As terribly sad as this is I'm inclined to agree with Quintavalle here. The mother in question appeared to want children for her own selfish motives, with little thought to what will happen to them as she aged. Although her mother lived to be 101 de Lara nursed her, giving up her own life. Did she just expect her (much younger) children to do the same when they should be out learning about life and forging a career.
Sad on too many counts.
