USA dad makes daughter walk 8km to school for bullying on bus

Swanton Ohio was made to walk to school by her father after she was suspended for bullying

Matt Cox's daughter was suspended from riding the school bus on November 30, according to Cleveland television station WEWS.

"I know a lot of you parents are not going to agree with this, but that is all right, because I'm doing what I feel is right to teach my daughter a lesson and to stop her from bullying", Mr Cox said.

Cox adds that he hates bullying, so he used the long walk to school to let his daughter know how wrong it was that she'd practiced it. "So today, my lovely daughter is going to walk five miles (eight kilometres) to school in 36 degree (2C) weather".

Still, others praised the father for a job well done, writing, "I love how you followed her to make sure she was safe while still teaching a lesson".

His divisive behaviour led some to point out that Mr Cox appeared to be guilty of bullying his own daughter, particularly as he filmed and shared the punishment, identifying his child by name.

A father in the United States has been slammed for the harsh punishment he dished out to his daughter after discovering she had been bullying another child.

Cox commentates in the video, sharing his views on "life lessons" and '#HOLDOURKIDSACOUNTABLE'.

Matt Cox took to Facebook on Monday to share footage of his young daughter making the five-mile trek to her school amid frigid temperatures as punishment after she was suspended from her bus for bullying.

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

Matt hopes that children and parents alike start to take the threat of bullying more seriously.

He believes his daughter learned her lesson about bullying and will now appreciate the bus ride to school. "And I hope that parents hold their kids accountable".

Mr Cox told News 5 Cleveland that he had shown Kirsten and his two other children the video and people's comments on it. "We as parents need to stop the bullying on the home front because bullying only breeds bullying".
