Kids Who Kill

Is childhood really innocent anymore? It feels like every time we turn on the news these days we're hearing a new story about a child being murdered, not by a scary stranger, but by another child.

From school shootings to abductions and family killings, kids killing kids is a very real phenomenon. It's not a new one, however; there's evidence of it going back hundreds of years-and maybe longer

What Drives A Child To Commit Murder?

Most children find childhood to be a magical place, full of love and possibilities. For others, though, it's a frightening place. Children who grow up with abuse, neglect, and mental illness problems that are either ignored or poorly treated, occasionally suffer from breaks that make them act out violence.

Of course, there are also those kids who don't seem to suffer from a conscience at all. These kids just kill for the fun of it.

Kids who kill other kids come in a variety of types with different motivations. Sometimes, the killings are accidental. However, a lot of the children have motives and the killings are planned out in advance. Those who kill their own family members, for example, often feel a certain type of pressure within their familial settings. Whether that pressure is real or imagined is debatable. They might also be motivated by abuse or neglect.

The True Crimes Of Kids

In the following book we'll look at some of the most famous cases, like that of Joshua Phillips who killed his neighbor then hid her under his bed for a week, and some that might not be as well-known. By learning to understand their motivations and actions, perhaps one day the warning signs will be clearer.

More studies and research are taking place as these killings become more common. School shootings were never something kids worried about and now are a part of their everyday reality. As new research unfolds hopefully someday teachers, counselors and parents alike will have the ability to spot the danger signs long before kids take action on their horrible thoughts.
