The Child Inside is a reflection of experiences, stories and vignettes that the author has collected as a Social Worker in the Juvenile Justice system in New York City, spanning a number of years in two juvenile detention facilities. One of the main themes of the book, which may come as a surprise, is the author's belief that the longer a youth stays in detention, the better it is for him. The ages of residents in detention ranges from ten years old to fifteen, and residents often turn sixteen and seventeen while waiting for a disposition on their cases. Very often former residents who are seventeen and even eighteen return to detention on old cases, which offers a wide range of experiences and stories to be shared. In addition, former residents often return to visit to let staff know they are doing well. Each resident comes into juvenile detention with a story, a unique personality, needs, experiences and hopes, offering a wide span of stories to be shared in The Child Inside.

Sharon Shaw is a respected psychotherapist specialising in cases of childhood sexual, emotional and mental abuse. Few of Shaw's clients would know that her brilliance as a therapist comes from profound personal experience. Her early life has inspired and informed her therapeutic techniques, now shared in this remarkable book, A Child Inside: understanding, healing and freedom following childhood abuse and trauma. Now an adult woman with the language and training to explain and analyse her experiences of abuse, Shaw revisits herself as that damaged child, with the support of her personal counsellor, her mother and other important safe connections. She reveals a frightened child, lost in a world that was not safe for her, trapped in a body and with a developing brain that wasn't yet mature enough to understand and articulate the horrors she was experiencing, thinking and feeling, all of which conflicted with what she had been taught by family and society at large: she knew they were meant to protect her but why had they failed to do so? A Child Inside explores the complex issues of trust and responsibility between adults and children, charting the progression from acute distress through cognitive and intuitive understanding and ultimately towards forgiveness.

Finding the Child Inside

But what you can do is stop allowing it to rule you and prevent you from fulfilling your dreams. You are where you are at this moment because this is exactly where you belong!

Finding the Child Inside

Are you being old ... or living young? Do you remember being young and having a totally free spirit? You didn’t have a care in the world, only time to imagine, play, and create. Does it seem that part is gone forever; lost and unable to be retrieved? As if it died or you never had it at all? What if there was a way for you to find the child you once were? Wouldn’t that discovery bring fresh excitement and a tremendous shift in how you operate in your life today? The good news is that it is completely possible to rediscover that lost child; to experience the joyful, free spirit we all long for once again. But first we must travel back in time. How It All Began Our childhood shaped who we believe ourselves to be and how we see the world; it was the foundation, the filter through which we learned to view life and thus make the decisions that create the life we lead today. I know it is hard to imagine, but if you truly stop to think about it for a moment, you will see that everything that happens to you is the result of choices you make either consciously or subconsciously. Even if something happens to you outside your own decision process, your response to that occurrence is always your own decision and determines how you experience that aspect of your life. As you look closely, you will start to see a pattern about how you make decisions; as if you have been pre-programmed to react in certain predictable ways. Get What You Want When you were young and wanted something very badly you were probably often told, "No." But the strong desire to have that something caused you to attempt to sell your parents on the idea whether you begged, negotiated, or cried. The list of techniques you used could go on and on. The point is… You had a way of getting what you wanted! My guess is now that you are older, it is harder to conceive of having what you truly want because you have belief systems in place that cause you to think that is no longer possible. I’ve found that those who do attain their heart’s desire have learned how to reach within and recapture that child part they once knew how to use so well. Actually, we all have that ability; we just need to unload the limiting belief systems that have left us burdened and defeated. The Way Out We live in a world that places demands on our lives that can sometimes seem unbearable. And yet, at the same time we live in a world where fresh, new ideas are created each and every day. I have a radical suggestion: Let’s create our own world! We have that ability already within us. God gave us: - The ability to be whoever we want to be - The ability to achieve whatever we desire - The ability to become greater than we think we are Have you ever sat and watched children and how they act? They don’t worry about hurting themselves; they just play with abandonment. They don’t worry about what anyone thinks about them. They simply enjoy the moment. Whatever the reason, they have a sense of freedom that most of us can’t even fathom. They are free to create and live in their own world! Find New Freedom You too can find that sense of freedom once more. But first you will need to spend the time to discover what you truly want and focus on those desires each and every day. By focusing your attention in this way you begin to instill those desires into your conscious and sub-conscious mind, heart, and spirit. Gradually these desires will become so imbedded into your underlying operating system that you will respond naturally from these new desires without even thinking about it. Don’t get me wrong, your past played a major role in making you who you are and that can’t be taken lightly. But what you can do is stop allowing it to rule you and prevent you from fulfilling your dreams. You are where you are at this moment because this is exactly where you belong! Many people have turned their lives into a hopeless existence; hoping "to get lucky" or just waiting to die and be out of their misery. I believe the problem is: - We fail to focus on the choices we have in the present moment and instead live with old worn-out decisions that are never held up for review. - We fail to notice new opportunities right in front of us every moment of every day and instead lead a robotic existence, doing the same things over and over. - We fail to live in the present moment and instead focus on the regrets of the past or the anxieties of the future. The past is past and the future is not here. You cannot relive the past except in memories and you can’t live the future because it hasn’t arrived. In fact, have you noticed that when the so-called future arrives, you always experience it as the present moment? The only thing you can really do is be present in this moment as that is all that exists! Children definitely live in the moment. They get so caught up in playing, dreaming, and loving they don’t worry about the mortgage or the electric bill; they simply respond to what makes them happy and do it at that moment. Why don’t we adults live this way? What stops us? I’m convinced we stop ourselves. We make knee-jerk choices that keep us frantically busy, regretful of yesterday and worried about tomorrow; chocked off from everything that would bring us freedom, joy, and fulfillment. Whatever has become of the child within and the present moment?

Mental Illness is real and goes undetected every day simply because we focus on the outside, not knowing the demons one may be wrestling with on the inside. It is my belief that the secrets I was carrying caused my mental illness. I also believe that the secrets other family members were carrying caused theirs as well, even landed a few of them in a mental institution. At one point in my life, I use to suffer from bipolar disorder, manic depression, and paranoid schizophrenic. Which caused me to be emotional detached from my children for fear that something terrible would happen. I was selfish and deliberately set out to harm people, but in the end it cost me and it's a price that I am still paying today. However, God had a master plan and He used what I thought at the time was an unjust; the death of my grandmother to killed me in order to heal me. Now I am a living testimony of His goodness and grace. So much good has come from her death, relationships that I would have never experience merely because I would have never learned how to forgive and that was the key to a life of abundance. -For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worth to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us- (Romans 8:18)

Diana Serra Cary's well-wrought, empathetic narrative presents the underside of the glittering stage and screen world: frightened children, merchants who buy and sell childhood as a commodity, rapacious stage mothers and fathers whose ambition and avarice make them willing to sacrifice their children to fulfill their own dreams. The first part of the book mines a lode of new information, recounting stories of the precursors to Hollywood's child stars (and their ambitious parents) - the spectacular 1853 stage debut of four-year-old Cordelia Howard, the rise of red-haired Lotta Crabtree in California's Gold Rush camps, and the travails and triumphs of the hoydenish Elsie Janis as she ad-libbed her way to stardom. Cary - as "Baby Peggy", Hollywood's pioneer child star, the youngest in theatrical history - has lived her subject, surviving a childhood filled with an enormous workload, some real physical danger, and emotional trauma. She weaves her own story of being her family's chief breadwinner with similar tales involving famous movie children she knew and worked with - Jackie Coogan, Shirley Temple, Mickey Rooney, and Judy Garland, among many others.
