    Parents who kill their children..

    in Motivation

    A USA TODAY examination of more than three decades of FBI homicide data shows that on average, 450 children are killed every year by their parents. Northeastern University criminologists applied statistical models to the records. USA TODAY analyzed the database for a detailed look at who kills, who is killed and how. Several patterns are apparent:


    The vast majority of child victims – three out of four – are under 5. More than a third of all victims are under a year old.
    Nearly half of all victims died from physical beatings or other injuries at a parent's hands.
    Fathers are more likely to kill. Men killed six out 10 children, most often beating or shooting them. Fathers were at fault in 75% of cases when children were shot to death by a parent and in 64% of cases when a child was beaten. "Violence is a masculine pursuit," says Jack Levin, a Northeastern University criminologist.
    When mothers kill, they are far more likely to kill victims under the age of 1 than children of any other age. Nearly 40% of all children killed by their mothers were less than a year old.
    When a parent is accused of killing a child, it dominates headlines and social media.


    "People are fascinated by this," says Sara West, a forensic psychiatrist at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. "It's an unfathomable concept."

    Losing Your Parents Episode 12: Holidays + Communicating with Deceased Parents

    in Self Help

    About this episode: Today we’re talking about ways you can communicate with your deceased parents during the holidays.


    About this show:
    I have lost both of my parents to cancer in my 20’s. When I was 22, I woke up next to my dad who had died and when I was 27 I watched my mom take her last breath.


    After being present for their illness and witnessing their deaths, I had to face life as a young person without them. I decided that it was important to me to connect with other people who have also lost their parents. I’m in my 30’s now.  I write and talk about my journey through healing my grief and working through life challenges that come up using creativity and self expression.


    My blog is LosingYourParents.org and my goal is to bridge the gap between grief and joy at every opportunity.

    Parents Perspective .....

    in Parents

    What is reclassifying?  Why would we as parents hold our child back a grade for the sake of sports?  We all know the value of a athletic scholarship, but does it require us to put our child through repeating a grade?  Basketball and Football are the two major revenue sports and this philosophy has plagued many communities in urban America.
