Have you ever seen something like this?  I bet you have.

  1. Oh yes. Parents ignoring their children, making them second best to the all import Smart Phone. Taking a dog for a walk and never so much as looking at them as they focus on their phones. Sitting with friends in a restaurant with their eyes down and their thumbs on hyperdrive. At sporting events and glued to their phones. But the very worst is to see them ignoring their children. So folks, when you ask your child to do (or stop doing) something and they ignore you....where do you think they learned that? Hmmm?

    1. Students don't talk with each other-they sit together and text.

  5. I have seen it far too often and once, sadly, I saw a child slapped for daring to interrupt mummy, who wasn't on the phone, but simply chatting with a neighbour, in pre-mobile phone days.

  6. Hi Susan - just people on phones ... and I'm sure I've seen kids and parents having hassles with phones - adults setting bad examples. I had to tell someone in the cinema to get off their phone in the middle of a film ... makes me mad!!! They were 'kids' and had just been playing with their phone and not looking at the film - then after a while they got up and left ...

    cheers Hilary

  7. That's horrible. I've seen couples at restaurants and other places interacting with their phone and not each other which I find terribly sad...

  8. I haven't seen the sign, but I've seen what the sign is describing. Unfortunately, those that need the sign the most are the ones on their phones, ignoring things like signs...

  9. I haven't seen the sign. It's a shame parents have to be reminded to pay attention to their kids!

    1. Being torn between one's phone and one's child is a true sad state of being.

  10. Do these people even look up from their phones long enough to read a sign?

    1. They would run into the sign if they didn't.

  11. Dear Susan, like Inger, I wonder if these people with phones permanently attached to their hand and ear ever look up to see a sign or hear a child's voice. Peace.

  12. Grrrrrr. I have seen it too often, it annoys and saddens me.

    All the best Jan

  13. Yeah. It's really sad.

    The truth is that "social" networking and all this technology to keep us in touch just makes us less social, even with our own families.

  14. This is a really good idea that you have going on.
