I think I’d have to agree that a person`s childhood is the most important. These are the years when we form as a personality. During these years we learn about relationships, get education, and develop our moral sense of right and wrong. No doubt, the early years are the time when we learn about relationships, first with our family, then with the rest of the world. We learn how to respond others, if we`re loved, then we learn how to love.
These are the years when we begin our formal education. In school we learn the basic skills of reading, writing, and working with numbers. These are skills that we use throughout our lives. We also learn to analyze and use information. This is perhaps the most important thing we learn during these years.
Presumably, these are skills that will always be useful. Most important, from my point of view, we develop our moral sense of right and wrong during these years. At first others teach us about good and bad. As we grow, we also begin to decide for ourselves. During this time we also begin to develop self-discipline to live according to our morals. I believe a person grows and changes throughout the many stages of life. However, the base is set in those first few years of life.
