BBC新闻[翻译]:从少女妈妈到全球环游家长

发表时间:2018-11-04内容来源:VOA英语学习网

We've been swimming with turtles. We've done surfing. We've hiked mountains, flown over the Great Barrier Reef. Hi, my name is Rosie Charles and this is my daughter Ellie. We're travelling the world together. I became a teenage mum at the age of 16. And it was a complete shock. Doubting myself...but, you know, what new mother doesn't doubt themselves? In England, she was like my mum and my best friend. But over here, she is more like my mum, my sister, my best friend, and my teacher. Being a single mum, travelling around on your own, with your daughter, once a teenage mum, it's not the most traditional method of parenting.

Not everybody approved with, my family didn't approve. They wanted me to stay close at home. They wanted her to go to school. But I decided to go for it. I'm not going to lie, it was absolutely tough. I didn't feel ready for it. To be honest, I didn't even know how I did it. You know, those four years at university is a complete blur. But I managed to do it and I did it. I landed myself a really good job. I knew I needed to have a job where I could work from home or work online. So, I spent two years building up a business that I could work online in any location I wanted. I don't really want a family until when I am older. Because I want to travel the world and go to university and see other cultures beforehand. And although, you know, we've had the best life together and it was the best thing I've ever done, and it was really the making of me, I wouldn't want her to be a teenage mummy. It was still really, really tough. 

我们和海龟一起游泳。我们还去冲浪了。我们徒步爬山,飞越了大堡礁。嗨,我叫罗茜·查尔斯,这是我的女儿埃莉。我们现在在一起环游世界。我16岁成为了少女妈妈。完完全全震惊了。怀疑我自己能不能做好妈妈......但是你知道,哪个新母亲不怀疑自己?在英国,她像我的妈妈和我最好的朋友。但是在这里,她更像我的妈妈、我的姐姐、我最好的朋友和我的老师。作为一个未婚妈妈,一个曾经的少女妈妈,自己带着女儿环球旅行,并不是最传统的当父母的方式。不是每个人都赞成这么做,我的家人不支持我。他们想让我好好待在家里。他们想让她上学。但是我决定这么做了。我不会撒谎,(做少女妈妈)绝对是非常艰辛的事。我还没有准备好。说实话,我甚至不知道该怎么做。你知道我在大学的四年都是完全恍恍惚惚过来的。但是我努力了而且做到了。我给自己交了一份非常满意的答卷。我知道我需要一份可以让我在家或在线做的工作。所以我花了两年的时间建立自己的事业,可以允许我在任何我想要的地方在线工作。我确实想在岁数更大些的时候再组建家庭。因为在这之前我还想环游世界,上大学,体验其他的文化。虽然我们在一起过着最好的生活,当母亲是我做过的最棒的事情,而且真的成就了我,但是我不想她成为少女妈妈。因为真的、真的很艰辛。
