1.Why do people always miss their childhood?
I think it’s a case of not so much missing when they were a child, but missing the lack of responsibility and worries that came with being a child. I mean, we are talking about a time in most people’s lives where they did not have to work or worry too much about their future.
lack of responsibility 缺乏责任感
2.Are kids happier than adults? Why?
I would say so, yeah. See, children have a very innocent world view and think the best of everyone. Most children also haven’t gone through tough experiences. When you become an adult, you realise that life isn’t all rainbows and sunshine. In addition, you also face societal pressures that can make you unhappy.

3.Why do people still remember many of their friends from primary school?
Well, we’re referring to a time in their life where things were simple and life had minimal struggles. It could be something as simple as nostalgia for those good times, and those good times were spent with those primary school friends. Since we have fond memories of those times, we remember them better. So by extension, we remember our friends from primary school.
minimal struggles 几乎没有任何难事
fond memories 美好的回忆
by extension 引申开来
4. What kinds of primary school teachers will impress students?
The ones who genuinely care about their students will always be the ones who impress the students. There are some teachers there. They are only interested in their pay. Occasionally though, you get passionate teachers who genuinely want their students to succeed. Those are the ones who students will remember fondly.
