A daycare in Texas feels so passionately about parents' cellphone use while picking up their kids that they made a sign about it, utilizing ALL CAPS, underlines, and exclamation points!!!!!! The emphatic sign was photographed by a mom named Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz, who supported the message and posted it to Facebook (on her phone, presumably, but we'll let this one slide).
It quickly went viral:
The sign reads:
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?? 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!!
Clearly the message has resonated with people, because since Friday the post has been shared over a million times and received thousands of comments.
Some people are way on board:
Others got defensive:
Whichever side you are on this divisive issue, I hope you enjoyed reading this article but hopefully not on your phone while picking up your kid at DAY CARE, OK, PARENTS??? It is appalling!!!
Sidenote: Typing like this is very satisfying I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT if you have an IMPORTANT POINT to make!!!!
