OH dad makes girl walk miles to school for bullying on bus

Matt Cox posted to a now-viral video of his daughter walking down the road in 36 degree weather as he follows behind in his auto.

"My lovely daughter is going to walk 5 miles to school in 36 degree weather", he says. In the video, Cox asked children who watched it to remember that "bullying is unacceptable everywhere and will not be tolerated".

He shared the video on social media, garnering 14 million views and thousands of comments.

Cox said he knew a lot of parents may not agree with his decision, but he was doing what he felt was right to teach his daughter a lesson.

After Matt Cox of Swanton, Ohio, found out that his daughter was suspended from her school bus for bullying another student for the second time, he told her he wouldn't be driving her to school.

However, the experience seems to have been successful.

"She said 'Daddy, you're going to have to take me to school next week, '" Cox said.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Costume Photos Debut
Jake Gyllenhaal has joined Instagram and used the site to reveal that he is starring as a villain in the next Spider-Man film. Spider-Man: Far From Home is a sequel to 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming and is due to be released in July 2019.

"I'm not going to be another parent that's just going to brush things under the rug", he said.

Facebook users had plenty of words of praise for Cox among more than 62,000 comments on the video.

Mr Cox added that many children feel entitled to privileges like being taken to school in the morning by auto or bus.

However, others pointed out that by shaming her with the punishment video, the girl was arguably being bullied by her father. She admitted that she was "sad" after being bullied.

Kirsten explained that her dad's punishment did indeed make her learn her lesson for bullying as she'd been in a similar position in the past herself. "I hope that parents hold their kids accountable". She probably spends at least that much time every day during the winter running around outdoors at recess or after school with her friends.

Regardless of what others think, Cox ensures that the sanction was given in the hopes that children and parents alike start to take the threat of bullying more seriously. This isn't about his daughter, it's about getting people to say how good a parent he is.
