宝宝4岁了,在上pre-school。
今天早上告诉我:妈妈,老师问我where are you from? 我然后回答:Illinois,
Chicago”
我-----宝宝回答得很正确
宝宝----老师说错了,she said you are from China
我----。。。。。。
宝宝-----Audi is from Indian because she has black face and black hair, and
I have black hair too.
我------黑头发最漂亮了,妈妈最爱你的黑头发了。
可是我现在思考一个问题。我要如何让孩子有一个正确的自我意识,我有想到去找学校
的director,告诉她我不喜欢老师问这种问题。
可是上网查了一下,发现会不断地被这个问题问
http://dcentric.wamu.org/2011/04/where-are-you-from-thoughts-fr
所以是否应该及早地找到一个合适的方法,解决她将来的这个困惑。
大家有什么好的建议么?

"I am from China and our president is from Africa"
And when the kid is older, she can say""I am from China, Barack Obama is from Africa and Sonia Sotomayor is from Puerto Rico".

我觉得这老师不对吧,如果是问祖籍,好象不应该是问这句话
美国出生的回答芝加哥很正常啊

ft...这个老师好像比较红脖子。也可能她想给小朋友灌输diversity的概念,可惜弄巧
成拙,呵呵
我认为正确的说法是——
I'm from Chicago, my parents are from China

I think the right answer is- my family originally came from mainland China.
When strangers ask this questions, if I say I am from Chicago, they all look
confused.

这个老师的问题和更正都很奇怪。如果不是水平较低,词不达意的话,那就是见识水平
很局限了。

'Where are you from?' is not the right question
April 05, 2010|By Moustafa Bayoumi, Special to CNN
We all have things that we can't stand but must routinely put up with. Here
are a few of mine: slow elevators, outrageous bank fees and being asked the
question, "Where are you from?"
Everybody hates the first two, but why am I so opposed to the last one?
For starters, I know the impatient looks that will follow when I answer with
where I live (Brooklyn) or where I grew up (Canada), or where I was born (
Switzerland).
That last one, by the way, really seems to throw people for a loop. (My
parents were graduate students in Zürich when I landed on this earth.) What
often follows next is that the person asking me the question either
congratulates me on speaking English well or, confused by my answers, looks
at me like I don't understand English. The next question, though, is always
the same:
But where are you really from?
Of course I know what they mean, and the people who ask me this (almost)
never have any real malice in mind. They're not saying I couldn't possibly
be American. Rather, something about me -- perhaps my name or the color of
my skin -- has lit their curiosity. Still, I've always resented the question
because it implies that I can only really and authentically be one thing,
the one thing, incidentally, that I had no choice in choosing and have no
power to change.
I don't want to be misunderstood. Like millions of other Americans, I, too,
have a hyphenated identity.
Left of the hyphen, I'm Egyptian, and a very proud one to boot. But that's
not all I am.
I'm also a writer, a professor, a Muslim, a German speaker, a passionate (
but terrible) singer, a lousy swimmer, a New Yorker, an Arab, the youngest
of three children, a drinker of way too much coffee, a lover of W.B. Yeats'
poetry, a hater of injustice, a husband, a frequent flyer, and, according to
my wife, a person in some serious denial that he's getting older.
The question "Where are you from?" may help others locate me, but it will
never describe me.

大人不让孩子觉得从中国来不如从芝加哥来, 小朋友其实不会介意自己到底从哪儿来

俺们这里印度孩子中国孩子一大堆, 都很自豪地说自己是印度人中国人。给白人小男
孩很大压力。终于回家问来他的祖先从爱尔兰来。 从此自豪地说自己是爱尔兰人。

是不同, 但是小朋友们经常混着说。我不觉得他们明白区别。
就说这个小男孩吧。他就是有一天冲过来特激动跟我说“xxx's mom, I'm from
Ireland。 Really!"。那时候他们也就4岁吧。

实际上这是个很普遍的问题,在中国, 也就是在咱们这儿, 也是常有人好奇问这个问题
象这样的就很不容易回答,后来我就琢磨了个办法, 尽量找一个最容易让对方满足好奇
心的
答案,虽然这个答案不一定准确,呵呵

我觉得这个问题得看上下文。幼儿园的小朋友基本上都住附近,多数是本地出生。老师
问的时候应该是想问他们的家庭originally来自哪里。我们到旅游的地方,有人问我们
来自哪里,显然是想知道我们现在的家住在哪里。圣诞节的时候在海边碰到一家人和我
们来自同一个城市,都是开车去的,还觉得挺亲切。
