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

Dad films daughter walking to school after she was kicked off the bus for bullying

After his daughter Kirsten got suspended from riding the bus for a second time as a result of her bullying another child, Cox decided he wasn't going to give in to her request that he give her a ride.

An Ohio father who made his daughter walk five miles (8km) to school as punishment for bullying has provoked a debate on parenting. He shared the video on social media, garnering 14 million views and thousands of comments.

He later clarified to WTVG that the five miles were broken up over his daughter's three-day suspension.

"As you see this morning, she is learning otherwise", he added. But he remained in their heated vehicle, driving slowly behind her on Tuesday as she was ordered to walk along the side of the OH roadway for eight kilometres in 2-degree Celsius weather. The Ohio father shared video of her punishment as he slowly followed her inside his vehicle, as she walked in 36-degree weather.

Cox told the news outlet that he understands why a lot of parents feel the punishment is harsh but said children must be held accountable for their actions.

"I know a lot of you parents are not going to agree with this and that's alright", he says.

China and HK shares slump, tech leads losses after Huawei CFO arrest
Huawei is not the first Chinese telecoms equipment firm to face the ire of United States authorities. On the Huawei drama, Canadian authorities had said they had arrested the firm's CFO in Vancouver.

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.

One thing is for sure, little Kirsten will never take a bus ride to school for granted ever again.

Kirsten said she'd been bullied herself, but the punishment - which was actually split up over multiple days, her father said - has taught her the lesson it intended.

The video shows the student walking along a road with her backpack on and another tote in her hand.

Not everyone has praised his decision, with many commenting the punishment was tantamount to "public shaming". This isn't about his daughter, it's about getting people to say how good a parent he is.

The father later told WTVG that more parents need to hold their kids accountable.
