Picks and Pans Review: A Grim Legacy
>Their numbers are few, but serial killers' kids share unique challenges, says Jenn Carson, a child and adolescent counselor—and a serial killer's daughter.
What do you have in common?
There's extreme guilt for loving your parent. People think you should have known. There's fear that you have monster DNA.
Is serial killing genetic?
There's no instance when a serial killer begot another serial killer.
How do you cope?
Many people hide who they are. I used to. Many others kill themselves: Charles Manson Jr., for example.
What can be done to help?
These children need sympathy and awareness of their experience. They're secondary victims.
