An Alabama mom was so horrified by her children's recent behavior at a movie theater that she resorted to Facebook to send a plea for forgiveness on her kids' behalf. The message has since gone viral, and the apology has been accepted.
Kyesha Smith Wood was furious when she found out that her daughter and step-daughter were "rude and obnoxious" to a woman who had asked them to hush up during a movie screening of "Cinderella," the Daily New Reports. It was Wood's 16-year-old son who spilled the beans on the teen girls.
"The woman I'm looking for addressed them and asked them to be quiet and they were disrespectful," Wood wrote in her Facebook post. "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."
One comment posted on Wood's original message reads, "If our youth had more good parenting like this, then the world would be a better place. U deserve the best parenting award of the month in my books."
The post eventually made its way to Rebecca Boyd, the woman whom Wood was seeking. The two spoke on the phone and were able to patch things up, according to the Yellow Hammer News.
"She's the most gracious and kind and forgiving woman and I'm humbled by that," Wood said after speaking to Boyd. Even better? Companies have reached out to Boyd's husband to help him find work, Yellow Hammer News reports.
