A father in Virginia came up with an unusual punishment for his son who was kicked off the school bus for three days for being a “little bully.”
His punishment? Run the one mile to school in the rain while his dad followed him in his truck.
Bryan Thornhill of Roanoke, Virginia posted the video of his son running to school to Facebook, where it instantly went viral. As of today, the video has 26 million views.
“My son has finally gotten in trouble on the bus enough to where he actually got kicked off the bus for three days because he was being a little bully, which I do not tolerate,” he said.
Thornhill says that this punishment is “healthy” and that it is “old school simple parenting.”
“Ironically, since he’s been running to school this week, his behavior has been much better,” he continued. “His teachers have approved of his behavior this week.”
“It’s exercise,” he said. “Something a lot of people don’t think children should do anymore so you just stick them behind an Xbox for the rest of their lives.”
“We are going to make sure one way or another, his teachers are able to enjoy his company at school, he’s not disrupting his classmates and everything else,” he added.
Thornhill jokes that his son will either be fast or obedient, but “so far we’re working on fast.”
