Causes, Solutions To Child Violence Presented In Xlibris Title

In light of the recent school shootings in California and Illinois, the self-published book The Evil that Kids Do provides insights and answers to the motivating factors that drive children to violence.

Columbine and Virginia Tech are names of the most infamous cases of school violence to happen in the US in the last 10 years. The occurrence of these and other incidences of school shootings have left administrators and parents concerned about school safety.

With the recent shooting of a 15-year-old boy in E.O. Green Junior High School in California by another eighth-grader, and the killing of five students by an unidentified gunman in a Northern Illinois University lecture hall, echoes of the Virginia Tech massacre and the Columbine killings resurface and, again, raises the issue of safety ? and guns ? in schools.

While some of the school shootings are perpetrated by adults, many are carried out by teenage students who attend the respective schools where the violence takes place. This poses the question of the moral and psychological conditions of today?s youth and other external factors that would lead them to commit acts of violence.

Psychologist and author Michael Sefton addresses these issues and more in his Xlibris published book, ?The Evil that Kids Do.? Taking a clinician?s view of deviant child behavior, Sefton digs deep and exposes the underpinnings of childhood violence. He points out at the beginning of his book that today?s children experience more stress and live more complex lives than their ?baby boomer? parents did, and may be one of the reasons that fuel aggression in kids.

Sefton also points out specific issues (such as divorce and abuse) and practical ones (like having mentors and parent-school partnerships) in order to present a well-rounded analysis of violent behavior in children.

The Evil that Kids Do breaks down the different stages of child development, identifies key factors that shape a child?s perceptions and belief systems, and provides specific recommendations for change. This self-published book should be on the desk of every teacher, school administrator, principal, guidance counselor and parent, if they are to be equipped to handle ? and curb ? child aggression.

Michael Sefton?s The Evil that Kids Do is available on the Xlibris and Amazon online bookstores.
