This research was done in an attempt to find out what kind of experience in real life and sense of values are influential to life-destroying behaviors in elementary school children and junior high school students and how the relations are different among the two age-groups. The subjects who gave answers to our questionnaire were 225 elementary school children from 3 schools and 256 junior high school students also from 3 schools. As for the factor analyses of their answers concerning their experiences in real life and sense of values, the two groups showed a similar five-factor structure but the factor structures of the life-destroying behavior in both groups were different. Many experiences in real life correlated with life-destroying behaviors while correlations between the sense of values and life-destroying behavior were limited. As for the results of a multiple linear regression analysis, only one factor 'affirmation of violence & exclusion of the aged' related to all the life-destroying behaviors. Their affinity to the nature had a positive influence to the elementary school children's 'unconscious killing with light motive' and 'killing waterside creatures' and junior high school students' 'unconscious killing with light motive' and 'brutal killing'. The elementary school children's experience of breeding pets had a negative influence to 'killing familiar creatures' and 'killing small wild animals'. The junior high school students' sense of 'denial to physical punishment' had a restrictive influence to their 'unconscious killing with light motive' and 'brutal killing'.
