Not Remembering Childhood
 
I basically don't remember anything from living in our first home since we came to Australia.

We moved when I was 12 to another suburb and I remember bits and pieces of that time, but not anything before.

Is this concerning?? I'm really worried.

Well I'm not sure whether it's anything to worry about or not - I guess it's fairly common to remember back to about 6 or so?

I have some vague memories from around that age - 5 or 6 I guess. I remember going to kindergarten and sitting on the rug listening to the teachers reading stories. I remember telling my little sister I was going to run away at about 6 or 7 too - she said she wanted to come too but I told her she couldn't. :roll

What always amazes me are these people that say they can remember so far back they were basically still in the womb.

Haha yes! Some people can remember their childhood so vividly. That amazes me as well.

Yeah - isn't it incredible?

I'm actually surprised I can remember anything from my childhood at all - because I'm having quite a bit of trouble even remembering what I did yesterday. :)

Hey :)

Do you have any photos from your childhood? They can help you remember :)

Much love <3

People that say they remember their childhood vividly are basically exaggerating. If I add up all my memories before the age of 12 it'll add up to perhaps 1 hour of memories (just a wild guess, it could be a lot less) which is as good as nothing. It are nothing more than flashes which may or may not have happened.

I remember my childhood probably better than I remember last year. But it's a distorted sort of memory. It's vivid but it's like I wasn't me. Like it happened to someone else and I got their memories.

Childhood memories are all memories of memories of remembering memories. The people who recall those years well are the people who spent a lot of time thinking about it in an unbroken chain. Photos and family members reinforcing the memories helps a lot too.
