A shattering, eye-opening account of children who kill their parents: who they are, why they kill, and how we can better understand child abuse and family violence. Mones, the only U.S. lawyer who specializes in defending children who kill their parents, takes a hard look at our justice system and examines the "safety net" supposed to stop crimes of abuse.

Review: When a Child Kills

User Review  - Thomas Pluck - Goodreads

This book is twenty years old and out of print. Written by lawyer Paul Mones, who specialized in defending abused children who murdered their parents, it depicts the hopelessness and inescapable stress that drives these acts. A worthwhile read if you are interested in the subject. Read full review

Review: When a Child Kills

User Review  - Robyn Weaver - Goodreads

This was incredibly difficult to get through--not because it was bad; because it is horribly sad. However, I feel much more informed on signs of any form of child abuse. A good read if you're willing to read detailed accounts of verbal, physical, emotional and sexual child abuse. Read full review
