Reading Comprehension

Passage One: PARENTING STYLES

When a newborn cries throughout the night, parents can feel at a loss. If they turn to expert advice, they find that even experts disagree on the best solution. The two most popular techniques could not be more contradictory: One encourages parents to let the infant cry himself to sleep. The other encourages "co-sleeping," or letting the infant sleep in the parents’ bed.

In the first technique, popularized by Dr. Richard Ferber, parents are encouraged to stick to a strict schedule and teach the infant to adapt. The infant sleeps in a separate room; if he cries, the parents should wait five minutes to check on him. The next time he cries, the parents wait ten minutes. The next time, they wait fifteen. Gradually, the theory goes, the child learns to get back to sleep on his own. This is often called the “cry it out” solution.

At the other end of the spectrum is “attachment parenting.” This technique was developed by Dr. William Sears, who argues that the parents should be available to care for the infant if he cries. This technique helps the infant feel that he can rely on his parents to take care of him.

Both sides have their critics. Ferber’s technique seems callous and uncaring to some, and Sears’s technique seems unsympathetic to sleep-deprived parents. In the end, parents must rely on the only tried and true technique: trial and error.

4. The main purpose of this passage is:
To inform readers of two options available to parents of newborns.
To convince readers that the “cry it out” method is best.
To convince readers that “attachment parenting” is best.

5. The meaning nearest to the word co-sleeping is:

To take turns sleeping

Examples of these problematic beliefs are statements such as, “Everyone should love me” and “I must never be wrong.”

1] Albert Ellis created Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy in the 1950s. 2] His primary aim was to help people overcome the problematic beliefs that cause them unhappiness. 3] Ellis observed that most negative emotions are due to beliefs that come in the form of commands containing words like “should,” “ought,” or “must.” 4] For instance, someone who is upset because a coworker complained about him to his boss could analyze his response and find that the source of the unpleasant emotion is the belief that “everyone must approve of me.”

Supporters of HFCS, however, point to research that shows no connection to obesity at all.

1] High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a sweetener used in many foods and soft drinks. 2] HFCS is created by grinding corn into corn starch, processing the starch to turn it into corn syrup, and then treating it with enzymes to turn it into fructose. 3] The result is a cheap, very sweet syrup that shows up in many of the food and drinks we consume every day, particularly soft drinks. 4] Critics of HFCS cite research that seems to prove that it increases obesity. 5] Another controversy concerns the use of the phrase “natural ingredients” on products containing HFCS. 6] Supporters say that it can be called natural because it comes from corn, but critics argue that after all the processing it is put through, it is no longer appropriate to call it “natural.”
