First of all, child soldiers are treated very poorly - like machines - to perform one task: kill. So, the captors do whatever they can to train the children to kill. Ishmael Beah, once a child soldier, was rescued by the UNICEF after being a child soldier for 2 years. As a child soldier, he saw crying children shot before his eyes, and he was brainwashed and drugged into oblivion. His captors desensitized him so much that he said, “Shooting became just like a drinking a glass of water.” So, when a child like Ishmael, who was brainwashed to believe that killing is required for survival, and that is good, had a gun pointed at his head and was told to kill, it would be like choosing between drinking water and getting shot; who wouldn’t choose the obvious?
As a child Chikatilo was unable to control his bladder due to his illness of hydrocephalus [water on the brain] which made him a frequent bedwetter into his late adolescents (The Butcher of Rostov par 5). Sharing a bed and room with his family, his mother used to beat him as a punishment for soiling one of the only things they had (Andrei Chikatilo Criminal Minds Wiki par 1). Chikatilo was also presumed to be present when his mother was raped by a German solider during WWII which later resulted in his sister’s birth (Andrei Chikatilo, Absolute Crime par 2). The house his family shared only contained one room and his father’s war schedule did not match up to the birth of his younger sister (Andrei Chikatilo, History and Childhood par 3). Being exposed to sexual violence at a young age could have possibly traumatized Chikatilo for life, always linking the two
Antisocial behavior is when the person had childhood behavior problems, poor behavior controls and has committed some kind of crime at a young age (Mulcahy M., Cutinelli P., Warner J. and Woodruff T. (April 01, 2011). Ridgway’s childhood life was very difficult because of his environment. His parents fought all the time and the stress at home caused him to wet his bed until he was 13 years old. His mother was controlling and very strict, so when his mother found out about it she would make fun of him in front of his family. He always felt like his mother doesn’t love him so he just wanted to be loved by his mother.
The work of Ito has shown a more significant deal of objectification with the horror stories, which is explained further inside the chronicle story of Azami’s scar. Azami a character within the book Uzumaki, the book itself contains chapters of stories from the different perspective of characters inside the book while having the weird obsession over spirals present in each chapter. The first chapters of the beginning of the book show how significant the spirals can make one’s obsession with something increase quickly. Azami’s scar on her forehead is my sign, in the chapter about Azami’s story, there is a myth of Azami having weird powers to attract the opposite sex without trying. Azami’s scar on her forehead is representing the power she has over men, while also describing how the author uses the objectification the scar to connect it to the foreseeing spirals of the book Uzumaki.
After his family members allowed for the arrest of a boy, he abused them for doing so (Lahore, 2001). It is therefore evident that while Iqbal’s relationship with his family was negative, he related to his boys well. Before being a serial Killer, Iqbal was involved in a number of criminal activities that ranged from sodomy to assault. He was involved in the assault of a respected person’s son in Shadbagh and at one point he was arrested and imprisoned for six months due to acts of sodomy (Lahore, 2001). His father’s death worsened the extent of the punishments meted out to him due to his criminal related acts.
Another similar case was also noted in Sticks and Stones. In the incident, a young boy named “John” was harassed by four other boys of the same age, who started out by targeting John with antigay slurs. This harassment led to John being shoved into a locker, physically attacked, jumped in the bathroom and tied with a noose, and lastly; John and his boyfriend were threatened by one of the other boys by being told the child knew the location of his father’s handgun which he was going to kill them with.

Youth violence has affected my life because from seeing all the violence at a young age I can already be scared for life. Growing up I heard all the terrible things that kids do, that people do, that the whole world does. It’s sad to see all the bullying that people do, kicking, punching, even stabbing. It doesn’t even have to be physical, a person can commit suicide from being harassed. If someone gets berated every day they get the feeling that they aren’t loved making them think that they are better off dead.
If bullying has negative effects on a person, then questions need to be answered about this growing phenomenon. Bullying is defined as “direct behaviours such as teasing, taunting, threatening, hitting and stealing that are initiated by one or more” (Banks, 1997, p.1). Bullying has been ever present, however, due to the extensive work of many scholars, such as Olweus (1993), the problem has been scrutinised and explored worldwide making it a concern on a global scale. Other scholars define bullying as a conscious, wilful, and intentionally hostile activity that is intended to harm (Coloroso, 2003). Pepler (2008) states that bullying is a repeated aggression in which a position of power exists between the person doing the bullying and the person
Definitely. This whole story in its brief is about a boy who commits suicide as a consequence of bullying, and a man who is mentally ripped in pieces because he sees this boy being bullied, and thinks back to the time where he himself was bullied. He, Lewis, has trauma from the time when he was bullied, and he has paranoia everytime he sees or walks by a bigger group of people, because he is afraid that they are talking stupid about him or, even worse, want to hurt him. When I read the ending of the text, I sit back with the feeling that Lewis gets some kind of control over his traumatization about the time that he was bullied. He has survived, he thinks.
