GOOD NEWS Mom's Facebook Apology Goes Viral After Her Kids' Misbehavior at the Movies
When an Alabama mother learned that her teenage kids were loud and disruptive in a movie theater, she took to Facebook to apologize for their behavior and make amends in a post that has gone viral.
Kyesha Smith Wood, of Birmingham, Alabama, dropped off her teenage son, daughter and step-daughter at the movies Friday night to see a showing of the Disney film "Cinderella."
When Wood picked the kids up after, her son informed her that the girls were rude during the movie. He revealed that a woman had approached them after to let them know that, because her husband recently lost his job, this was the last movie her family would be seeing for a long time. The woman said that the girls' behavior had ruined the experience for them.
Wood hit the roof and issued a public Facebook apology:
When the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office shared the Facebook post, it went viral, getting thousands of shares.
Eventually, it reached Rebecca Boyd of Adger, Alabama, who responded that she was the woman from the theater.
Boyd reached out to Wood, and the mom is having the girls write personal notes of apology and contribute their allowance money to pay for the Boyd family’s next movie night.
"She's the most gracious, kind and forgiving woman. I am so humbled by that, and I've been telling people the real hero of the story is her," Wood said. "She took it upon herself to correct my girls and no one else around them did."
