Milwaukee mom punishes daughter with Facebook video

Milwaukee Mom Punishes Daughter with Facebook Video

A Milwaukee mother used her daughter's affinity for Facebook against her.

According to WMC-TV, Walls had already prohibited her daughter from using the site. After learning the 12-year-old was suspended from school for a fight originating on the social network, Walls decided to up the ante.

She posted a video to Facebook scolding her daughter for using the social media site to talk with boys and start fights. WDJT's Facebook page erupted with positive and negative responses to the video.

Mom Lorraine Walls says she's already banned her daughter, Latisha, twice from using the social media site. Walls says Latisha lied about her age and was bullying others on the site.

'If you can get a child and expose that child to help that child, not to hurt 'em. I'm not out to hurt Latisha. I want her to live. I want her to be somebody,' Walls said.

The video has already racked up half a million views and plenty of responses on WDJT's Facebook page.

One user posted: 'I just don't agree with parents doing this on social media. ... don't need to put it out there so that they can then be ridiculed. How are you going to tell your daughter not to act a fool on FB - but then you do.'

Walls told WDJT she doesn't regret the video and she's simply preparing her daughter for a cruel world.

None of us live in that home...this mother is doing what SHE feels is needed in this situation; if she crossed a 'line', authorities will surely interfere/intervene. She can also remove the 'social media' from "latisha"; parental controls on the pc.?

It would be interesting to learn about those who criticize her. Do their children display unacceptable behavior? Have they ever bullied on FB? Most of the parents I know who criticize other parents have delinquent children!

Social Media is the biggest dumbest bunch of BS ever foisted on a generation.
It inhibits them from dealing with the real world and slows their ability to nurture REAL social skills.... like talking to each other face to face and dealing with the human dynamic humans need!
Only idiots think social media like FaceBook has any real pointed value as SOCIAL media.
FaceBook has limited business potential.... LinkedIn is so much better.
FaceBook is simply.... stupid!
Try actually talking to your 'social' network of friends....
FaceBook like texting has turned the human voice of PHONES into TeleTypes.... something this country struggled to advance from over 100 years ago.
Talk about selling a backwards technology.... to the innocent.
Shame on these corrupt businesses...
Stop 'tweeting' and 'liking' and start actually sharing YOU.
Applause to the parent.

The Mom did not act like a fool. She gave her daughter a taste of her own medicine. Let her daughter feel what the people she was bullying felt. Why are people laying blame on the mother for trying to HELP her daughter? What better way to teach a person empathy.

I am 100% behind mom. She is a good old fashioned mother.

As far as the child being ridiculed? LOL.....I attended Catholic School with "the nuns" from 1960 to 1966. This kid doesn't know the meaning of ridiculed

I applaud this mom. She actually took time to discipline her child and in a way her kid understood. Kids today don't get taught these lessons and you have many liberal parnets who do not teach these things to kids. Facebook should be sued for not enforcing the age limit rquired to be on the site. They need to have an age verification process as young teens and younger have no business being on social networks anyways. They contribute to lower IQs as has been proven just like the use of ipad leads to lower IQs. This mother did right an many others need to step up put the laws down and forget about being your kids buddy. Be a parent and be one who cares and teaches your kid.

This mother took action because she cares about her child. Today kids r getting killed or killing themselves because of what goes on with internet technology. More parents ought to b more concerned with what their children are doing outside of their sight

yeah all of the people that say the mom went to far are the ones that turn a blind eye to how bad their kids are and let them act however they want. Then when their kids are the cause of someones elses kids death they act like their kids was an angel and they cant understand why it happend

I think its a great idea, especially is she was using social media to bully other children! To the people that disagree with how this mother went about the punishment....what if your child was being bullied by this young lady.....YOU would be the first one complaining and blaming the mother for not having control over her! BOOB....promlem solved! KUDOS TO MOM
