Re: Fourteen year old strangles new born
According to the article, others were suspicious that she was pregnant, but the mother was in "complete denial" so with all these suspicions being brought up around her you'd think the least she could do is check. It's possible that she just couldn't allow herself to accept that her 14 year old daughter was having sex and was pregnant. Either way that's poor parenting on her part.
Also wouldn't the mother consider it odd that her daughter was all of a sudden wearing clothes that were several sizes too big for 9 months? This is a 100 pound girl carrying a 9.5 pound baby, just the baby itself is nearly a tenth of her body weight she would have been showing.
This is why I don't have one iota of sympathy for the mother, she played a part in the death of this baby, she might not have been the one strangling it, but if she had done a better job of parenting, this tragedy could well have been prevented.
And considering the end term of her pregnancy assuming it was recent (didn't check dates) it was summer so it would have been hot as all hell piling on clothes to hide the bump. Stupid girl should know (most times) family is thicker than blood. Generally there is someone in the family that will always be there for a particular family member.
