U.S. dad makes daughter walk 8km to school for bullying on bus

School bus Facebook viral video ohio bullying

Cox says that while the 10-year-old was upset when she started the walk, he talked to her during it, and by the end she had calmed down.

The viral clip showing Mr Cox's daughter make her way to her OH school in 2℃ temperatures has been viewed more than 15m times and the father is adamant his method of punsihment was justified.

An Ohio father who made his daughter walk five miles (8km) to school as punishment for bullying has provoked a debate on parenting.

"I just want the kids to know that words truly do hurt", he said. He also posted a video of her carrying out her punishment to social media, which attracted over 15 million views and thousands of comments. It was the second time she had gotten into trouble for bullying.

His video went viral and, to his surprise, he received more praise than criticism.

On Monday, he took video of his daughter's five-mile walk in 36-degree weather.


"I love how you followed her to make sure she was safe while still teaching a lesson". Riding the school bus or getting a lift from your parents is a privilege, he said during the video, and one his daughter had lost with her bad behavior.

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.

Cox knows that his method won't sit well with other parents, but he's ok with that, since he believes that's the best way he can teach his "beautiful daughter" accountability. She probably spends at least that much time every day during the winter running around outdoors at recess or after school with her friends.

Numerous people commenting applauded the dad's actions.

He later posted an update on his Facebook page, saying Kirsten is fine and has learned her lesson.

Cox told WTVG he thinks the punishment worked, but he would give his daughter those same consequences again if he had to. "We as parents need to stop the bullying on the home front because bullying only breeds bullying".
