This daycare has taken a stance on cell phone usage in their facility and parents have been sharing it all over Facebook. With over a million shares, parents each have their own opinion on whether this daycare was out of line commenting on this issue or if it is a fair assessment.
The sign is a notice for parents to get off their phones when they are picking up their kids. There are thousands of people arguing in the comments, some agreeing with the sign and others claiming that it is unfair.
This is the controversial sign posted on the door:
“You are picking up your child! GET OFF YOUR PHONE!!!! Your child is happy to see you! Are you 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!!”
What do you think of the message in the note? Many people have agreed with the sentiment.
While the post has gotten a lot of positive attention, many people are offended by the suggestion that parents should be judged by others.
So what do you think? Did the daycare have the right to tell parents to get off their phones, or should they mind their own business unless they see signs of neglect?
