A 10 year old girl was kicked off the school bus for the second time this year for bullying. Her Father made her walk the 8km to School. Do you agree with this Dad's decision or is this abuse?
Closed

The Ohio Dad, says his daughter brought home a note from the school explaining that she had been suspended from the busing service.
The daughter then said that he was going to have to take her to school the following week.

The Dad thought otherwise. He wanted to make it extremely clear: Bullying is unacceptable, especially in my household.

Wanting to teach his daughter a lesson, he made her walk the 8km to School while he followed behind in his car.

I absolutely agree with this Dads decision. I bet she will think twice about bullying again. She automatically assumed that Daddy would drive her .... but what lesson would she be learning?
She would probably enjoy having a drive instead of taking the bus.

I believe it is an acceptable form of punishment - Tough Love.
He followed behind in his car which would insure her safety ... just a little lesson that she hopefully gets this time.

More parents should follow this example. Children need to learn they shouldn't bully others.It has been too long that parents have been afraid to discipline their children,because they could be charged with child abuse.

Well, she has to get to school somehow. She had a great opportunity with the bus and messed up.

Only once is good to teach her a lesson that what she's doing is wrong, and as long as she was safe doing so, I have no problem with it!

Dad was definitely correct. Hopefully she learns it's completely unacceptable to bully. She would not have learned anything except that bad behavior gets her special privileges if he had driven her. Way to go Dad!!!

good for him if he did follow in his car to make sure she is safe , a reasonable discipline. Sometimes the old school way works altho I do not condone punishment and abuse. no abuse physical or mental on this one as stated.

This would have been something I would have done with my Children.They learnt that there was consequences for every thing they did.

That’s a bit harsh! Taking away technology is the way to go these days.

I completely agree. I commend both the driver of the bus as well as the father of the child. There should be absolutely no tolerance for bullying. The young girl was not in any danger and I find children are not being punished accordingly. Why did the school take away discipline of wrong behaviours? Why have parents stopped holding their children responsible? We need to show our youth that life will not allow for these actions and that not everyone will take it.
