A Milwaukee mom's action against her daughters use of Facebook has sparked a lot of controversy. Lorraine Walls says, she's not backing down from the critics of her unconventional disciplining, after she posted a video online scolding her daughter for her actions on the social media website. The video now, has gone viral. Sachelle Saunders gives us a look.

"Tell them that you can't be on Facebook. (I can't be on Facebook). I can't have a boyfriend. (I can't have a boyfriend). I'm reading my bible, get your bible, show them that you're reading your bible." 

It all started with a fake Facebook page. "She had got caught sneaking a page on Facebook twice." says Walls. 

One that quickly spiraled out of control for 12 year old, Lutisha. 

"Now don't get slapped because you're already in hot water." Walls says, "She had already snuck back on Facebook, talking to some young guy, and plotting a fight with her friend."

That fight wound up getting Lutisha suspended. When her mom, Lorraine Walls, found out that this all began online, she decided to take action, online. 

"If you can get a child and expose that child to help that child, not to hurt 'em, I'm not out to hurt Lutisha. I want her to live, I want her to be somebody." says Walls, "Now tell Shyann that you're sorry."

The video took a life of it's own on the web, garnering more than half a million views. Thousands praising the mom for her discipline tactics. Others taken aback by moments like this: "The next time that she's on Facebook and I catch her on Facebook. I'm beating the hell out of her."

"Well this mother is on Facebook talking to her child like this. But you never said anything about my child on Facebook under the wrong name, you never said anything about my child on Facebook being a bully, you never said anything about that." Walls says. 

Walls is also saying she doesn't hit her daughter. "She doesn't get whoopins, she's not getting beat, she doesn't get abused."

Regardless of the criticism, Walls says she's not letting up on her pre-teen, calling it tough love for a cruel world. "We have to save our youth. We got too many laying out there dead because of gun shot wounds, we got too many that's coming up pregnant."
