This is proof that there are still parents out there who are taking the time to teach their children the importance of respect, like Alabama mother Kyesha Smith Wood.

Kyesha’s daughter and stepdaughter were at the movies on Friday night, but they were being incredibly rude and loud. So, Rebecca Boyd, who was there with her 12-year-old daughter Ashley, turned around and asked them to be quiet. They continued kicking her seat and being loud.

Following the film, Boyd sent Ashley to the car and confronted the teens. She said:

“I told them they needed to realize that their behavior affects others and they never know what other people around them are going through. For instance my husband was just laid off from his job and this would be the last movie I could take my daughter to for awhile, and they had ruined that.”

Once Kyesha’s girls got home, their little brother told their mom everything that had happened, and she took to Facebook to find the other mother and make this right. Her post said:

“This is a long shot, but I’m looking for a woman that was at Tannehill Premier tonight seeing Cinderella at 7 pm… If you are this woman, please message me. I can assure you that these girls are being strongly dealt with and appropriately punished. This rude, disrespectful, and awful behavior is unacceptable and they owe you an apology. My husband and I are having them write your apology letter tonight and we would like to pay for your next movie and snacks out of their allowance. Please message me if this is you. I apologize profusely for their disrespect.”

The message eventually made it to Boyd, and the two moms connected and hit it off. Boyd assured Kyesha that she never questioned the girls’ parenting, just knew “that kids will be kids.” She was actually glad that Kyesha wasn’t mad she had approached her children.

Throughout this whole thing, both mothers acknowledged that “it takes a village” to raise a child. Boyd thanked Kyesha for how she handled it, and Kyesha thanked Boyd for calling her daughters out.

Hopefully they’ve learned their lesson and we can all learn to be a little more respectful since you never know what’s going on in another person’s life.
