Even those of you who aren’t fans of social media will agree that this is a pretty good use of Facebook. Alabama mother, Kyesha Smith Wood learned that her teenage daughters behaved pretty badly at a showing of Cinderella.
The girls were so loud that a woman in the audience reprimanded them. The girls were disrespectful and didn’t listen. After the show the woman approached the girls and explained that her husband had been let go from his job and that it was the last movie she’d be able to see for some time and that they had ruined the experience.
The teens found themselves in big trouble at home after their teenage brother told their parents about what happened. The angry mom posted this message on community news Facebook page hoping to track down the woman.
She and her husband had the girls write a letter of apology they wanted to deliver to the woman. The parents were also going to make the girls pay for another movie and snacks for the woman and her family out of their allowance.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office picked up the story and posted it on their Facebook page, hoping to help track the woman down.
The Sheriff’s office later posted that the Mom had successfully tracked down the woman she was looking for.
The photo of that Mom’s post drew 246,290 like and 50,000 shares. Commenters heaped praise on the parents for teaching the girls a valuable lesson about good behavior.
The woman in the theater told a local newspaper that she was touched that the parents cared about the way their children behaved in a time when many parents prefer to make excuses.
