Father's harsh punishment for daughter who bullied a child

"My lovely daughter is going to walk five miles to school in 36-degree weather", Cox says in a video he recorded while driving behind her as she walked.

After 10-year-old Kirsten was suspended for three days from the school bus for a second-time bullying offence, Matt Cox made a decision to teach her a life lesson. He was trailing her in a vehicle.

The video of the father's punishment has garnered over 15m views on Facebook and thousands of comments.

So Cox told his daughter she'd be making the five-mile trek to school on foot (with Cox in a auto close behind to ensure her safety).

Cox said he split Kirsten's punishment over three days and she finished on Wednesday.

"This is my small way of trying to stop it in my household", Matt Cox, of Swanton said.

Her father Matt Cox made her walk eight kilometres to school while he followed her in a auto.

According to WTVG News, Mr Cox broke up Kirsten's walk over her three-day school bus suspension this week.

"As the grandparent of an autistic boy who has been the victim of neighbourhood bullies, I applaud you!"

"Sometimes being a good parent is hard, much harder to take the time and effort to raise them right than not to do", writes one Facebook user.

"Parents need to hold their kids accountable, so, that was me showing how I am holding my kid accountable", Cox told WTVG.

A video of an OH father's unorthodox punishment for his bullying daughter has gone viral.

"You are teaching your child accountability for her actions and I fully support your tough approach with her." wrote Kate Millar Young. It was the second time she had gotten into trouble for bullying. He told any children watching to "please understand that bullying is unacceptable everywhere it will not be tolerated".

"I realized she viewed the privilege of riding the bus and or auto rides to and from school as a right and not a privilege", Cox told WEWS.
