Ohio dad makes his daughter 10 walk to school after bullying

On Monday, Cox shared a video on Facebook of his daughter walking along a road wearing her backpack.

"Let me make this extremely clear: Bullying is unacceptable, especially in my household", said Mr Matt Cox.

Cox says in the video that for the second time this year, his daughter was caught bullying another student on the bus.

Cox said his daughter told him that he had to drive her to school the following week, but he chose to teach her lesson instead.

"My attractive daughter is going to walk 5 miles to school in 36 degree weather", he says.

Cox went on to explain that, as he sees it, a lot of children believe that certain things, such as a ride to school in the morning from their parents or their bus driver, are "a right" and not a privilege that can be taken away when one disobeys the rules.

Cox's video has been watched 16 million times.

The five-mile walk to school was broken up over Kirsten's three-day suspension.

The next morning Cox made her walk 8km to school in temperatures of 2C while he drove in the auto behind her.

He said walking 8 kilometres to school in 2 degrees Celsius weather was her punishment for bullying.

"You are teaching your child accountability for her actions and I fully support your tough approach with her." wrote Kate Millar Young.

On the Facebook post he captioned the video "life lessons" and told 13ABChe hopes other children will see this and make a choice to be kinder to others. "Though she probably deserved to be punished, internet videos are forever".

Cox told WTVG he thinks the punishment worked, but he would give his daughter those same consequences again if he had to.

Numerous people commenting applauded the dad's actions.

"Good job dad. I agree with your decision because bullying is not acceptable", reads a comment.

They "seem to show a great deal of empathy towards some of the sad stories that I read with them", Mr Cox said. "And I hope that parents hold their kids accountable".
