Parents Who Kill Their Own Children

I was watching the news today and I heard about another child being murdered by his mother in a park. She smothered him while he was asleep on a jungle gym...revived him...and then smothered him again and buried him in the sand at the playground. It just broke my heart. I don't understand why so many parents are murdering their children. What is wrong with them? Are there that many "sick" people out there? Or are they just selfish and heartless? I was keeping up on the story of Caylee Anthony, who was suspected of being  murdered by her mother. And I just don't get it. I love my children and grandchildren with every ounce of my being, and I can't stand the thought of them being hurt in any way. I also can't stand the thought of any child being hurt or mistreated. It really bothers me, and then I get angry. Children are so pure and innocent. They are a gift from God. We are suppose to take care of them, protect them, and teach them. Not murder them.  It just makes me sick to know that there are other parents out there that will do the same thing in the future. I would hope that we could find a way to stop them, but I don't know how since some of these parents never even show a sign that theres anything wrong in their relationships with their children.

I agree. However they are not "sick". They want people to say that as a defense for them. If people could sign their children over to friends, family, neighbors, etc.. like the few state that allow you to drop a newborn at a firestation no questions then some of the children coulds be saved. I have taken in several people children into my home. But as soon as someone starts asking questions they feel forced to come and try to raise these children. However many of them end up in DCS care, abanded at 16, abused, or dead. I have only had 1 family to stay together after the mother came and picked up her children 3 months later. I had one mother to pick up her children, she traded the 16 for a house. the 11 of drugs and sold the 2 for money. I found out after it was in the newspaper. I cannot have children as I open my home to many families and children in need of help. Then people have to try and fix the problem or get too many others involved. It truely takes a village to raise a child. So I help. We must help them to help theirself so they can be a productive person in socitey.

i read about this case too. the mothers name was tiffany toribio who was 23 and her son she murdered in march of 2009 was 3 year old ty toribio.



another woman in the park found the kids body on march 15 under the swingset. she saw a little kids shoe sticking out of the sand and thought someone had lost a shoe, so she picked it up. she noticed it was heavy and she had a hard time picking it up, when she pulled the shoe up she noticed it was attached to a foot!



isn't that horrible :'(

No parent in their right mind does this. Unfortunately people don't want to get involved when they

see a child being abused. Or, no one wants to believe it. It's always someone else's problem in

their opinion. Children are helpless. We need to speak up. If you suspect it, report it. Better

to be mistaken than having

a child severly injured or dead. Usually parents have abused themselves and children and

when frustrations with kids escalate, that's the way they know. We have to intervene and break

this cycle. Some people should never be parents,either. If necessary, better to take child than

incur further abuse.

I understand about not being able to afford to go to the doctor, or have enough to eat sometimes. It is sad. But that is part of what makes a person strong...I know from my own experiences. But I do not, and never will understand how a parent can kill their own children. No matter how bad things are, they always get better, and there is no excuse in this world for taking an innocent child's life or any life for that matter. I am sorry that you are having such a difficult time right now and my heart goes out to you. But at least you have a family, and people that love and care for each other. That alone should make you happy. Some people don't have anyone but themselves.

Well i know from experience

its kind of hard to live happily

and carefree

when you cant afford to pay medical bills

so you have to avoid taking your family to the hospital

when you cant afford to feed everyone every single

day.

Im not saying its a reason to throw a fit.

My family has done a good job handling it

but still.

You can never be 100% happy

when you know your family is struggling to get by.

Why do you think people kill their children then themselves?

happens a lot more than you think.

Because they cant afford to live in a world like this, and they dont want their children having to live in the place this planet is turning out to be.

Im by far not saying its right,

but I can understand their logic

no matter how selfish it may be.

I have always believed that happiness comes from within. I don't think that "things" make people happy, it only makes them want more things. And I know a lot of people that are happy, that are also trying to make this world a better place. I know that there are a lot of unhappy people in the world, but I don't think that is making them go crazy and kill their children. I also don't understand why the parents that do kill their children choose to have them in the first place.

Because we're making the world a horrible place every day. It's because no one is happy, and no one can be happy in a world like this.

People are literally going crazy over it.

How can you not?

Every day we have everything shoved in our faces that we cant have, but what do you expect in a world

where you cant even manage to be happy for a single day?
