There are several cases of young offenders, but afaIk in Germany this case involves the youngest.
I do pity the parents of the killers, I wonder how you survive that?
Parents of murdered children can find some sort of acceptance and peace, it is a terrible and long road to it, but with good counseling and a lot of support, parents and families can survive this. And my heart bleeds for them.
But how do you cope with the fact that your child is a monster? How do you distance yourself? How do you cope with the fact, that you still love your child, but can't help him/her.
I cannot for the life of me imagine to abandon my child, nothing my children could ever do would stop me from loving them, so how on earth do these parents go on?
Right, that is a question me and my husband discussed. He is of the opinion that he would never abandon his child, Iam not so sure about it. Your child is a "monster", and the whole city where they live, friends ,neighbours are hating you.
But, what is coming up is by a lot of psycholigists being interviewed, is the fact that something went wrong in that family of the girl who stabbed this friend to death, so the parents have to think about that. You cannot tell me that a child who is being cared for in a loving and attentive family develops into such a monster.
I just cannot believe it.
If I imagine that my daughter or grandchild had been murdered in such a brutal and cruel way, honestly I could never ever forgive that girl who did this. These girls did not only kill a 12 year old, they also destroyed three families.
