Sandra , 44, and Mariah , 20, who live in the Los Angeles area, like to think of themselves more as best friends than mother and daughter. Sandra, who works in real estate, says that the two do everything together, from spray tanning to injections. We cook together, we fold clothes together, we work out together, we go to clubs, concerts and comedy clubs together.
The mother and daughter accused of killing a pregnant year-old in Chicago before cutting out her baby distracted her with a photo album in order to strangle her from behind, prosecutors said in court documents. In an effort to convince a judge not to release the mother, year-old Clarisa Figueroa, and daughter, year-old Desiree Figueroa, from custody, prosecutors on Friday detailed how the duo allegedly plotted to kill Marlen Ochoa-Lopez, who was nine months pregnant. On April 23, the Figueroas allegedly lured Ochoa-Lopez to their home after she got out of high school under the guise of giving her free baby clothes and a stroller that had been offered in a Facebook group for pregnant mothers. That's when Clarisa snuck up on Ochoa-Lopez and allegedly attempted to strangle her from behind with a cord. But prosecutors say Ochoa-Lopez was able to get her fingers between the cord and her neck, prompting Clarisa to yell at her daughter to help. Clarisa then climbed on top of Ochoa-Lopez and continued to strangle her for 4 to 5 minutes until they were sure she was dead, prosecutors said. Clarisa then called , claiming the baby she had just delivered herself was not breathing.
I spoke with three different women who identify their relationships with their mothers as complicated. Below are their stories. I would classify my relationship with my mom as being on the friendlier side of cordial. I had a really lovely childhood. My mom was home with all five of us kids, and she drove us to soccer practices and dance lessons.
If your mom is still at the top of your speed-dial list, science explains the reason for that: mother-daughter relationships are the strongest of all parent-child bonds when it comes to the common ways their brains process emotion, according to a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience. Based on the findings, brain chemistry is responsible for that. According to the study on 35 families, the part of the brain that regulates emotions is more similar between mothers and daughters than any other intergenerational pairing.
