It was posted two years ago, but the sign put up by a daycare center still sparks debate up to this day. The sign supposedly tells parents to put their phones down and make their children a priority.

Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz posted a picture of the sign on her Facebook account after she saw it while picking up her daughter at a daycare in Texas.

The sign was placed on the door, and while some may say the message was rude, it definitely got the message across for Mazurkewicz.

She agreed to every word on the sign, but other parents were reportedly upset over it.

Here is what the sign

said

, “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!!” the sign continued.

More and more people reacted to the post. Some were all for it, but some were very upset over the message of the sign.

For Mazurkewicz, she wasn’t upset, and she understood why the daycare’s staff put up the sign. After reading it, she even realized that she was holding her phone at the time.

Speaking with CNN, she said, “I was a bit shocked, but I didn’t feel any negativity towards the daycare. I know that the staff has the best interests of the children in mind, even to the point where they are willing to offend the parent.”

Parents who disagreed with the sign claimed that they could have been doing something important or handling an emergency situation. They insisted that the daycare should not interfere with the parents’ business.

In another viral story, a mother took to Facebook to share the lesson she taught her child by using toothpaste as an instrument to get her point across.

Supposedly, it was a lesson about being aware of the words coming out of our mouths. Once you said it, it’s out in the open, and you can never take it back.
