Mom uses Facebook to track down and apologize to a family her ‘obnoxious’ daughters were rude to at a movie theater screening of Cinderella

This is refreshing and inspiring. Kyesha did exactly the right thing – the thing that all parents should do. Kyesha and her husband are forcing their daughters, after being rude to a woman and her daughter at the movies, to write letters of apology and pay out of their allowance for the mom and daughter to go to the movies to make amends. It’s also impressive that because of the Facebook attention, the woman’s husband is being offered jobs so he is no longer unemployed. What a wonderful outcome – all because a mom did the right thing.

Kyesha Smith Wood (pictured with her husband Damond) called out her ‘disprectful’
children on Facebook after she found out they were rude to a mother who was watching Cinderella
with her daughter.

From the Daily Mail:

When Kyesha Smith Wood dropped her daughters off at a Cinderella screening, she trusted they would be on their best behavior.

But when they returned, her 16-year-old son admitted his sisters had been rude and obnoxious to a mother inside the theater.

He explained how the woman approached the girls at the end of the screening in Bessemer, Alabama, and told them her husband had just been laid off and it was the last time she would be taking her daughter to the movies for a while – and they had ruined it.

A devastated Wood tried to track down the woman, by sending out an apology on Facebook and offered to pay for her next trip out of her children’s allowance.

She wrote this lengthy Facebook post in a bid to track the mother down, and it
was subsequently shared thousands of times.

The post was shared by thousands of people, prompting the mother in question, Rebecca Boyd, to write her a message.

Since the message was uploaded, her husband has received job offers and others have offered to fund the next visit.

Wood told she was ‘devastated and ashamed’ after learning of the way her girls behaved after Boy tried to correct their behavior.

So she took to social media in a bid to track her down.

The lengthy Facebook post read: ‘This is a long shot, but I’m looking for a woman that was at Tannehill Premier tonight seeing Cinderella at 7pm. I dropped my teenage daughter, step daughter, and son off at the movie.

‘My son later told me, much to my humiliation and embarrassment, that my girls were rude and obnoxious during the movie. The woman I’m looking for addressed them and asked them to be quiet and they were disrespectful.

‘After the movie she approached my girls and told them that her husband had been laid off and this was the last movie she would be able to take her daughter to for a while and my girls ruined that for her. If you are this woman, please message me.

‘I can assure you that these girls are being strongly dealt with and appropriately punished. This rude, disrespectful, and awful behavior is unacceptable and they owe you an apology.

‘My husband and I are having them write your apology letter tonight and we would like to pay for your next movie and snacks out of their allowance. Please message me if this is you. I apologize profusely for their disrespect.’

After seeing the post, Boyd said: ‘I was touched that she cared how her kids behaved. You don’t see that a lot these days.

Despite all the attention Wood insists the ‘real hero’ in the situation is Boyd, who she calls a ‘great mom.’

Boyd added: ‘[I’ve learned] that as parents we need to support each other. The girls are not bad, they made bad choices.

‘I am overwhelmed by all the love and support! This is something my daughter Ashley and I will never forget.’

I bet Kyesha and Damond are wondering where their daughters learned to act so rudely. Obviously, it was not at home, so the next stop will be their school. I know I would be looking long and hard about a different learning environment. Their daughters have learned an invaluable lesson on right and wrong here. The mother who confronted them has been gracious in her own right. Both of these families are good people. It gives you hope for everyone else. Seeing this made my day.
