The House on Mango Street Chapter 13 - There Was an Old Woman...

Rosa Vargas is a woman in Esperanza's neighborhood who cannot control her large litter of children alone. She was left by her no-good husband without any money for the children and can do nothing to stop them from misbehaving and causing injury and harm to other living beings, inanimate objects, and themselves. One of the children even jumped off a high roof of a house to his death. She gave up trying to parent and control them long ago.
