Norwegian mass killerís mother 'sexualised him as a child'

Anders Behring Breivik

Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik's mother 'sexualised' her four-year-old son, smacked him, and often told him she wished he were dead, a new book on the right-wing extremist has claimed.

Child psychologist reports printed in the book 'A Norwegian tragedy', said that when Breivik was just four-years-old, his mother became preoccupied with fears that her son would violently assault someone.

According to the Telegraph, the psychologist reports show that Wenche Behring already felt her son was 'aggressive, hyperactive and clingy,' when she was breastfeeding him.

"She saw him as an adult violent person, even though he was only a small boy. She was afraid that he would assault people," said Aage Borchgrevink, author of the book.

According to the psychologists, by the time he was four years old, she 'sexualised' him and hit him.

"The mother and Anders sleep in the same bed at night with very close bodily contact," psychologists from Norway''s centre for child and youth psychiatry (SSBU), reported.

The SSBU report described Behring as 'a woman with an extremely difficult upbringing, borderline personality structure and an all-encompassing if only partially visible depression' who 'projects her primitive aggressive and sexual fantasies onto him (Breivik)'.
