Second Graders Wish Their Parents’ Phones Weren’t Invented Because They Are on Them ‘Every Day’

Second graders at a Louisiana school wish their parents would get off their phones.

Elementary school teacher Jen Beason said four of her students told her they wished phones were never invented after giving the class a writing prompt.

“I don’t like the phone because my [parents] are on their phone every day … I hate my mom’s phone and I wish she never had one,” one student wrote in a photo posted to Beason’s Facebook page that has since been turned to private.

The post was shared more than 261,000 times — parents expressed guilt, and fellow teachers echoed similar conversations they’ve had in their classrooms.

“We had a class discussion about Facebook and every single one of the students said their parents spend more time on FB then they do talking to their child. It was very eye opening for me,” Abbey Fauntleroy commented.
