Few adults can remember anything that happened to them before the age of 3. Now, a new study has documented that it's about age 7 when our earliest memories begin to fade, a phenomenon known as “childhood amnesia.”
So, this thread will have a two-point discussion,
1. What was your earliest memory and what age was that to the best of your memory?
2. Since kids cannot remember much if anything before 3, does it make sense to keep them on secluded islands where they are well-kept and looked after by caregivers and can be "picked up" later in life without much difference?
Say mom or dad wanted to forge ahead in their careers, and couldnt have time or sometimes even afford to, care for a kid. Parent-child separation is obviously cruel, but in the circumstance of toddlers and infants, it doesn't seem to have any detriment, considering they wont even remember the absence.
What are your thoughts, thots?
