Why I Want to Do Early Childhood Education
Early childhood education is one of the most interesting types of teaching for me, as it involves work with the youngest children.

This is due to the fact that people are seen to embrace religion as they age and get closer to death, thus seeking the scenario of an afterlife for comfort. Young people are introduced to religion by their parents, but many of them decide to abandon their faith later in life. Studies conducted on Protestants aged between 18 and 30 showed that seventy percent of them stopped going to church by the age of 23, despite having attended it regularly in high school (Wilson, 2009).

College is a very responsible and interesting stage of life for every person. It brings a whole bunch of changes, new emotions, liabilities and challenges.
