Sign posted at Texas daycare makes internet rounds

You’ve probably heard a frustrated parent or two tell their kids to get off their phones. According to one Texas daycare, it’s not the kids who have the problem.

A sign posted at a daycare in Hockley has made its way around the internet after mother Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz posted a picture of it to her Facebook.

The sign instructs parents to “GET OFF YOUR PHONE!!!!” and asks parents, “Are you happy to see your child??” The sign says that daycare employees have seen instances where “the parent is paying more attention to their phone than their own child” and calls it “appalling.”

Of the sign, Mazurkewicz told ABC News that she was “surprised” the daycare “would be so bold,” but that she appreciated the move. She also said there is a divide in the types of comments the post is receiving, “Half the people are saying it’s not the day care’s business what paying customers do, and the other half are saying that it’s great they are looking after the children’s well-being.”

The post has been shared on Facebook nearly 10,o0o times and garnered more than a million comments.

What do you think? Is the sign out of line, or the kind of reminder busy parents need? Take our poll below:
