    this is psychological based researchs
    any detail happen in the childhood period its assisst in buliding a new stone in her/his character
    id - ego -superego
    to be a normal developed person , you have to complete the three stages completely

    Yes, some even turn out better than most because of bad expieriences. It's called "turning your life around" ;-)

    turn your life around

    What happens in ones childhood has a psychological impact in how people think or feel throughout their life. Consciously, yes, someone can overcome what happened, but under that, it'll always control how someone thinks or acts.

    If a person wants to overcome it, works hard at it. Yes it can be.

    I mean, maybe not in all cases, depending on what a child has been through. The hurt will remain, but it can be let out in such a way where it doesn't effect one's everyday life.

    But, it does take a huge amount of work, primarily because the things we experience in childhood have such a deep impact. Childhood is when we are most malleable and banging out all the dents later is a lot of work.

    But, it can be done.

    Sister, one of the things I'm most proud of is that, in all the years of teaching young children, I never said anything that would hurt them...inside where it counts. They may have been hurt when I had to say no to something but I never hurt them where they lived as people. (I also didn't hit...in an era when it was acceptable.)

    This was something I made up my mind about as a young teen and I even gave one of those required college speeches "to persuade" on the topic. I think that the pain of being emotionally hurt lasts far longer than physical pain and takes longer to overcome.

    And, I know about both.

    It can overcome with prayer and believing in oneself, but the scars will remain throughout one life time..

    I had a terrible childhood. I can't say that even at my age now it's completely turnaround, there are still just too many scars. But I'm doing as good as I can. I still work at it all the time. Painting is my ray of light, that has helped me through many years of pain.

    Personally, I think it depends on the person. There are lots of people who have experienced a bad childhood which to this day still dwell, hold grudges, and let effect them. And then there are some who accept the fact. move on and somehow apply it their life for the better. This comes from ones self practicality.

    Some people are so resilient that they can overcome anything. God gets them through it all.

    Sometimes a parent can be so bad at parenting that you want to be everything but like them. Sometimes their mistakes can be your stepping stone to success.
