如此。’即使实验“行不通”,我们往往也能从中得到一些宝贵的经验。

Wouldn't it be great if all parents would respond (in)the way Robert's mother responded to him?

如果所有家长都像罗伯特的妈妈那样对待孩子该有多好啊。
