Read the poem aloud and discuss what the title means with your partner.
Mom Knows Best When I was a tiny ?baby crying all night，my mom sang to me and stayed by my side. When I was tired and hungry，she gave me food and warm arms to sleep in. When I was two running through the field，she made sure I was safe and kept me from danger ?.
When I fell and hurt myself，she gave me a hug and lifted? me up.
When I was seven coughing badly，she said no icecream
for me. But I talked back loudly，“I should be allowed to eat
some！Give it to me now！” When I was nine watching scary movies，she said it’d
give me awful dreams. But I shouted back angrily，“I should be allowed to
watch it! I’m not a baby！”
When I was a teen going out with friends，she said， “Please be back by ten！”
But I talked back again—“I should not be told what to do! I'm seventeen now！”
Now I’m an adult，thinking back to those times.
I coughed for days after eating that icecream And had
scary dreams after watching that film.I was late for school from staying out past ten.I regret ? talking back，not listening to Mom.Mom knows best，and for me she wanted
only the best!

知识点 3 lift /l?ft/ v.举起；抬高 n.电梯；搭便车 eg：Tom is strong enough to lift the box.
汤姆足够强壮，能提起这个箱子。 考向一【难点】【辨析】 lift，rise与raise
lift 指用体力或机械把某物“提”到一定的高度。 rise 不及物动词，表示自然升起，说明主语自身由低到高的变化过程。 raise 及物动词，表示在外力的作用下“提升”。
考向二 lift 作可数名词，意为“电梯；搭便车”。 常用短语：give sb. a lift 让某人搭便车。 eg: We take the lift to go up and down. 我们乘电梯上下。 He gave me a lift to the station. 他用车顺便送我到车站。

我很抱歉麻烦了你那么久。 I regret to tell you that you didn’t pass the exam. 我很遗憾地告诉你，你没有通过这次考试。
巧记既能接不定式，又能接动名词，但意 义不同的动词或词组：记住（remember） 又忘记（forget），try doing 是尝试, try to do 更努力，后悔（regret）继续（go on） 停（stop）。
典例 I regret ____B____ my daughter to the shopping center. She is always running everywhere. A．take B．taking C．takes D．to take
【点拨】用语境法解题。由第二句可知第一句意思为“我 后悔把我的女儿带到购物中心。”表示事情已经发生了， 用“regret doing sth.”。
