TOEFL Essay - Childhood years are important

Q. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? A person's childhood years (0-12) are the most important years in a person's life. Use specific reasons and examples to support your response.

Some of us are receptive to new ideas at every waking moment; others resist new ideas but still manage to learn. How? We often learn on our own, autodidacts ingesting information we can get down. Children acquire data and skills, and many consider the ages from birth to twelve as our entire education. I agree because new resources bombard us and we appear to want to be taught more then.

Our youngest years fulfill us in ways we fully appreciate years later. This is human. For example, I now know that traveling with an ex while they are an ex of yours is not a tremendous idea, especially if you shoulder their travel expenses. Very likely, you will not see this money again. I would have only been fooled once, or perhaps not fooled, if I had been burned as a child. I would not again place my hand where flames could lick it. If I had learned these lessons when I was a young child, I would have avoided Europe altogether to not suffer from it. Children are too weak to fight a full-scale bombardment, and in acquiescence let wrongs wash over them.

Adults assume children are taught more during our childhoods. When we start exhibiting teenage faces and attitudes, when we start looking scary as our bodies pull and stretch, it's during this breakaway that adults know that learning time is over. An oil-covered face is the milestone that means that we are no longer a sponge. Adults cannot change attitudes by grabbing onto these oils because they are worthless. You should only talk at worthless oils, and refuse to extract them. Rekindle peaceful interactions when both parties are ready. Hence, when our faces have readiness written all over them, we await input. Adults and the world are just more easy informing us. I'm sure this biologically correlates to our evolutionary paths.
