(Scroll down for video) A mother was arrested after she beat her children, causing them to bleed.

However, the woman of Louisiana, said that she was just doing her job as a mother and prosecutors seem to agree with her.

30-year-old Schaquana Spears, who is a mother of six children, was jailed for beating her three children after they were caught with stolen goods.

Spears was arrested in Baton Rouge, and charged with two counts of cruelty to juveniles after police said that she beat her three oldest children, who are 13, 12 and 10 years old.

The 12 and 13-year-old children had lacerations on their arms, which were bleeding. All of her children were taken from her custody.

Spears said that she was trying to be a good mother and teach her children not to steal after seeing them with items they stole following a break in at a neighbor's house.

Spears said that her kids are everything to her and she is dedicated to raising them right. She said that she does not want her kids to go in the footsteps of their father, who is in prison.

After her arrest, Spears was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, where her bond was set at $2,500.

However, the prosecutor decided to drop all the charges against her.
