Can You Recover Memories of Childhood Abuse

- The idea of whether a memory can be forgotten and then remembered, and the thought of suggesting a memory and then have it remembered are at the heart of the childhood abuse issue. Most clinical psychologists believe recovered memory is rare, although laboratory studies have shown that the memory is usually not accurate and can be influenced by outside factors. This issue has not been directly studied since researchers have not subjected people to traumatic events to test their memory of them. Therefore, it has not been determined if a traumatic event is encoded and stored differently in memory compared to a non-traumatic event....   [tags: Suppressed Memories, Child Abuse, psychology]

My Childhood Memories: Living in Silence

- Much of my childhood, despite being American-born, was heavily influenced by my Mexican culture by way of my immigrant mom and my predominantly Mexican neighborhood. Thus, the foundation of my upbringing included the same norms and values that one, particularly a young female, would experience in Mexico. As a young person, disrespecting an adult was a huge offense; so, my default was to be silent around older people.

My Childhood Memories of Hockey Night

- Ever since I can remember watching television my Saturday nights included Hockey Night in Canada. I can't remember the players or specific details about the games but I do remember watching hockey. It aired at 8 pm. I was so lucky to see the first ten minutes of the game because every other night of the week I had to be in bed much earlier. I was old enough to realize that this was a treat. From October until May I knew what I was doing on Saturday before bed. Maybe that's why I was so well-behaved in church on Sunday morning; I didn't want my hockey games taken away....   [tags: Personal Narrative 2014]

When I was three, that is what they told me, we were hosting a family get-together. It was on a Sunday and there was snow on the ground to the tops of my snow boots.

My Childhood Memories: Sexual Assault

My Memories Of My Childhood

- Looking back on my childhood, I would say I was blessed to have the people I had in my life. I grew up with ten siblings so things were never easy. From the oldest sibling to my youngest there is a twenty-four year age gap. To some it might come off as life being easier or less responsibility. Many might even think it was an easier way to get what we wanted because we could get it from each other. Than on the other hand, you have the people that looked at my family size and immediately wondered “How can they afford all of those kids?” Where do they live....   [tags: Sibling, Family, Adolescence, Child]

Childhood Memories of Grandmother and Corn Dogs

- One of the almost romantically intimate experiences that I shared with my grandmother as a child was the ecstasy of eating corn dogs. And it was with surprising frequency, at least during summer months, that I joined in her unmitigated, uncomplicated zeal for her favorite food. Forget the old saw about permissive grandmothers filling their grandchildren with tasty fried treats. My grandmother wanted the corndogs for herself, and it was the privilege of her favor that I was allowed to go along with her down to the park on the Fourth of July or to one of the many bankrupted family farms where an auction had drawn a little crowd, and, always, Corn Dog Jerry and his makeshift plywood stand....   [tags: Personal Narrative Writing]

Childhood Memories in Adrienne Rich's poem, Miracle Ice Cream

The author follows to allude to deeper meaning with a stronger final stanza. Rich's beautiful use of language and brilliant placement of meter adds to the power behind this poem intended to elicit a response from the reader which would help relieve stress from everyday life.
