Do you believe that a child from a blended family is more likely to kill a family member than a child who is not?

A young boy killled his pregnant step mother and went to school like it was an ordinary day after he hid the gun. as read on verizon wireless news. and associated content. here is a link

  • At first glance everyone would jump to say that being a blended family has nothing to do with wether someone becomes a killer or not... HOWEVER if you take a second to rationally think things through you can determine that a blended family could possibly up the odds by causing disruption in the normal family life cycle. (Not that a blended family isn't "normal" but typically being married and having children and everything being fairytale like is what one would refer to as normal) lol. That being said, statistically I'd love to see evidence that pointed to one side of this theory. I do believe that certaint instances stemming from a blended family life can cause more anger, resentment, irrational behavior, and depressive disorders.

  • Why would it have anything to do with a blended family?

  • I don't think being in a blended family had anything to do with it. Pretty sad though.

  • I don't think it being a blended family would make it more likely to happen. Many years ago a young boy in my state killed his father with a shotgun. There was also the eleven year old boy a few months ago on the news that killed his father and father's friend. Oprah had a man on her show not too long back whose son killed his mother, brother, and attempted to kill his dad. Here are three examples of nonblended families to your one example so..... really who knows, people are just freaking crazy!
