Father Makes Bully Daughter Walk Eight Kilometres To School

The father posted a video to his Facebook page on Monday showing his daughter trudging along the roadside as he followed behind her in his car

WTVG reported that Swanton resident Matt Cox hopes the harsh lesson will stop his daughter from doing it again.

Matt Cox made his daughter, Kristen, walk five miles to school in 36-degree weather after she was suspended from riding the school bus on November 30.

In the video, Cox said a lot of children today feel that the things their parents do for them are a right and not a privilege.

"So in some ways, this father is doing the right thing of admitting and accepting his daughter's behaviour", she said.

The two-minute video showing Kirsten on her 8km walk in two-degree weather has been viewed over 16.5 million times.

"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, '" he continued.

"You are teaching your child accountability for her actions and I fully support your tough approach with her." wrote Kate Millar Young.

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).

Some people are praising the father's punishment, others are saying it's too extreme.

Numerous 63,000 comments that have since popped up on his video have been positive, with parents of bullies and bullied alike thanking Mr Cox for his parenting.

Cox told WTVG that he didn't want to be a parent who brushed off his child's actions with the mantra, "Kids will be kids".

Mr Cox follows behind her in his auto in the town of Swanton, offering commentary on entitlement and bullying. "More parents should act like you".

Cox said he sat down with his children to show them the comments on the video so that they could understand the effects of bullying.

"I don't think she should be publicly shamed for all the world to see", wrote Matt Rapier.

"I was bullied many times by kids bigger than me", she said.

"Humiliate her by putting her on Facebook being punished".

"Good job dad. I agree with your decision because bullying is not acceptable", reads a comment. "I hope that parents hold their kids accountable", he said.
