A video of a nine-year-old girl crying to her mother about being bullied on the bus has gone viral, and a lot of parents are discussing the topic. 

Sarah Cymbaluk, who posted the video to Facebook, was frustrated her daughter was repeatedly bullied on the school bus, and "the school did nothing about it," reports CNN

In the video, Cymbaluk asks her daughter, "Tell me how it makes you feel," and her daughter responds, "It makes me feel sad and scared, and I don't like it."

The article discusses how Cymbaluk has received praise and criticism for posting the video from parents, educators and administrators. 

"Without knowing all the details of the case, what I can say is that I can understand a parent's frustration because I, as a parent, have moved my child from a school...so I know that you feel desperate," said Becki Cohn-Vargas, former principal, superintendent and teacher. Vargas transfered her daughter to another high school because of bullying. "You want to do something to help your child."
