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 KidsIn 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.Would You Like To Know More?

About Alexander Scott

Alexander Scott is fascinated with anything that stirs him up emotionally and sparks his curiosity. Whether that is true crime, amazing survival stories or people stepping up to be heroes, he loves it all. Paranormal encounters, stories of personal triumph and even miracle births are on his radar of interests. He likes to write shorter books that get to the meat of the events. Think anything that you can read on your lunch hour that takes you away from the day to day monotony of life. You won't find disturbing images inside of his books. Some of the stories are shocking enough without needing to physically see what the crime scenes looked like. Our imaginations are more than enough. He isn't going for the shock and awe effect. He doesn't claim to be an expert on serial killers or true crime and he isn't some retired detective. Just a regular guy that likes to read and write about events that make you realize your everyday life might not be as bad as you think. When you read stories about parents killing their kids it makes you go home and hug, not yell, at your kids. When you read stories about people who overcome adversity, the problems you have in life don't seem so big after all. You would think some of the stories you read are Hollywood productions but sadly or amazingly, depending on the situation, they are real stories about real people. People that consciously hurt others or put their own lives in danger to save others. That is the mystery that Alexander contemplates all the time. Why do some sacrifice their lives for others while some intentionally take others' lives? What is it about being human that drives either choice? Alexander will continue to research life changing events and create these books for your enjoyment. He hopes they captivate you and makes you realize that life is precious so enjoy more
