As children grow up, they inevitably face various challenges and difficulties. How to deal with them is a lesson that every child must learn. Today, I would like to recommend a classic TV series, “Anne with an E,” which tells the story of a young girl’s journey through the ups and downs of growing up.
The US TV series, with a rating of 9.1 on Douban, is based on the century-old classic Anne of Green Gables.The original was created in 1904, 118 years later, it has been remade into various versions of animation, drama, film and even musical. No matter how many remakes it has attracted generations of children and guided them to grow up.
Annie is not a good girl in the traditional sense.She is a talker, acting a little weird, good at causing trouble, always good intentions to do bad things. Her personality made her encounter more problems than her peers. However, with the kindness, bravery and full desire for knowledge, she grew up rapidly in the predicament, formed the correct self-values, and won the unanimous recognition of the people around her.
Whenever my child experiences frustration and lack of confidence, I will use Anne’s experience to encourage him.
The play is suitable for the middle and high grades of primary school. If the child is still young, it is recommended to collect it in advance! Of course,This is also a show for parents. Annie will also help you understand your child better
Passion, curiosity, imagination
is a good way to deal with life's dilemmas.
At the age of 13, Anne is an orphan who has experienced many hardships and abuse in orphanages and strange families. By chance, she was sent to Prince Edward Island to meet her adoptive siblings, Matthew and Marilla.
Off the train, she sat alone outside the platform, waiting for Matthew, she was very uneasy: what kind of person will adopt her? Will they like themselves? What will she do if no one comes to pick her up?
A little girl, only more than ten years old, came to a strange environment alone, which made her very anxious and uneasy.But she soon soothed herself with her imagination:
Seeing the tall wild cherry tree not far away, she thought that if no one came to pick her up, she would climb up the waist of the tree and spend the night. She told herself to be strong: “There is no need to be afraid, sleeping in the white cherry blossoms, the moon is full of the whole body, very comfortable.”
More than just imagination, Anne also has an eye for beauty and a passion and curiosity for life.
On the way to the farm, Anne chattered about her past and dreams, about her longing for a new life, even naming shaded paths and lakes, and affectionately calling the ponies “Belle.”
Coming to an unfamiliar environment was only the first test Anne faced. Matthew and his siblings were disappointed to see Anne. It turned out that they had always wanted to adopt a boy to help them with the farm. But the agent made a mistake and sent Annie, a skinny little girl.
Her sister Marilla said bluntly that she would not leave Annie, which frightened Anne. She did not want to be abandoned again and again. She spoke bravely and nervously about her strengths and fought for opportunities for herself. She said eagerly to Marilla that the girl could work, and that she could do it.
But she couldn’t convince Marilla, and they decided to send her away. Annie cried sadly.
The next day, Annie adjusted and decided to accept reality. As Marilla walked her home,A dog came out, the horses were frightened, and Annie was thrown from the carriage. But instead of panicking or crying, Annie quickly got up and scolded the dog and calmed the horse.
Her cool, competent appearance changed Marilla’s impression of the little girl.Annie used her optimism, courage, cleverness, and enthusiasm for life to win a five-day “trial period” for herself.Began her legend in the small town.
Anne would cry, but she wouldn’t cry all the time. She would fight for it and be brave enough to speak her mind.Use your imagination to make armor and accept the setbacks that life brings.Her optimistic and strong spirit is worth learning from every child.
Kindness, bravery and knowledge
is a great way to beat prejudice and gain acceptance.
Anne managed to stay on the farm, but integrating into the town was not easy.
As an orphan, Anne was not well educated. She looks not outstanding, not elegant, often say some strange words, is a lot of people in the eyes of the “strange girl.”
Anne met a friend at Green Gables named Diana. But Diana’s mother did not want them to play together, for fear that Anne would teach her a bad lesson.
In order for Anne to grow up better, Matthew and Marilla sent her to school. The first day of school was not pleasant. Annie did not know the classroom rule of “no speaking without being named.” Coupled with her identity as an orphan, she was ridiculed by the teachers and classmates.
Annie and her friends caught the teacher stroking a girl. Annie said they were making children, because when she was a servant, she heard that children came like this. Because of this, she was excluded from the group of girls.
In class, some boys deliberately misbehaved, throwing spitballs at her and pulling her hair. She got angry and hit the boy with her clipboard. The teacher scolded her for being unruly, punished her by standing in front of the platform and writing on the blackboard: “Annie has a bad temper!”
Annie rushed out of the classroom and ran away without looking back.
Her neighbors, teachers, and classmates didn’t like her. Annie dropped out of school.She is not willing to deliberately please, do not want to compromise to be bullied.
Matthew and Marilla were also distressed. They understood that none of this was Anne’s fault, because she had suffered more than anyone close to her could imagine. But they didn’t know what to do. Should they force Anne to go to school or leave her at home?
That was the most difficult time for Anne. She seemed to have a home, but no one else recognized her.
But Annie is not a useless little girl.
The people of Lut’s house were on fire, and they could not stop the fire. At this time, Annie rushed into the fire alone, closed the doors and windows, and blocked the gap with a damp quilt. Those outside continued to fight the fire and soon brought it under control.
It turned out that Annie had read in the orphanage’s fire manual that fire needed oxygen, and closing the doors and windows would cut off the source of oxygen. Hearing Anne’s explanation, the people of the town were very moved, and Anne used her knowledge and courage to prevent a greater disaster.
From then on, Ruby became Annie’s friend, and the neighbors took a different view of the straight-talking, strange-tempered little girl.
