As much as I love going to the movies, I usually find myself attending a morning matinee for two reasons. One is because it’s a lot cheaper and 2nd is because most high school kids are in still in school and not in the movie theater being rude and obnoxious.
Kyesha Smith Wood of Alabama has 3 teenage kids and this past weekend she dropped them off at a local theater to see the new Cinderella movie. Later that night, she found out via her 16 year old son that her daughters were being “rude and obnoxious” during the movie and was disrespectful to a woman who asked them to keep it down and then approached them after the movie to tell them her husband had just been laid off and this was the last movie she would be able to take her daughter to for a while.
Woods was so upset with her children, she took to Facebook to try to find the women so she could make her children apologize.
“This rude, disrespectful, and awful behavior is unacceptable and they owe you an apology,” Wood wrote. “Please message me if this is you. I apologize profusely for their disrespect.”
The message quickly spread through social media sites and eventually found Rebecca Boyd who was touched by the parent’s letter and connected with Wood.
“[I’ve learned] that as parents we need to support each other,” Boyd said of the situation. “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.”
