翻译下面的英语。

Zengzi’s wife was going to the market. Her little son insisted on going with her, making a tearful scene. “Stay at home,” she said to the boy. “When I come back, I will slaughter a pig for you.” When she came back, Zengzi got ready to slaughter the pig. His wife stopped him, saying: “I was just kidding.” “A child is not to be kidded like that!” he replied. “A child does not know much and cannot judge for himself. He learns from his parents and listens to what they day. To lie to him is to teach him to lie to others. If a mother lies to her son, he will not trust her anymore. How is she then to educate him?” With that Zengzi went to slaughter the pig and prepare a good meal for their son.

曾子的妻子到集市上去, 他的儿子哭着要跟去. 他的母亲说: “你回家呆着,待会儿我回来杀猪给你吃.” 她刚从集市上回来, 曾子就要捉猪去杀. 妻子劝止他说: “只不过是跟孩子开玩笑罢了.” 曾子说: “不能跟孩子开玩笑啊! 小孩子没有思考和判断能力, 要想父母亲学习, 听从父母的教导. 现在你欺骗他,这是教孩子骗人啊! 母亲欺骗儿子, 儿子就不再相信自己的母亲了, 这不是实现教育的方法.” 于是曾子就杀猪煮肉给孩子吃.

曾子之妻之市,其子随之而泣。其母曰:"女还,顾反,为女杀彘。妻适市反,曾子欲捕彘杀之,妻止之曰:"特与婴儿戏耳。" 曾子曰:"婴儿非与戏耳。婴儿非有知也,待父母而学者也,听父母之教。今子欺之,是教子欺也。母欺子,子而不信其母,非所以成教也。" 遂烹彘也。

 

曾子的夫人到集市上去,她的儿子哭着闹着要跟着去。他的母亲对他说:“你回家,等我回来杀猪给你吃。”她刚从集市上回来,曾子就马上要捉猪杀猪。他的妻子阻止他说:“不过是和孩子开玩笑罢了。”曾子说:“(妻子),小孩是不能和他开玩笑啊!小孩子没有思考和判断能力,等着父母去教他,听从父母亲的教导。今天你欺骗孩子,就是在教他欺骗别人。母亲欺骗了孩子,孩子就不会相信他的母亲,这不是用来教育孩子成为正人君子的方法。” 于是(曾子)就杀猪煮肉(给孩子吃)。
