(KGO-TV) -- A Colorado mom is taking aim at her kids' school, claiming administrators are preventing her from punishing them for misbehaving.

Jessica Rocha was having problems with her two kids. She says Aurora, 8, couldn't stop stealing things and Xavier, 9, was being a bully.

Rocha says she tried everything to get her kids to behave, but nothing worked. So she sent Aurora to school wearing a t-shirt labeled "I steal" and planned to have Zavier wear one saying "I'm a bully."

Aurora wore the shirt to school, and officials immediately told her to cover up. Officials said it was demeaning.

Rocha claims the t-shirt punishment worked, saying Aurora has stopped stealing. She says the school is over-stepping its bounds, but isn't saying if she plans to do anything about it.
