This Mom's Apology For Her Kids Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity
Parents have to apologize for their children's behavior all the time -- usually, it's not particularly newsworthy.
Kyesha Smith Wood took to Facebook earlier this week in search of the woman who reprimanded her disruptive teen daughters at the movie theater.
The woman told the girls that her husband had recently been laid off and that night would be the last time she'd be able to see a movie with her daughter; the chatty teens ruined it for her.
Wood, humiliated, wrote a lengthy note on Facebook, apologizing for her daughters' embarrassing behavior.
This rude, disrespectful, and awful behavior is unacceptable, and they owe you an apology.
Wood also offered to pay for the woman's next trip to the movies out of the teens' allowances.
The note quickly went viral -- even spreading to the sheriff's office -- in their hometown of Birmingham, AL, and miraculously, Wood found the woman, later identified as Rebecca Boyd.
Boyd commented on the sheriff's office post, saying Wood's heartfelt apology “brought me to tears” and proved there are “still good people in this world.”
I have no hard feelings towards them and I am proud of their parents.
The women's story was recently featured on ABC News. According to the reports, the publicity was dually beneficial for Boyd: It resulted in several job offers for her recently laid-off husband.
Let this story serve as a reminder that being a good person always pays off -- and that your actions, good or bad, always affect others.
