A Denver mother has received nationwide attention for shaming her daughter in an online video after discovering she had posted racy photos online and pretended to be 19-years-old.
"You're 13," Valerie Stark told her daughter in a Facebook video. "So why does your Facebook page say that your 19? Are you 19?"
"No," replied the girl, who had her face blurred out in the video.
"You've got a Facebook page and you're on there with your bra on, right?" Starks asked the girl. "Is that what you do?"

Moments later, the girl breaks down in tears. Starks, however, did not relent.
"Don't cry now. You wasn't crying when you was posting pictures on Facebook, was you? In a bra? Some little girl in some lace panties that you know you don't own. You still wear panties that say Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday," she said.

"She watches Disney Channel," the mom added. "She has a bed time. She doesn't sit around in a bra. She doesn't own any lace panties and she doesn't know how to wipe her butt good at 13. But you're on Facebook in a bra."
Video of the interaction has gone viral online, amassing more than 10 million views and 300,000 shares in just days.
Starks told KMGH-TV her child has had previous problems with the social platform.
"She's had issues with Facebook in the past, at least four times in the past," Starks said. "She spent half of last summer on punishment after being on Facebook, and it wasn't even half as bad."
The Denver mom told her daughter she didn't make the film to embarrass her.
"I said, 'I did this because I love you not because I really wanted to embarrass you,'" she said. "I wanted to make a statement and a stand for all parents that this is not going to be tolerated."
