Parricide (the Father is Murdered by his child) and Matricide (The Mother is Murdered by her child) are not common. When children turn on their parents it is because of severe abuse.

The Menendez brothers, a high profile example, were extremely sexually verbally and physically abused. The father perpetrated unconscionable sexual abuse while mother did nothing to stop him.

In such cases of extreme abuse children can turn against their parents. It's a sad predicament because society doesn't protect against child abuse well enough and when children have had enough they are delegated to life in prison.

Remember, there is a big difference between your child saying, :I hate you!” and “I wish you were dead!”
