Episode 6: Do I really have an inner child‪?‬ The Best of You

    • Mental Health

What is this “inner child” we see everywhere on social media and in pop psychology trends? Do I really have one? Is this just woo-woo psychology or is there science behind it? Why does it matter? We’ll get into all of this today, including the power of memory in shaping who you are.  



Here’s what we’ll discuss:  

1. What is an inner child and do I really have one? 

2. Is there any science behind it? 

3. What is an internal family? 

4. Who is the wise parent inside of you? 

5. What does the Bible have to say about our inner child? 

6. A 10 minute guided reflection to help you connect to a young part of yourself.  



Key Takeaway: Like a wise parent, we can learn to parent the young parts of us. We can bring them to Jesus who invited the children always to come to him—without shame or judgment.
