Parenting or child rearing is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood.
Jane Wanjiru shocked the world by narrating how she killed her three children by throwing them in a well after she had an altercation with her father
Filicide is the deliberate act of a parent killing their own child.
These were unfortunate turn of events with scars which cannot be forgotten but it seems Jane wants to start new life.
Jane claims she had separated with her husband and she had been living with her parents but things got worse after her father married a second wife and she decided to rent a house elsewhere.
One day she went for her daily errands and on returning back home, her mother had already taken her kids and she started living with them but according to her that did not make her happy since she never wanted to bother her mum
She claims her father had offered her a land where she would build a house instead of renting but one day when she went to tell her father that she was ready to build a house, she was chased away by her father and he also denied being her biological father.
After an altercation with the father, she went direct to her mother’s house and took her three kids and asked them to jump in a well and she left them to die.
She was arrested and jailed for 17 years before she was released and she claims it’s a miracle since she was to spend all her life in the cell.
She also claims her only wish is that God will bless her with a man to marry her and get more children since she regrets killing her own children.
Research shows 37% of the perpetrators had a recorded mental illness at the time. The most common diagnoses were mood disorders and personality disorders rather than psychosis, but the latter accounted for 15% of cases.
