When Matt Cox's daughter was suspended from her school bus for three days, the USA father declined to drive her himself and ordered her to make her way in by foot, following behind in his vehicle from where he filmed her.

Sonia Kruger talks to Deb Knight about why she is luckier than most mums.

"I know a lot of you parents are not going to agree with this, but that is alright because I am doing what I feel is right to teach my daughter a lesson to stop her from bullying", Cox said in the video.

"A lot of children today feel that the things their parents do for them is a right and not a privilege, such as parents taking their children to school in the morning or even bus rides to school in the morning".

School buses are pictured on January 15, 2013 in New York City.

"All of that is a privilege and should be treated as such".

The footage shows Kirsten walking on the side of the road as her father follows behind in his vehicle.

"I just hope that through the video being shared kids can take a look and read some of the comments and tutorials on the post and see just how much words can hurt and cut deep and can have lasting effects on those involved sometimes in the most terrible cases life-ending effects", Cox said.

The video of the father's punishment has garnered over 15m views on Facebook and thousands of comments.

"Ok but wait, is she bullying other kids or did you stop to hear her explanation?" said another. In an update to the original post, he assures the world that his daughter lost no limb to the cold and that, by the end of the walk, she had calmed down enough to understand where she'd been wrong.
