FORT MORGAN, Colo. — A Colorado mother wants to force her kids to wear T-shirts that say they’re a “bully” and “thief” as punishment for their wrongdoings, but the children’s school won’t let her.

According to KUSA, Jessica Rocha says she has run out of options in trying to curb their bad behavior at school.  She says her fiance’s 8-year-old daughter and her 9-year-old son are having “serious problems” at their elementary school, the station reports.

Rocha says her fiance’s daughter has stolen from Walmart, neighbors, a friend’s house and her purse.  She says her son argues and “is a bully in school,” according to KUSA.

When Rocha made her fiance’s daughter wear the “thief” shirt to her class, the principal reportedly made her cover it up.  Afterward, district officials told her that she can’t force her kids to wear the shirts at school, KUSA reports.
