Mother sends children to school with "shaming shirts"

Posted: Updated:
FT. MORGAN, Colo. -

Taking a page straight out of The Scarlet Letter, a mother punishes her children by sending them to school with so-called "shaming shirts."

The t-shirts are decked out with transgressions written on them.

"We have tried everything...taking toys away.  We've tried grounding from TV," said Jessica Rocha.

One has "I am disrespectful," another "I steal."  Both included definitions of the vices below the message, but school officials don't appreciate the morality lesson.

They've made the kids cover up and now Rocha says they've overstepped their boundaries.

"It's okay for the school to do it because they're professionals --  they have a degree -- but it's not okay for a parent to draw attention to her child to make her child answer for what he or she has done."

School officials wouldn't comment on the issue, but some parents did, coming to the consensus that disciplining children is a difficult decision that all parents wrestle with.
