Mr Cox added that many children feel entitled to privileges like being taken to school in the morning by auto or bus.
"This type of punishment is short-term and will not address the culture in the school or on the bus that is lending itself to bullying".
"All of that is a privilege and should be treated as such".
A video of a 10-year-old girl forced by her father to walk five miles to school as punishment for allegedly bullying a schoolmate has gone viral and triggered a debate about parenting styles.
In the video, you see his daughter walking along the side of the road.
Mr Cox published the video later that day, and since then it has been watched over 16 million times and shared on the social media platform almost 350,000 times.
As it turned out, many people did agree with Mr Cox's method, said an ABC News report.
"You teach your daughter to bully", one follower said. He also told her that she wouldn't be walking if she'd been nice to the other student, instead of bullying her. Presumably she was never out in the cold for more than an hour or so at a time. Follow Yahoo Lifestyle on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. "Are you happy with the amount of likes your video received for public disciplinary action?"
He believes his daughter learned her lesson about bullying and will now appreciate the bus ride to school. "Hats off to you Sir".
"As the grandparent of an autistic boy who has been the victim of neighbourhood bullies, I applaud you!"
"I see nothing wrong with this", says another.

The father posted a video to his Facebook page on Monday (Dec 3) showing his daughter trudging along the roadside as he followed behind her in his vehicle.
"Mr Cox added: "[She] seems to have a new outlook on bullying as well as a new appreciation for some of the simple things in life she used to take for granted".