On another occasion, Diana’s sister suddenly had a high fever, and the adults were not at home. Diana was anxious to find Anne. Annie, who had experience caring for children, judged it to be acute laryngitis. She did not panic, methodically arranged to boil water, cool down, induce vomiting, etc., before the arrival of the doctor stabilized her sister’s condition.
Anne won the approval of the townspeople with her kindness, wit and knowledge.
Annie went back to school. This time, she also changed her old ways. She learned to adapt to the school rules, observe classroom discipline, and try to control her temper.
She studied very hard, studied hard, and soon caught up with everyone. She got good grades, was decisive and brave, and won the admiration of her friends.
In fact, every child wants to be recognized by the people around him, but the process is often not smooth sailing.In the face of others’ lack of understanding, Annie insists on being herself, not to seek recognition and change, but to help others with her own ability and knowledge and win respect.”In the process, it also gives everyone a more intuitive understanding of themselves.
And in this long process,Annie also realized that to win recognition and integrate into the group, she had to change her bad habits.She’s not running away, trying to learn to be better. She learned to speak properly and to control her bad temper.
What moved me most was Matthew and Marilla, who, although they were of the older generation, always understood and comforted Anne at the first time. The unconditional love from her family is also Anne’s greatest strength against the collective exclusion.
Looks don't tell you everything about a person.
A strong heart can reflect the value of the individual
Annie was not good-looking. She had freckles and red hair, and she was laughed at for that. The neighbor’s wife, meeting Annie for the first time, said bluntly: “The boy is so thin and plain. Look at all those freckles. Hair like a carrot…”
Anne had heard much of the same, and she herself was not satisfied with her appearance. On her first day of school, her biggest worry was red hair and freckles. She thought it would be easier for her classmates to like her if she was prettier.
She tried to hide her red hair, with garlands and ornaments. She imagined herself as a tree that changed colors with the seasons. But none of this had any effect, and looking at herself in the mirror, she could not help but pray that she would look better.
Until one day, she got a bottle of hair dye. She was so excited that she immediately dyed her pesky red hair into her dream black hair.
But after she really dyed it black, she found that black hair was not suitable for her, and tried to wash out the dye with bleach, and her hair turned green!
Anne was crying so hard that Marilla, feeling angry and amused, cut her hair short. Later, Anne had to go to school with short, green hair. Of course, the students laughed again.
Short green hair is ugly, but people who love her still love her after laughing.
And short hair has its advantages. She has been mistaken for a boy several times and has been paid to help with her work. Later, the school held a Christmas play, she also played the leading role, superb acting was praised.
Annie began to understand,A person’s value is the key to their own, a strong heart is far more important than appearance.She accepted her distinctive red hair.
At the town reading, Anne spoke out loud: “I don’t want to be anybody but myself. Even if there is no diamond, no beautiful skin, no expensive clothing decoration, it does not matter.Wearing my pearl necklace and being Anne of Green Gables, I would be perfectly content.”
As a child, Anne prayed countless times that she would grow up to be a beauty. But on her 16th birthday, she was still a red-haired girl with freckles. She thought the idea of ever wanting to be beautiful was childish. She realized that she was special, from the heart to the personality, along with the red hair is also a unique symbol.
She learned to accept and embrace herself.
Children in primary school, will be particularly concerned about their appearance, anxiety and worry, then you can look at Anne’s story.I also recommend the picture book “Cute Little Freckles,” which tells the story of Hollywood star Julianne Moore how to face her freckles. Their stories can teach children to accept their imperfect selves bravely, and learn to recognize and love themselves.
The warmth of nature and family
Is the worst enemy of trouble
This play heals me, in addition to the growing Annie, as well as the beautiful scenery of Prince Edward Island, and the warmth and love that the Matthew brothers and sisters bring to Anne’s family.
When Annie is in a bad mood, she often goes to nature, confides in the flowers and plants, or chats with the butterflies, and then her mood will be much lighter.
She liked to stand up against the wind, with open arms, and the wind whistled past her side, as if blowing away her sadness.
At one point, Anne was pointed out at a party that she was an orphan and might steal. Angry and angry, Annie ran out crying. She ran through the trees. She lay down under a huge tree.
Fortunately, Marilla came, she understood Anne’s grievance. They talked for a long time under the tree. At last Annie felt better and they went home together.
The most beautiful scenery and the warmest friendship in the world can cure most troubles. When Anne travels with her family, she forgets everything. Her mouth was always full of talk, and Matthew and Marilla never liked her noisy.
Under Anne’s influence, Matthew and Marilla would also temporarily leave their busy farm work and accompany Anne to the seaside. They also enjoy such simple pleasures.
Annie knows the healing power of nature. She had a secret tree house in the forest, and after a dispute with her classmates, she would go there alone to adjust her mood, sometimes making up stories, sometimes losing her temper at the stake.
She would also invite her friends to the tree house to share stories and share each other’s troubles and little secrets.
Growing up, Anne had countless problems. However, the love of her family sustained her through the most difficult years, friendship made her strong, and the scenery of nature healed her countless times. Later, she successfully admitted to the university, wish to become a teacher in his hometown.
Annie will live as the most desirable appearance, optimistic, enthusiastic, brave. Looking back at the troubles of her youth, her heart is only grateful. It was in solving those problems that she became her unique self.
There is an “Annie” in every child’s heart. They are sometimes rebellious, occasionally noisy, often troubled. And each of us as parents should be their Matthew and Marilla, discover their shining points, help them through failure and hesitation, and guide them to be unique.
