Bryan Thornhill posted the video to Facebook in March 2018 of his son running to school in the rain while Thornhill drives behind after his son got kicked off the bus for bullying other kid.

Bryan Thornhill made his son run a mile to school while he trailed behind in his truck after he found out that his son was banned from riding the school bus because of his behavior.

In fact, his account is deactivated.

Bryan Thornhill said he decided his son Hayden needed to be disciplined after he was kicked off the bus for three days for being a bully.

His son says that running to school wasn't fun but that he got the punishment he deserved.

Mr Thornhill said his son had been better behaved since the punishment began and his teachers had noticed an improvement in class. Keeping up a running commentary throughout, he explained that the youngster had been caught bullying on the school bus, and was consequently suspended for three days. The dad in the video says, "This is a healthy way for a child to be punished because it's exercise". The Epoch Times reported that his video gained more than 1.6 million views and more than 37,000 shares. That video, too, is no longer available.

He continued: "So far I have given many new ideas to parents that they love". Thanks for taking a stand against bulling and teaching your children lessons.

"Way to go", one person wrote.

The videos received pushback, as well, before they were removed from Facebook. Insinuating that those parents and their children are probably out of shape. It was raining and the kid had to run a mile.

Mr Thornhill later uploaded another video of him running with his son and daughter, saying both kids wanted to run to school now.

Thornhill also noted the 10-year-old is an athlete and has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.

Bullying experts have questioned the style of discipline used in the video, and said there can be other ways to handle the situation.

"We've always joked he'll either be fast or obedient".

Bryan Thornhill said his technique is working.
