Recently, it has become a trend to use social media to shame your kids as some form of punishment. Most of the time, the “shaming as punishment” doesn’t seem like the best idea… almost like parents bullying their kids. And if there is one thing we shouldn’t be promoting or idealizing for our kids, it’s bullying and cyberbullying.
But when Kyesha Smith posted to her Facebook about an incident with her daughters, she showed the internet how it really should be done:
What an amazing mother. She didn’t use Facebook to shame her kids, really. Instead she used it to right what she clearly felt was a grievous wrong on the part of her girls by making contact with the injured party.
The best part of the story is that after the post received more than 40,000 shares, Rebecca Boyd, the mother from the movie theatre, actually got wind of it.
“After I read it, I was touched that she cared how her kids behaved,” Boyd told Albama.com. “You don’t see that a lot these days.”
These kinds of stories really help to restore your faith in humanity!
