A sign posted by a day care in Texas has gone viral recently. Written on it is a simple but important reminder for parents picking up their children – get off your phone!
Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz went to pick her kids up at the day care when she saw the new sign greeting parents at the door. She took a photo of it so she could share the wonderful reminder with her friends.
The sign said:
“You are picking up your child! GET OFF YOUR PHONE!!!! Your child is happy to see you! Are you not happy to see your child??”
It further elaborated:
“We have seen children trying to hand their parents their work they completed and the parent is on the phone. We have heard a child say ‘Mommy, mommy, mommy…” and the parent is paying more attention to their phone than their own child. It is appalling. Get off your phone!!”
Speaking with Fox News, Farris said she totally agrees with the message. She shared:
“I thought it was awesome,” she said on Wednesday. “I thought it was funny and it definitely made me (think).”
Farris later uploaded the photo on Facebook and it has since been shared thousands of times. The sign even prompted discussions among parents on social media.
“I think (the message) definitely resonates with people. And it’s not just at the day care, it’s anywhere.”
Some agreed with the sign, with one Maxime Singleton Guy commenting:
“This needs to be posted everywhere this is a child trying to talk to their parents.”
Others, however, had different opinions.
For example, Janise Warren said:
“Sorry, I’d remove my child from that school. They are right, of course, but that sign is not how you talk to another person, especially one paying your salary. I’m sure it’s true to be heard by many parents, but these are the people I would have entrusted to help teach my kids respect and they were just as disrespectful with that sign as the parents were with the phone. Two wrongs don’t make a right.”
Meanwhile, Kirstin Ramsey wrote:
“Some people have to work on their phones. I have my personal cell and a work cell. Just because I clock out of the office doesn’t mean I’m finished with my work day. There have been plenty of times I’ve picked up my daughter and been on a work call.”
Well what do you think about this sign, folks? Do you agree or disagree with its message? Let us know by dropping a comment below!
