Don’t let others fight your battles for you – especially not your seven-year-old daughter.

Police in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania say Delaina Garling asked her daughter, 7, to pepper spray employees at a dollar store where Garling had been banned for alleged theft.

Garling went to Family Dollar Store on Monday before employees tried to walk her out of the establishment. She whipped out a can of pepper spray and used it on some workers. When employees tackled her, Garling gave the can to her little bundle of joy and said, “You know what to do, baby. Spray it!”

The girl did not listen to her mother and Garling was hauled downtown by police. It’s unclear what happened to her daughter.
