SWANTON, Ohio — After being kicked off the bus for a second time this school year for bullying, an Ohio father used the punishment as a teaching moment for his 10-year-old daughter.
So he made her walk 5 miles in the 36-degree cold to school as he drove behind her, WTVG reported.
"A lot of children today feel that the things their parents do for them is a right, not a privilege," Cox said in the video. "Such as parents taking their children to school in the morning or even bus rides to school in the morning."
The video soon went viral and garnered more than 16 million views with critics and supporters of the punishment.
"Parents need to hold their kids accountable," Cox told WTVG. "That was me showing how I hold my kid accountable. I'm not going to be another parent that's just going to brush things under the rug and say kids will be kids."
Cox later posted an update to the video.
