Daycare Note to Parents

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy.

This daycare note to parents has told them that they need to get off the phone when picking their children up by posting a very blunt message on the door of the daycare center.

Here is what the sign on the front of the door says:

“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!!”

Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz saw the message posted on the door of her child’s daycare and post a picture of it on Facebook.

Some parents are outraged by this message and some completely agree with this. I’m sure Juliana didn’t realize how viral her post would be, but this definitely hits a nerve with a lot of parents on both sides.

Here is Juliana’s original post…

What are your thoughts about this? Do you agree with what this daycare owner posted on the daycare door? We would love to see your opinion on this and let everyone know what you think!

    It takes 10 mins to pick up your child give them full attention. Enjoy their excitement. Then once you do, and you are all home that kid will have had a nice time with you and move on to other things. Then you can be on the phone. Give your kid the time then phone.

  2. If you love your child you will read this note and assess to what extent it applies to you because it is a real problem. I read it and realized I am guilty of this behavior that I know is wrong but is also easy to get caught up in. If it doesn’t apply to you, good job! Carry on!

  3. This is amazing! I feel the exact same about being anywhere with your family. Family time is family time. Children grow so fast and parents are going to look up from their phone one day and wonder when their child got so big, why their child won’t hug them anymore, and will regret the time they could have spent with them when at that age, that is all they wanted. We have all become so disconnected with human relationships and are raising little people to become the same. Turn the phone off at the park and use the children as an excuse to be silly and okay. Turn it off at the restaurant so you can enjoy that time looking at your kids experience new foods. Just put it down and enjoy what you have right in front of you

  4. I agree with it.. If it’s not a 911 emergency then give your child the attention they want. It’s only a few minutes of your time while picking up your child. You could let your fingers rest and put your child ahead of that stupid phone. It’s showing your child that your Facebook is more important then they are when it’s there time for a half HR of the day and there excited to show you there work or tell you about your day.

    I am all for it it’s sick to see parents at restaurants and grocery stores on their phones. Completely ignoring their children.

    I think this Is a very smart thing. I applaud the person who did this… It is apalling to see parents on their phone and not paying attention to the children! I am definitely for it for it!

    The parents who are OUTRAGED are feeling guilty because it hit a nerve and it more than likely applies to them.

  8. I think this note needs to also be posted at restaurants! I’ve seen children completely ignored the entire meal while their parent/s are on their phones…take time to be a parent!
