Dad makes daughter walk 5 miles to school for bullying on bus


SWANTON, Ohio (WBNS) — A video of an Ohio father’s reaction to his daughter bullying another student has gone viral.

Matt Cox, of Swanton, posted the video on his Facebook page Monday.

He said his 10-year-old daughter was kicked off her school bus for the second time this year for bullying.

"Let me be clear: Bullying is unacceptable, especially in my household," he says in the video.

When his daughter said he would have to take her to school since she couldn't ride the bus, he told her she would be walking.

The video shows his daughter along her five-mile walk in 36 degrees as he drives behind her.

Cox said a lot of parents may not agree with him, but he did what he felt was right to teach her a lesion.

The video has been viewed more than 18 million views and has more than 382,000 shares.

Cox updated the post “Lesson learned! Still has all her extremities intact is happy and healthy and seems to have a new outlook on bullying as well as a new appreciation for some of the simple things in life she used to take for granted #HOLDOURKIDSACOUNTABLE #STOPBULLYING”.
