Ohio Father Makes Daughter Walk to School for Bullying
Every parent has their own way of punishing their children, right? Well, it seems that no matter what you decide as a punishment there will always be someone that disagrees with you. One Ohio father is learning that first hand after posting a video on social media showing his 10-year-old daughter fulfilling her punishment: walking five miles to school in 36-degree weather.
Now, if you're already judging let me give you a little backstory. According to USA Today, Matt Cox' 10-year-old daughter had been suspended for bullying another student on the school bus for the second time, when she told her dad he'd have to drive her to school, he decided this would be the time to teach his daughter a lesson.
In the video posted to Facebook, Cox explains the situation while driving slowly behind his daughter, and states that he knows some parents "are not going to agree with this, but that is alright because I’m doing what I feel is right to teach my daughter a lesson and to stop her from bullying," he said in the video. "Bullying is unacceptable."
Some parents were quick to criticize the punishment saying it was too extreme for a ten-year-old, while others praised the father for showing her some tough love.
