After being suspended from the school bus for her 2nd bullying offense, Kirsten Cox was made to walk the 5 miles from her home to her school by her father, Matt. Cox, who’s from Ohio, posted a Facebook video of his daughter trudging alongside the road as he drove behind her, commenting: “Bullying is unacceptable. This is my small way of trying to stop it in my household.” Of the whopping 63,000 comments, most are positive, with people applauding Cox’s harsh stance against bullying.
- Was the father’s punishment a form of bullying?
- Do you think the daughter has learned her lesson?
An Ohio father who made his daughter go to school five miles (8 km) as a punishment for intimidation provoked a debate about parenting.
After Kirsten was suspended from the school bus for a second bullying offense for three days, Matt Cox decided to teach her a life lesson.
He made her trudge to school on a cold day while he followed behind in a car.
