What do you think ? Fair ? Given the circumstances ?
An Ohio father made his daughter walk to school for a few days as a punishment after she'd been banned from using the bus due to her bullying another student.

I think it's fair.

I would have done the same thing. And followed her from a safe distance.

[@10109,SweetMae] That's just what he did !
Let her walk the five miles to school with dad in the car following just behind.

[@448576,Picklebobble2] Good for him! Maybe she won't bully anyone again.

More than fair. I made my daughter (12) walk two days when she consistently missed the bus and I had to drive her. Country road, I followed her in the car.
That’s absolutely fair. If she can’t ride the bus without bothering other kids, she doesn’t deserve the chance to ride. Of course, I’d also want to know [b]why[/b] she feels the need to be a bully, because it’s unlikely that [b]that[/b] stops once she gets to school. 😒

[@328496,bijouxbroussard] My point is, if she [b]is[/b] bullying other kids, you can [b]see[/b] where she gets it from.
[@448576,Picklebobble2] I don’t see being held responsible for one’s actions as being bullied. And I was actually bullied as a child by other kids. Having to walk to school, rather than take the bus—poor thing. I also saw folks who [b]really[/b] bullied and humiliated their children—they came down to school and beat their kids during recess, or allowed the nuns to paddle them—sometimes in front of class. That’s the sort of thing that I could see actually scarring someone for life.

[@328496,bijouxbroussard] Well that's Catholic education. An 'acceptable form of child abuse'.
Don't think i've met a Catholic educated person yet who doesn't carry the scars of that.

Yet the clamour from those abused; their parents; Board of education officials; the police; childcare advocates; THE LAW IN GENERAL, has been noticeably absent for the last 100 years !

I don't know much about it, but from what you have described it sounds like a reasonable punishment to me.
SmartKat · 51-55, F
That sounds fair enough. There needs to be a consequence for bullying.

Firstly I hope he talked it through with her and that the punishment was explained fully, rather than just sanctioned upon her.
Secondly, this is private family business and should have been kept from the press.
