Description

Parents Who Kill It's unimaginable to think a parent, someone who is by nature supposed to protect their children, making the choice to kill them. Unfortunately, filicide (the deliberate act of killing your own child) is not as uncommon as many may think. The accounts of these horrific true crimes have been condensed inside to simply inform and to spark your curiosity. Why Do They Commit These Acts Of Filicide? There are many reasons why a parent might kill their own child, from mental illness to revenge. Sometimes, the parent might be suffering from a mental illness that hasn't been properly treated. In most cases, it's a single parent who has killed their child or been responsible for their death. Sometimes, however, both parents are involved in the act as you will discover. One parent choosing to kill their child or children is sad enough but what drives both parents to commit such a crime? That is where the explanation of a mental illness falls short because how do two people suffer from the same psychotic breakdown at the same time. Beyond Child Abuse In the following book, we'll look at some of the most disconcerting accounts of filicide (and one case of neonaticide) in children of a variety of ages committed by both parents. From the 22-month-old toddler who was severely abused and neglected (and ultimately killed) to the nearly ten year old boy who weighed less than twenty pounds, we'll take a look at the crimes, the parents' motivations, and the aftermath. Although these might not be the most famous cases, they are still highly troubling and disturbing. While we will probably never completely understand the reasons a couple would kill a child, by studying their behavior and making an attempt to comprehend the situation, it's possible we'll be able to learn the early warning signs. By doing this, perhaps in the future we'll see fewer cases of children brought to death by the hands of their own parents. 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 it.show more
