Day Care Posts Sign Telling Parents to Get Off Their Phones Goes Viral

A day care in Houston has managed to become an internet sensation after posting a sign on its doors demanding that parents do one simple thing when picking up their children: Put down the cellphone.

The day care posted the sign because its staff was tired of seeing children being ignored by their parents, the U.K. Daily Mail reported.

“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!!” read a part of the sign.

Juliana Mazurkewicz, a parent, posted a photo of the sign on Facebook (ironically enough, a photo taken with her cell phone), and it instantly went viral, garnering over 1.2 million shares, KARE 11 reported.

“I think that it needed to be said, that it’s a good reminder to all of us. The day care is awesome, they are very loving and obviously have the best interest of the children in mind,” Mazurkewicz stated.

Fox News reported that not everyone agreed with the sign’s message. Some comments on the post were from parents claiming that they needed to be on the phone for “work,” and others didn’t like the tone of the message.

I’m pretty sure whatever “work” is being done by some of these parents can be put off for a few minutes so they could at least say hello to their own child and ask how the day was.

Given the strong wording of this sign, the workers at the day care have probably been watching parents ignore their children in favor of their phones for a long time and finally couldn’t sit back and watch it any longer.

This sign should be a reminder to all of us that even though we now have all of this technology surrounding us, there are still more important things in this world than our cell phones — like taking care of our kids.
