    Well a little context first.

    The story is that apparently his 10 year old daughter was bullying someone on school bus, and got kicked off the bus for said bullying. And it wasn't the first time it happened.



    I bet this guy is going to have CPS on his ass before too long, which is stupid because it's not like he's beating her or putting her in danger.

    btw, the 5 miles he "made her walk" was spread over 3 days.

    5 miles feels a little excessive to me. I'd maybe drive her 4 and make her walk the last one.

    Edit: over 3 days? So, less than 2 miles a day. Never mind--that's perfectly fine. Good parenting.

    That dad is literally Hitler.

    Other parents would have just made her stay off Instagram for an hour a night.

    yeah, I had a little problem with the 5 mile thing. Usually you can walk about 2-3 miles an hour, so it'd be about 90+ minutes of walking.

    Then someone pointed out how it was spread over 3 days, and it's not nearly as bad. It kind of reminds me of those stories you'll see online of someone walking "7 miles" each morning to work/see sick wife in hospital, which seem far fetched.

    Don’t judge this bully and the cruel punishment she endured until you’ve walked 5 miles in her shoes. They could be crocs for all we know.

    Watching the video, it looks like the dad said "So this morning, my beautiful daughter will be walking 5 miles to school in 36-degree weather". Suggests to me that she actually had to do the 5 miles each day for three days. So, I'm going back to what I said initially--5 miles a day feels a bit excessive, but I wouldn't denounce someone for making that parenting choice.

    If it's 5 miles in one day, that's a bit much. Mostly due to the time it would take. Most elementary school probably start sometime between 8:30 and 9:00. Average adult walks about 20 minutes per mile (so probably a little slower for a kid). So let's say 30 minutes per mile.

    At 5 miles, that's between 100 and 150 minutes (or so HCP can understand, 1 hr 40 minutes and 2 hours 30 minutes).

    So he's going to "punish" his daughter by having her start walking to school at between 6 and 6:30 in the morning?

    Unless there’s like blisters or frostbite, 5 miles really ain’t shit for punishment. If she’s weak it’ll break her though I guess.

    Alternatively this would be a perfect opportunity to pull an Uncle Buck.

    Wow, a parent steps up to the plate and takes responsibility for his child (instead of expecting the bus driver, teachers or school administration to do his job for him) and people go nuts. This father is a hero, no ifs, ands or buts about it. Maybe if more parents held their kids accountable for bad behavior the world would be a better place (deliberately leaving out a White House inhabitant related....and relevant......comment. Not easy). And since when did walking to school (or anywhere else) for any length of time in 36 degree weather constitute cruel and unusual punishment?? If it truly is, then millions of kids from my generation grew up terribly abused. People just get more stupid with every passing day......

    It's because there are different camps of parents. Some parents are applauding him, I'm sure. Other parents think their little angels can do no wrong and are mortified.

    Props to the dad....many kids don't understand the word consequence or punishment anymore. Parents that baby their kids or let them act disrespectful on a regular basis are not doing them any favors. They will struggle latter on with authority and respecting others.
    I was flying back east on business one time and there were two kids in front of me that literally were beating on their mom and dad hitting them in the face, because they were asked to stay in their seats and quit hitting the people in front of them. The parents in their mid 30's are just not doing a thing to stop it or demand a change in their behavior.
    I raise a strong willed kid and its not easy but you have to control them with sternness and love through consistency.
    Kids need to learn there are consequence's and punishment for bad behavior really is a form of love.

    Plus this promotes good exercise and health. I swear to god people need to stop treating their children like delicate little flowers.

    If I've walked 5 miles in her shoes it means I'm 5 miles away from her and I have her shoes!

    Im all for free range parenting but with borders and rules offset by discipline when the kid screws up.

    I salute this father. Probably saved his little girl from turning into a total whore later in life.
