Father Posts Daugther’s Bullying Punishment To Facebook

Children need to be taught lessons. In this age of social media, many parents have taken their forms to punishment to the net to embarrass their children into behaving. Many of those punishments have been egregious and cruel, but this one seems to be reasonable. That said, someone will always find a way to be faux outraged…

According to 13ABC, Ohio dad Matt Cox was sick and tired of his 10-year-old daughter being suspended from school for bullying her classmates, so he decided he was going to put an end to it. Cox forced his daugther to walk 5 miles to school in 36-degree weather over her 3-day suspension and uploaded his recording to Facebook.

Many parents applauded Cox for teaching his daughter a lesson, other, more sensitive types were big mad:

Something is wrong in the home if this is how you try to teach your child how to be a good person. Punishments may make a kid stop doing the behavior, but it doesn’t change their heart. You need to sit down and figure out why she is bullying, spend some TIME, instead of just punishing. Add to that, putting it on social media so you can get some attention? yuck.

Do YOU have a problem with this kind of punishment?
