After his son was kicked off the school bus for three days for bullying, a father in Virginia came up with an alternative way for him to get to school.
As punishment, Bryan Thornhill made his son run to school. In a Facebook video posted on Thursday, Thornhill streams his son running with his backpack on in the rain, with Thornhill riding in a car behind him. In the Facebook video, Thornhill explained why he chose this form of punishment and gave "tough love" parenting advice to others. (Note: The video contains language that some may find objectionable.)
The video has generated millions of views and has sparked a mix of praise and criticism.
Thornhill said in the video that his son's behavior has improved since the punishment.
