【看CP學英文】週日,一對父母在網路論壇PTT發文,分享自己帶3歲女兒爬玉山的艱辛過程,將登玉山列為「人生必做清單」, 然而,這則文章分享引發網友爭議,許多人認為帶這麼小的女兒上山「根本是在玩命」。

A young couple recently shared their hike with their 3-year-old daughter on PTT, a local forum often called the Taiwanese Reddit, calling their journey to the top of Jade Mountain (Mt. Yushan) “a thing in their bucket list.”

The short story, however, drew public backlashes among netizens who argued that it was too dangerous to hike with such a young kid.

Yushan, standing at 3,952 meters above the sea level, is the highest peak in Taiwan. 

文章內文寫道,他們曾帶女兒爬過國內外數十條國家步道,包括石門山、七星山、合歡群峰,並強調女兒三月底已3歲1個月,勉強能使用背巾,且能夠清楚表達自己哪裡不舒服。

Well, the parents said that they had hiked in more than ten national trails so far, such as Shihmenshan, Qixing Mountain and Hehuanshan with their little daughter. Besides, they thought their child is old enough to express her feelings. 

自主訓練一個月,即使天氣顯示雷陣雨、濃霧仍決定從台北出發。一家人抵達登山口起登,一路上受到許多山友的鼓勵與勸退,「鼓勵讚美的我們收下,勸退的我們一律回絕」。

After one month of training, they set off from Taipei and headed to Yushan trailhead in Nantou County even though the weather forecast showed lightings and rain sprinkles, the parents explained.

Along the way, they received praise for their courage but also warnings from other hikers; however, they insisted on continuing their journey and stuck with their plans, the parents added.

針對這篇文章,有部分網友表示相當佩服那位3歲小孩。

Other netizens said they admired the little girl’s courage.

另一方面,有部分網友留言表示不認同這樣危險的行為,「唉…小孩沒得選擇真可憐」、「不是你們生下她就擁有她的生命,虛榮父母」、「想勸勸三思而後行」。

Yet, many scolded the parents for their reckless behavior, saying “the poor kid can’t make her own decision.” Another said, “Giving birth to her doesn’t mean that you own her life.” A third person said: “You should think twice before you leap.”

後來,網友發現,媽媽早已在臉書粉絲團PO過登玉山心得,提到當時僅背著一個普通通勤背包、帶著三歲女兒輕裝上玉山。

Ahead of this controversial post, the mother also shared her hiking story to Facebook, saying that they only brought a commuter backpack for the hike.

此文後來被分享到PTT網站,引發網友罵聲不斷,認為父母裝備經驗都不足,拿命在開玩笑。

Afterward, the Facebook post was reposted on PTT which triggered the public backlash. With little hiking experience in hiking, the parents risked their lives and the life of their child on this journey, netizens argued.
