According to police, that's why a woman beat her 3-year-old daughter, Paris, over a period of about a week last year in southwest Fort Worth.
Janice Rene Anthony, 20, also admitted to police that she choked Paris occasionally, including the night before she was found dead, prosecutors said.
The Tarrant County medical examiner reported Paris' death was "asphyxia by manual strangulation."
Anthony pleaded guilty and, on Friday, was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
