    When kids kill their parents

    When kids kill their parents
    Sunday April 13, 2014

    Two recent cases have sparked widespread horror and revulsion, with many asking what has gone wrong with the institution of the family in Thailand.

    BANGKOK: In the last few weeks, Thailand has witnessed two murder cases in which young men have apparently slain their parents and siblings.

    On March 8, a couple in Pathum Thani and their son were shot dead in their home by the eldest son, aged 19.

    On April 3 in Bangkok, a husband and wife and their elder son were killed in their home by two gunmen who, the police say, were hired by the couple’s younger son, 22.

    Police say the accused in the first case had confessed to murdering his parents and younger brother in a fit of anger at being continuously scolded by his mother.

    He said she also broke a promise to buy him a car and, on the night of the murders, refused to let him use the family car to pick up his girlfriend because he was drinking.

    In the second case, police say, the slain couple’s younger son and his close friend arranged the contract killing of his family.

    Police say the son, who had left home to live with a close friend, felt slighted by and angry with his parents for frequently comparing him to his successful elder brother, a police officer.

    His parents also owned land worth over 100 million baht (RM9.9mil) and had bank deposits of more than 10 million baht (RM999,461), fuelling suspicion that a lust for inheritance was also a motive.

    The multiple murders have caused shock and dismay across the country.

    People are wondering what has gone wrong with the institution of the family.

    The possible motives of the perpetrators are being widely discussed on the social media.

    Expressions of disgust and horror have been coupled with disbelief as users ask who in their right mind would kill their own parents.

    Many are calling the crime unforgivable and demanding that the perpetrators be sentenced to death.

    Psychiatrists and experts on adolescent behaviour have attempted to shed light on the factors that lead young people to kill.

    Dr Panpimon Vipulakorn of the Mental Health Department has said the way some children are raised can drive them to use violence to try and solve problems.

    She said domineering parents who encourage competition among their children might cause rivalry that spills over into violence.

    Anchulee Thirawongpaisan of the Police Hospital said too much parental pressure and high expectations can spark aggression in their kids.

    Educator Sompong Jitradab of Chulalongkorn University pinpointed increasing materialism as a potential source of adolescent crime.

    Ticha Na Nakorn of the Kanchanaphisek Remand Home in Nakhon Pathom said lack of self-awareness and self-control were key factors behind murders committed by youngsters.

    American criminologist Kathleen Heide, who has studied patricide and matricide, believes most perpetrators had been abused or neglected and lacked any emotional attachment to their parents.

    Others, she says, were overindulged and had never established personal boundaries or respect for others. Either way, they had not learned ways to cope with anger and emotional distress and had resorted to murderous violence.

    Cases in which people kill their parents form part of the larger problem of domestic violence, which includes the murder of a spouse or partner, a sibling and even a child.

    Shocking though they are, such cases provide lessons we can use to lower the incidence of violence within the home.

    Parents should guide their children in how to deal with conflict in constructive rather than violent ways.

    Kids also need to be guarded from the toxic mental side effects of a diet of parental pressure and materialistic desires.

    The consequences of violence within the home are terrible for all involved.

    We can help reduce the frequency of such tragedies by becoming more aware of the deeper causes and tackling them before they explode into life-ending violence.

    world demands are too much for many kids (whats the feckin point).
    i'm gonna be in debt until i'm 50 yrs. old.

    it is a recent phenomenon that kids beat up the parents
    and the pharma's say ,, here take this,, it'll make you sane again.
    yes it's world wide now.
    if we feed them violence everyday, what do 'they' expect.

    should of began well before school age .

    It is the responsibility of the parents and not one that can be abdicated .

    Don't want the responsibility , don't have children .

    not sure the parents can control it
    and if they try too
    billy becomes a rebel.

    parents were brought up in the same fashion.

    unfortunately today, there are few winners and lots of losers.

    this kinda violence i believe only raised its ugly head within the last 30 yrs. or so.

    there is something more rotten going on in society today.

    like i said,, violence is part of the staple diet today,, it's everywhere.
    and visible from a young age.
    starting with cartoons and going on to, all out war. kill kill kill, kill some more.
    or commit suicide.
    or fill your veins with heroin
    or smoke dope all day long
    get out of it on alcohol
    whatever
    the world is all fucked up
    and we wanna blame the kids. tut tut.

    now they want kids in school at 2 yrs old ffs.

    there are bound to be casualties with parental control< thought control> and the desire for the materialistic.
    the anger, envy, the violence, all in a neat package.
    i blame the society.
    think most parents do their best with control and most kids just wanna have fun.
    a lot of parents foster shit onto their kids which they themselves couldn't do.
    the future always has the fear factor of what may happen and this is also fostered on kids.
    we weren't good enough or achieved much
    BUT you 'will be' different,, you will achieve what we couldn't.
    and of course this could go on for ever and ever down the generations.

    throw alcohol into the mix and it can all go very crazy.

    kids are rebelling all over the planet, yes ?
    they've had enough of all the bullshit.
    and there's more to come.
    yes society is rotten and fecked up.

    they may not all murder their parents
    but look what's going on today in society and how many are banged up in jails
    or whatever prison one fosters in their minds.
    society is rotten to the core.
    so there

    I'm afraid the parents conveyed the values of the free world. What were they supposed to do? Tell the sons 'don't be driven by greed, and selfishness, and don't stick at nothing to achieve your consumption goals? You kidding? Are they supposed to bring up some underachievers?
