When Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz stopped by a local daycare, she noticed something different: a new sign with an important message to all parents.

"You are picking up your child! GET OFF YOUR PHONE!" the message in front of the Texas daycare read. "Your child is happy to see you! Are you happy to see your child??" The bold note explained that staff members have seen proud kids trying to show their parents the work that they completed during the day as moms and dads continue to focus their attention on their devices.

Instead of ignoring the issue, the daycare workers are bringing it to the attention of all parents before they even walk through the door. "We have heard a child say, "'Mommy, Mommy, Mommy . . . ' and the parent is paying more attention to their phone than their own child," the note added. "It is appalling."

Hopefully this sign reminds parents of the importance of connecting more with their little ones and less with their phones.
