A mom scolded her daughter for using Facebook to bully, harass and plan fights with other children. The Milwaukee mother made sure her 12-year-old's friends saw the video as well by posting it to her child's Facebook page.
The Milwaukee mom that scolded her daughter is Lorraine Wells, who said she caught young Luticia on Facebook. Wells had previously told her daughter she couldn't have a Facebook page, but caught the 12-year-old with a fake profile plotting a fight and talking to boys.
"Tell them that you can't be on Facebook," Wells said in the video. "I can't be on Facebook," a sullen Luticia replied.
The process repeated with the girl having a boyfriend as well, and telling the camera "I'm reading my Bible."
The girl had already been suspended once for fighting, but was using the social media website to plan and fight again. Wells said during the video that the consequences would be much worse than an embarrassing video if she caught her daughter again.
"The next time that she's on Facebook and I catch her on Facebook, I'm beating the hell out of her," the Milwaukee mother threatened in the video, which went viral with over a half million views.
However, when a reporter asked her about that comment specifically, Wells denied ever hitting her child and said that she only wanted the best for her.
"I'm not out to hurt my daughter, I want her to live. I want her to be somebody," she told HLN.
This isn't the first time a parent has used unusual and public punishments to get the point across. When California mother Frances Hena found out her daughter had been imitating Miley Cyrus' twerking at a school dance, she embarrassed her in front of hundreds of strangers at an intersection.
Hena found out from a friend about her 11-year-old's behavior, so she made her stand at a busy intersection in Bakersfield for two hours and hold a sign that read "I was disrespecting my parents by twerking at a school dance."
"That's ridiculous to even think that's okay at a school dance," Hena told ABC News. "When she's 18, she can do whatever she wants. As of right now, that's not something she's going to be doing."
