Girl gets suspended for bullying, father makes her walk to school

Girl gets suspended for bullying, father makes her walk to school

Matt Cox's daughter was suspended last week, and made the decision to let her walk five miles to school rather than driving her.

"I know a lot of you parents are not going to agree with this and that's alright", Cox can be heard saying during the video, which runs almost two minutes.

Mr Cox published the video later that day, and since then it has been watched over 16 million times and shared on the social media platform almost 350,000 times.

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 vehicle.

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". 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.

The video has been shared more than 340,000 times as of Thursday morning.

Mr Cox described the unusual punishment as a "life lesson" and has won applause from many victims of bullying but others have questioned whether publicly shaming a child is an suitable way to teach them right from wrong.

His daughter, Kirsten, said she's learned her lesson, according to WTVG.

Matt Cox, from OH, chose to teach his daughter Kirsten a lesson by not only making her walk, but also drove slowly alongside her while filming it - the video has now been viewed millions of times all over the world.

Numerous comments are positive, but others said he was "overdoing it". "Though she probably deserved to be punished, internet videos are forever".

After the video went viral, he posted an update saying, "lesson learned!"

Cox told WTVG he thinks the video has made a difference, so he'd do the same thing again.

"I know a lot of you parents are not going to agree with this and that's all right". "We as parents need to stop the bullying on the home front because bullying only breeds bullying".
