(KOAT-TV) An Albuquerque mother took her parental punishment public after she said her daughter vandalized her school, causing hundreds of dollars in damage.

Tony Armijo and her 10-year-old daughter, Bonnie, sat on the corner of the busy intersection of Central Avenue and Wyoming Boulevard on Friday afternoon holding a sign that read, “I vandalized my school.”

The fifth-grader said it has taught her a lesson she will never forget after getting caught throwing rocks at her school and breaking several windows.

“I did it because my friend did it, and I knew it was a bad choice,” Bonnie Armijo said.
