I can say about myself that I remember only a few events from my childhood, starting from the age of three or four, but some of them, according to my parents' stories, rather than from memory. That is, I was told this once, but it seems to me that I remember it myself.
If nothing special happened and childhood was very boring, then what is there to remember? Although this is my personal opinion, but in my opinion a person remembers better out of the ordinary non-everyday events.
Probably life went on monotonously from day to day And all communication with adults is remembered brighter. I well remember how at the age of 2 a front-line soldier was riding a horse, I sat on his arm. we drove along the bank of the middle of the river The horse fell into a deep hole to the very neck and swam ... Then I noticed that the front-line soldier had no hands and had to grab his neck to save himself. I remember how my parents read children's books.
Because they had it gray, monotonous, or scary, and the brain blocks memories.
And another thing - you need to know when exactly people do not remember their childhood? in old age everyone seems to remember him well, but not in youth.
I am much more interested in what was in the pre-childhood, what was BEFORE birth. And it was ... definitely
It is difficult to write about the fact that someone remembers or does not remember their childhood. Personally, I remember my childhood well, right from the moment of birth, and sometimes it seems to me that I remember myself even before birth, but somehow vaguely. My recollection draws me a woman who loved me very much and I responded to her love. I remember and even feel her gentle hands when she took them into her own hands. Each person has his own memory and his own memories !!! Regards.
Children ... unlike adults ... live in a world of concrete images, not abstract words.
And imaginative thinking is carried out by involuntary attention.
Lifestyles are actively recorded in the baby's memory. But they do not yet have a connection with words and are not fixed arbitrarily.
They deliberately simply cannot be found, not activated ... (it seems, you can use hypnosis).
But they work like the subconscious.
It is in childhood, involuntarily, that we acquire the bulk of knowledge about the world around us.
An adult does not need to lick an iron or bite a cat the tail ... it knows their taste from subconscious memory.
The subconscious is a hell of a lot of images, involuntarily fixed in long-term memory. People who know how to consciously work with the subconscious at least a little are talents.
The desire to teach a child to speak, read, write as early as possible ... leads to the fact that the associative cortex is not sufficiently filled with information, does not develop associative thinking.
Voluntary attention kills involuntary - a source of overwhelming information about life. These children have already killed potential talents.
The images are, of course, subjective ... but the child still does not have enough information to mix the new image with the old, making it really subjective.
He has a new, clear vision of the world. First glance.
(If adults do not intervene and explain how to see life correctly).
Humanity has not yet died out, because no matter how morons they raise people, they live in their subconscious practically objective images of reality, not distorted by thinking and learned stereotypes,
I also asked myself such a question, when faced with a situation that sometimes people cannot tell a child about themselves. I did not understand, well, how so. I remember myself very well from the age of 4, before this age there are 3 memories, but they are more looks like event images. I will turn 55 this year, I can tell almost everything about my childhood, and this is not only festive morning performances, these are many, many days. I can talk about myself passing from year to year, of course this does not mean what can I answer, what I did on a particular day ... I learned to read on my own at the age of 6, but many are now starting to read much earlier. I read voraciously everything in a row, was recorded in 3-4 libraries at the same time. I cannot say that I have an excellent memory, it is really connected more with images and emotions, as if the brain itself decides what is more important to it. When I need to concentrate, decide and make a decision, even in relation to a work situation, I do not even notice how they close eyes, I think in at the same time I see the issues being solved just in pictures, as if the brain is scrolling slides in my head, I can't even explain why this is happening. But I don't remember people very well. There was always a lot of turnover at work, the team changed very quickly and I a certain position, having all the data of these people in her hands, remembered them only as long as they worked, as soon as people quit, and I worked in one place for 29 years, of which 19 years in one position, then the brain seemed to clean out information about Sometimes it was just uncomfortable, they remembered me well ... I visually remembered the person perfectly, but I did not usually remember his name. These are the features of memory. I will not say that there was some kind of awesome childhood, ordinary childhood born in 60 -x: parents at work, checking diaries and lessons in the evening, you are at school or in the yard with friends, who are as independent as you are. Together in circles, in sports clubs, at school events. Everything, like everyone else. And many parents m the most important thing was that the child was dressed, shod, fed and did not skip school. So why does someone remember this, and someone does not remember himself even in high school?
I generally have a bad memory, I always had it, I was tormented with a foreign language at the institute, I could not remember words, not only I do not remember my childhood, but in general, that last year was bad, I don’t remember people at all, of course some bright events emerge , but no more, but if I strain myself I can raise memories, but in general I usually imagine that I paint over, which is unpleasant or just not significant, I myself get rid of this garbage in my head, but what I need, I never forget and I don’t forget anything, I never I'm late and I've never been robbed or deceived, here I understand clearly.
Childhood is poorly remembered, not filled with events. Every day the same thing: the child woke up, breakfast, played, lunch, slept, afternoon tea, played, dinner, played and slept. There should be vivid impressions, memorable events to be remembered. This applies not only to children, but also to adults. Life flew by like an instant, and there is nothing to remember? You didn't live, you just existed.
B o Most people remember their childhood well. But there are those who remember almost nothing about him. Cause? Usually there are two options.
First: childhood is such that the brain unconsciously blocks memories. It doesn't have to be childhood with alcoholic parents, violence, hunger and crime. Sometimes everything is all right, but either there is no warmth at all in the family and a lot of hidden lies, or everything was fine in the family, but there were some serious problems in the kindergarten, school, etc., and the child did not seek help from parents or accessed but did not receive it.
Second: memory features. It is different for everyone in terms of capacity. Moreover, in order to translate childhood memories into words, it is necessary for the child to form a verbal-logical memory in time (normally - by 6-7 years). It's like retelling a film about nature: you need to translate visual images and feelings from them into speech. Now, due to the huge amount of visual content, the situation is such that in some people the verbal-logical memory is not formed even by the age of 20. In this situation, a person simply cannot retrieve memories.
