Show your love this Christmas

Have you ever had an argument with a family member?

I think the best way to settle a dispute is to calmly discuss the problem, although that can be easier said than done.

If we become angry, we should try to control our temper because we could say something that we might regret. If we say something hurtful to our family members, it might cause permanent damage.

Think before arguing with your parents

Some time ago, I had a terrible argument with my mother.

It was a Saturday night. I remember wandering the streets late with my friends. I got home only to be confronted by my angry mother sitting on the sofa.

'Why did you come home so late? It's already half past 10!' she shouted.

'I . . . '' I muttered trying to come up with an explanation.

Don't compare yourself to others

I'm a Form Two student and I'm not very happy.

My classmates are brighter than me. They always talk about studies and homework, which makes me feel uncomfortable.

When I want to play with them during recess or lunchtime, they are always busy doing their schoolwork. This means I have to play with students from other classes.

Don't be too harsh on yourself

Since studying in Form Four this year, I've noticed several changes. While I was in junior secondary school , I always felt happy and relaxed. I never worried about dictations or tests. I studied and played and didn't worry much.

Think positive and you'll be happy

I'm reading a book called Everyday Reminders for Life. It contains meaningful stories which make me smile. They are about the mistakes people make. The book helps readers to think about how they live and treat others.

Appreciate what you've got

Recently, my school organised a trip to the mainland. The most memorable activity was visiting a farm.

The first person we visited was an old lady. She has a big family and her home was dirty.

They use firewood for cooking and have to walk to a water pump every day. One of her sons owns a restaurant.

Take a break and refresh your mind

For students sitting their A-Levels next year, working hard will be an essential part of their lives.

They spend most of their time studying and neglect to exercise. Exercise is good for our health. If we do enough exercise, we won't easily fall ill.

Exercise keeps you fit - and healthy

I usually feel sick and dizzy after exercise. I fall ill very easily, especially with flu.

When I'm on a bus or a train, I can feel my body picking up bugs whenever the people around me cough and sneeze.

Experts say we should do more exercise to maintain good health and fight off illness.
