Wyoming mom Jeannie Crutchfield found out her 14-year-old daughter Ricki was ditching school, and she decided to take action.

Crutchfield followed Ricki to school with her camera in hand and confronted the teen about what she did.  When her daughter repeatedly denies it, Crutchfield says, “Oh yeah. Oh, yes, Ricki. So guess what I’m doing, Ricki? We’re going to hold hands and we’re going to go to class together.”

“I was just trying to prove a point to my daughter,” Crutchfield said, she also added that other parents have been told that the school could do little to prevent student truancy.

Crutchfield posted the video to Facebook saying:

This is what happens when my daughter Rickilee Durrant can’t act right at school…enjoy parents!

Since the video was posted, Ricki’s attendance has gone up according to KTWO.

Ricki doesn’t seem to hold the video against her mother saying, “It just goes to show that my mom cares.”
