For me the my inner child's age varies depending on the situation and what I'm feeling at the moment, from very young (6 or younger) to early- or mid-teens. Each age has different needs to be met and different ways to get them.

For the younger ages, I curl up and read a book or watch a Disney film. For the older ages, I'll find something to do that I enjoyed when I was that age.

Hey Frank,

Just in case I misrepresented myself somehow, I AM this current adult generation at 45 I guess and my getting out of the house was like ages 8-13.

You asked about the Stockholm Syndrom... I've been living it from 1978 to 2009. Didn't know THAT was part of my problem till just recently though.

Thanks,

sono

Never thought of that sono, the SS. Hmmmm naube I'll research it to see how it fits in.

Wow lots of stuff out there this seems directly related to this site and subject. Note the Child Abuse Accomodaton Syndrome
http://www.secasa.com.au/index.php/workers/21/54#top

This site talks about SS and how it relates/causes DID
EDIT ok I didn't see this site was a little nutty about mind control but the SS/DID info seems like good reasonable info. The page didn't open with the header showing or I didn't read it until I read it all. Let me know via PM if it isn't please.

EDIT
OK so its (NAFF) really out there but there are some great nuggets of good stuff in those pages like this on PTSD; Itís now commonly referred to as PTSS, or post-traumatic stress syndrome, as the term ďdisorderĒ is a misnomer in the sense that it implies that thereís something inherently wrong with the survivor. In fact, itís a sane, adaptive response to an overwhelmingly crazy event. The same can be said for DID, but sadly, as of yet, isnít.

Dwayne,

i never experienced a child hood frown , so i dont know what to do. I just take suggestions from my T and from csa friends and AA friends.

i was groomed and abused from the age of 4-14, and i truly thought that that is what everyone had happen to them.

i have a polar bear that my g-daughter let me adopt from her, becuz someone told me about their significance, i went to the new chipmunk movie with my g-son and thoroughly enjoyed it.

i kno there are other things i do from time to time. this was a good topic.

peace

paul
