Day-care center to parents: ‘Get off your phone!!’
A Texas day-care center’s message to parents — “GET OFF YOUR PHONE!!” — has gone viral, reports Fox News.
Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz was picking up her children when she spotted the sign on the door:
“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 continued: “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!!”
Farris took a photo — with her phone — and posted it on Facebook. It’s been shared more than 1 million times.
“I think (the message) definitely resonates with people,” she told Fox News. “And it’s not just at the day care, it’s anywhere.”
