Agreed, there has to be some kind of enforcement - verification, cross referencing of where that bits and pieces of memories comes from. Generally, older siblings, cousins, parents, grandparents other family members and friends can verify the time frame, events, sounds, places and people..
For example, if a child receives a white puppy with a big red bow at first birthday....
and learns to play and say bow wow with the puppy and get used to playing with the puppy.... and after six months, the puppy is taken away.. and if that child never again has a puppy or a dog for a pet after that.. the child may always have a sense of familiarity about a white puppy, a red bow and even the sound bow wow and even smell ( yeah gross but true) associated with it..
But family members may have to reinforce such memories with actual facts to provide clarity!
