As a kid I was so excited to run home and show my mom exactly what we did in school, I couldn’t imagine what it would have been like to have to compete with a Cell phone for her attention.
Juliana Farris was picking up her children at a day care in Houston, TX, when she spotted a new sign welcoming her at the door.
Juliana took a photo of the sign on Facebook last Friday. It has now been shared more than one million times.
The sign read:
You are picking up your child!
GET OFF YOUR CELLPHONE!!!
Your child is happy to see you! Are you not happy to see your child?
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
She said she has not seen anyone on their phones since the sign went up.
“I think (the message) definitely resonates with people,” she said. “And it’s not just at the day care, it’s anywhere.”
Today’s high five goes to the person that made this sign!
