Every parent has their own way of getting things done. Parents do what they think is best for their children, regardless of what others think. And unfortunately, other people certainly do have an opinion about what kind of parent you are.
Off The Bus
The young girl had been kicked off of the bus before, but this was the first time she got suspended from riding the school bus again. Considering her family had a car, the little girl wasn't worried about the suspension. “Daddy, You’re gonna have to take me to school next week," she told her father, but she wasn't expecting the reaction he gave her.
The Rules Of The House
10-year-old Kirsten from Ohio had been kicked off the bus for bullying another child for the second time. But her father Matt Cox wasn't having it this time. "Let me make this extremely clear, bullying is unacceptable, especially in my household,” he explained, and he had a plan up his sleeve to show his daughter that he meant what he said.

Bullying others can cause an incredible amount of damage to the psyche of young children. Their days become consumed with tears, embarrassment, and depression. Sadly, many parents of bullies don't do anything to teach their children that it's not okay to make other people's lives miserable. Matt wasn't about to let this slide.
Matt believes that children these days are just given things, instead of earning them, which causes them to become extremely entitled. In Matt's eyes, getting kicked off of the bus for bullying does not earn you a chauffeured car drive to school each morning. His daughter was more than capable of walking and that's exactly what she was going to do.
