When Matt Cox's daughter got suspended from riding the school bus for bullying-for the second time this school year-the OH father made a decision to take drastic action.

A U.S. father's decision to make his 10-year-old daughter walk kilometres to school over three days as punishment for bullying is causing controversy among parents online.

"I know a lot of you parents are not going to agree with this and that's alright", Cox can be heard saying during the video, which runs almost two minutes.

Cox's clip quickly went viral, racking up more than 16 million views and over 67,000 comments, many from social media users who seemed to be divided on whether the punishment was fair or cruel.

On Monday, Cox shared a video on Facebook of his daughter walking along a road wearing her backpack.

The five-mile walk to school was broken up over Kirsten's three-day suspension. "As you can see this morning, she is learning otherwise".

"Seriously dad your (sic) the one who is a bully.... that is too far for a young child to walk and also Dad your (sic) a moron for showing the video and putting it on YouTube", reads another.

According to U.S. media outlet WTVG, Cox broke Kirsten's eight kilometre walk up over the three days she was suspended from the bus. Matt Cox wanted to teach the girl a lesson after she was kicked off the school bus for three days for bullying another student.

"I'm not going to be another parent that's just going to brush things under the rug", he said.

"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", he continued.

Matt hopes that children and parents alike start to take the threat of bullying more seriously.

"Humiliate her by putting her on Facebook being punished".

"This is my small way of trying to stop it in my household", Cox told WTVG. "Great idea", a comment reads.

He said: "Parents need to hold their kids accountable".
