HOUSTON, TX–  One Houston mom is pretty upset after she says her 7 year-old daughter was forced to sit on the floor for a month as punishment for scrawling a harmless picture on her desk.

This mother wants to stay anonymous to protect her daughter, but decided to speak out after she says her daughter fessed up that she apparently lost her desk privileges for doodling.

Westwood Elementary, the school in question, says the teacher was reprimanded and the district offered to transfer the girl to another school.  The mom decided a fresh start was what her artist daughter needed — she’ll be heading to second grade with washable crayons.
