is it better to say "since childhood" or "since my childhood" in the following example?

"I have known them since childhood/my childhood"

Thank you!

"Since childhood" is pretty much the standard convention here in the USA. But technically either one would work. Personally, I might also consider saying

"I have known them since I was little" or "I have known them since I was a child."
