I can’t remember my childhood that much. Does that mean I experienced some kind of trauma?

Ive never been able to remember my childhood. My first memory is when I was 4 in preschool, the next one is 8, and from there up I can remember each year but I read that if you can’t remember your childhood it’s because you’re suppressing a traumatic memory. What’s the likelihood of that. I mean I was bullied a lot in school but I remember that and I don’t have a evil mother or anything and my dad died before I was ever born so I don’t know why I can remember so little.

    The parts of my life that I can't remember were forgotten mostly because they were not remarkable. Absolutely nothing bad or great happened. Don't let some psych major  talk you into "remembering" some trauma that didn't happen.
