That is usually when children starts to adapt to the family environment and they start to form with the help of parents or guardians the basics for
behavior they also learn what is considered right or wrong.
Many children's window stay open until later in life but they learn to keep it to themselves due to observation by adults around them and their
reactions to what they say.
I was told to keep it to myself and pray to go away, also I grew up in a religious environment in which I was confuse and for a time the whole thing
because tabu and bad because it was against my religious upbringing.
While my father would not have any of it, my mother try to help any way she could.
Is many factors that influence our behavior until as adult we pick and drop from lessons to make our own version of what is OK and not.
Val makes a great point about spirituality and the ability to recollect or bring back the ability that we lose as children.
Many will never see anything or remember anything because that is mean to be.
So is nothing wrong with been skeptical or not be able to see or remember anything from childhood.
I will tell you the problems my son had with that window, he used to described as a hole opening under his bed in the ceiling and on the walls.
He would scream because he said that it was trying to take him away.
Until he was about 11 he will run scared from his room because he could see people around his bed at night.
While my daughter was different she would see floating lights all over her room and she would not stand having dolls because she said that they will
try to talk to her.
My son as an adult understand what is going on but he doesn't want anything of it, so he learned to block and forget.
My daughter says that she has not time to deal with that right now so she also has made a mental block of it.
People deal with certain things in a way that is comfortable for them, while others just spend their lifes trying to understand what it is all about
and how it conflict with their religious believes learned by the environment and family also.
Others never understand and become mental unstable.
In my case I deal with it, my memories are fine, just getting fuzzy now as I get older.
I only talk about it when I feel is ok to do so like in this thread and a few others.
