Ohio dad makes daughter walk to school over bullying claims (ABC)

A video has gone viral, showing a 10 year-old-girl who was forced by her dad to walk 5 miles to school in 36 degree weather.

Matt Cox says he was punishing his daughter for bullying another student.

Cox says it was the second time his daughter had been reported for bullying, and he was determined to make it clear that this bad behavior HAS consequences.

"I know a lot of parents are not going to agree with this, and that's alright." Cox says, "I am doing what I think is right to teach my daughter a lesson to stop bullying."

The video has generated more than 60 thousand comments, some saying the dad is doing the right thing; others saying the dad is going too far.

Cox says he needed to make a point.
