I seen this video posted by a friend on facebook, and I then had to repost it. It is one that really got me thinking and yet verified what I said many times before. One thing that gets under my skin is when someone tells me on James "He was too young he won't remember" or "He is a normal child and all boy what he is doing is nothing to do with his past". While I would love to have what some calls a normal child, and I am SO very grateful that he isn't like some I can't help but say some has no idea what they are talking about.
This little girl was in the abuse till she was nineteen months old till she was adopted by loving parents. James was six months before his final abuse ended, however she still abuses him emotionally and mentally by violating the order of protection. I can't stress how important it is to watch this video. It is a long one and I do recommend headphones if small children are around but please do watch and please don't answer this question without watching it.
Do young children remember being abused?
For me I believe they may not remember details but they know something happened. They know who did it to them. I know what I remember as a child and my past. James even will tell you "Laura hurt me". I don't ask him details, nor do I tell him anything till he asks. I am honest, and appropriate to his age. No one can convince me he doesn't know he was abused anymore then no one can convince me on this little girl. Wonder why these kids act as they do? Wonder why some kill? Wonder why they abuse? Its all right here folks how would you act if you wasn't taught to even love? If you was only taught to abuse?
