He also added an update that the lesson had been learned and after having to walk to school, his daughter "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". Numerous comments are positive, but others said he was "overdoing it".

As she started the walk, Cox talked to Kirsten about why he was making her walk to school, trying to drive home the point that if she didn't bully other kids, she'd still be on the bus.

"Was she reacting to being bullied and just got caught?"

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

Earlier this year, in Virginia, another dad made his son jog to school after he was kicked off the bus for bullying, the Ledger-Enquirer reported.

Not everyone has praised his decision, with many commenting the punishment was tantamount to "public shaming".

A father in the United States who was told by his daughter he'd have to drive her to school after she was kicked off the bus for bullying has received worldwide reaction for his response.

Theresa May was scheduled to open five days of debate of her Brexit deal on Tuesday, before an expected vote on December 11. All its assessments have seen it as a potential negative for the economy.

That five-mile walk to school was broken up over Kirsten's three-day suspension. He told any children watching to "please understand that bullying is unacceptable everywhere it will not be tolerated".

In the video he addresses those who might disagree, saying, "I know a lot of you parents are not going to agree with this and that's all right".

"I admire this father for his action".

"It's good to see that some parents still control their children instead of the other way round". "The hypocrisy lies with those who would let bullies go unpunished when a dose of their own medicine is the very best cure". "Too many parents cop out and blame their school for not bringing up their children right".

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.

"I just want the kids to know that words truly do hurt; they cut very deep and have lasting effects", Matt told OH news station WTVG.
