Dad makes girl walk miles to school for bullying on bus

Yahoo Staff Writer

One Ohio father has parents across the internet divided after a video of his 10-year-old daughter's punishment for bullying went viral on Facebook.

Matt Cox is a father of four from Swenton, Ohio, who doesn't mess around when it comes to teaching his children a lesson. After his daughter Kirsten got suspended from riding the bus for a second time as a result of her bullying another child, Cox decided he wasn't going to give in to her request that he give her a lift. Instead, he would make her walk to school.

"This lovely lady is my 10-year-old daughter, who has for the second time this school year been kicked off the school bus due to bullying another student," Cox narrated the video of him trailing his daughter to school. "Friday when my daughter brought home her paperwork for her bus suspension, she said, 'Daddy you're gonna have to take me to school next week.' As you see this morning, she is learning otherwise."

The two-minute video showing Kirsten on her five-mile walk in 36-degree weather has been viewed over 15 million times. And naturally, parents have differing opinions about the punishment.
