Most important age
Sometimes I try to think about my previous year to find what and who influenced on me. Also I think about the age when my character was formed. Answer on my last question is age from my birth to twelve-fourteen years.
At first, at this age my parents influenced on me with great power. They said me what I should do, where I should go and said me about my friends. Of course, I was not agree with them. But they had some authority in my eyes and I tried to hear their words. I think that such parent’s talking had defined my future relation to friend’s choice and my look on this world. Now I am twenty four but I remember my mothers words and every time think about what she should say about my decision.
The earliest age is more important for people with other side. At this period young boys and girls define their relation to own heath. Every kid likes to eat sweets and cakes. But some does it every time and anywhere. In my opinion, it is wrong position relatively own health because unlimited eating of sweets leads to superfluous weight and fat. In future it will disturb man’s health. But in my country (Ukraine) children think about their heath and try to make different physical exercises. Many kids play in sport games such as football, basketball or tennis.
Person’s relation to work and education is also important in our lives. But it forms in earliest age too. Parents at home and teachers at school have to say to show that every man has to work and to study hard to be successful. I think, child will do this if he sees that his authority do the same. In other case in future kid will avoid hard work. Sometimes it can lead to absence of own position and responsibility for decisions.
In conclusion I want to say that, really, the years from birth up to twelve are more important for person. At this period of time man’s character, relations to work and with people are formed.
