Controversial Sign Posted at Daycare Demands Parents “GET OFF YOUR PHONE!!!!”

While most parents who commented seem to agree with the message, saying things like “Amen” and “Hang  up and raise your child,” a few Facebook commenters were offended and had responses such as, “A lot of working parents have hectic schedules if they have other kids. So while I see the point, I also don’t think it’s fair to judge a parent on a brief encounter.”

While I generally agree that you should put the phone away when you are picking up your child after a long day away from each other, I do also understand that circumstances arise that need to be taken care of, whether personal or professional. But, I have to believe that for the daycare to post such a confrontational sign, it must really be a problem there.

What would you do if this sign was posted at your child’s daycare?
