The retired professor, Archibald A. Hill in Lousciville, USA could tell us the story. Ninety-seven years ago, two of Mr. Archibald Hill’s aunts, Miss Patty Hill and Miss Mildred Hill were asked to write some songs for a book called “Song Storied for the Sunday Morning”.

One of them was the famous “Good Morning to You.” The song said, “Good morning to you, good morning to you, dear children, good morning to all.” This song was very popular at that time among kindergarten children. But not many grown-ups knew it. A few years later little Archibald was born.

Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday, dear Archie! Happy birthday to you!

It might help to understand a little about the nature of worry and what it is. With worrying, the important thing is to understand if you can take action(采取行动) that will reduce(减少) your worry and help you avoid whatever you’re worrying about. For example, you might want to study for the test next time! It’s a case(情况) that a little worry can be helpful. You’re worried about the test, so you get down to(着手于) your studies.
About a quarter of the kids say they turn to the Internet when they are worried. That can be helpful in some cases---- like when you’re on this website, we hope! You might want to use it as a starting point and then talk to someone about what you learned on the Internet. But the Internet may not be enough for some worries.
Only 9% say they try to do something about what is causing their worries, and about 25% of kids keep their worries to themselves. Kids don’t have to tell everyone everything, but if they have serious worries, it’s usually best to turn to someone who can help. Parents and friends are the top choices, but some kids say they talk to teachers(13%) or doctors and nurses(4%).
Sometimes worry gets to be too much. It can make small problems seem bigger than they are. And if the problem is actually a big one, just worrying about it probably won’t help. Worry can even hurt your sleep and keep you from having fun and doing your best. But we don’t wish you to worry about worrying!
44. Worry might be useful when _________.
A. it can help you sleep longer than ever B. it can make you work harder at your lessons
C. it can make you more pleased D. it can help you get in touch with your teacher
