25. I made my daughter do the same thing

for a different reason. She was acting up on the bus. Jumping up and down, getting out of her seat, etc.. The 3rd time they suspend you for a day. The 2nd notice, I informed her that I would make her walk home from school, if it happened again. Apparently she did not believe me, she did it again. Once we got past the dangerous intersection I stopped the car and told her to get out and start walking. Don't forget your backpack. I drove behind her, just as this Dad did.

A woman coming from the other direction and asked my daughter if she needed help, she pointed to me. The lady stopped next to me to let me know she was just checking on her. I told her, yeah, she got kicked off the bus, she's learning her lesson. The lady chuckled and drove off.


She was never a problem on the bus again. Hopefully for his child, he will have the same result.


As for recording it and posting? that option wasn't available for me. I don't know if I would have or not. I can see why the Dad did. He did not expect it to go viral, as it did. Perhaps he was thinking of giving her a taste of her own medicine. I suppose he could have driven her home and spanked her, that surely would have cured her bullying problem.

As for my kid? At 28 years old she has a bachelor and Master's degree. Working on her 2nd Master's. Earns about 75,000 a year and has plans to get her PHD afterwards. Now I wonder how much further she would have gone in life if I hadn't made her walk home that day and take to heart that there are negative consequences for negative actions.
