Mother asks Facebook community to help punish her daughter

Kyrene de la Estrella Elementary School sent photographic evidence: wads of toilet paper stuck to the bathroom ceiling.  

"Even though it's minor, it's significant to me," Jeanene Lacasse, the girl’s mother, said. "We don't run that type of ship."  

Lacasse went to her community's Facebook page and volunteered her 10-year-old for work.

The post reads: "My sweet daughter decided to participate in vandalism on the last day of school... If anyone owns a business and needs/wants a 10 year old volunteer please let me know."

People responded immediately.  

Lacasse’s daughter, Anni, now has days of cleaning up other messes ahead of her. Anni says her mother's mode of discipline might be unconventional, but not unexpected. 

"She's kind of, like, different sometimes," Anni said.  

Anni denied taking part in the vandalism, but said she was there when it happened. Her mother said there is still some guilt by association.
