So why do you need to, are you writing a report on it, ?
If so, tell us about it and what you may want to write and we can help you with a report

Mar 18, 2011, 08:08 PM
Then let us know what you have. Site rules prohibit us doing your homework, but we don't mind helping you when you have it done.

Mar 18, 2011, 08:20 PM
If you read the rules you would know that we are not able to do your homework for you.
If you want to do your report we would be happy to critique it for you.
Mar 18, 2011, 08:25 PM

In this article,” Mom rewards 13 yr old girl for smoking and having sex”, it talks about a mother who rewards her daughter for misbehavior.
Tracy Holt did not punish her daughter, 13, Sam for hanging around with her friends in the street, drinking cans of lager and smoking pot she did not see the point in punishing her. If she punishes her, she is punishing herself. She fears that she’d have to put up with her in the house. Instead, she rewards her by giving her cigarettes.
When Sam told her mother she lost her virginity, her mother was shocked, but did not show her true feelings. She thought she was joking and was disappointed, but she still did not punish her. She took her to the doctor to put her on the pill and to use condoms.

It's badly written and is nearly a copy of the article.
Should I tweak it? :)

I'll start with my critique (Mind you I'm not an English Major, but am a College grad).
You are taking literal snippets from the original article, rather than taking the data in it and rewording the important points in a more condensed form. When Summarizing an aticle you don't have to take every bit of information in it....but you do take the more important bits. And do that in your own words.
What can help is make a list of the major facts (but not entire sentances).
Working from that list tell it in your own words. This will make it easier if you AREN'T reading the full article when you do it.
When you do it, then re-read the original, then read what you wrote to make sure you are on target with the facts. And make any corrections if you must.
In an article of that size you should be able to do this in one fairly small paragraph, unless there is a specific word count you need to meet.
And remember what a summary is. It gives you the highlights of something far larger, and does it in relatively few words. So you can understand what the summarized item is about before you take the time to read it and get all of the details.
If anyone else reading this finds something I left out...please add to this.

Very nice, smoothy. I couldn't have said it better (and I was an English major).
