The picture contains the words:
"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!!"
Millions have viewed this simple yet powerful sign at the day care. It is now serving as a wake up call to all parents who are too occupied by their smartphones to provide more quality time with their children.
