Many researchers have underestimated children’s ability to distinguish between fantasy and reality due to “methodological problems and overgeneralization” of children’s performance in conditions where they have little control. Therefore, the main goal of this article was to explain that children have the ability to differentiate between fantastical and real entities.
The current research indicates that most of the early memories are of distressing experiences. It is predicted that under certain conditions, children are able to recall painful and potentially harrowing medical experiences, such as shots (Goodman, Rudy, Bottoms, & Aman, 1990). The aim of this study was to highlight the offset of childhood amnesia (the earliest age of recall) correlated to four different cues (hospitalization, family move, death of a family member and birth of a younger sibling). The research question seems to be very interesting and stimulating because of the connection between the targeted events and participants years of age. Previous researches suggested that infants cannot remember events which took place earlier in their life because of the underdeveloped hippocampus (Nadel and Zola-Morgan, 1984).

According to a study by Nelson and Ross in 1980, the following hypothesis was formed: Children would show early childhood amnesia and that this could be tested by comparing obtained e... ... middle of paper ... ...hildren remember very few things that they want to, or the things that have not been repeated throughout their lives. Birth is an event in the life of a child that is very traumatic because of the type of “culture shock” that they experience. When pulled from their mother’s womb, a child enters a cold world, where they are forced to breathe differently and are no longer secluded from the rest of the world around them and their mother. It is a memory that is repressed unintentionally, but is still there, as Freud would tell one, without hesitation. The unconscious controls the instincts of people and reactions to the world around them, and is as much a part of life as the conscious mind or the preconscious mind, but serves the roll of a storage space or closet, in which humans hide their deepest thoughts and most unpleasant thoughts, as well.
