A teacher has shared a heartbreaking note one of her students wrote about her mum's phone usage.
The teacher shared the note on Facebook where it has since gone viral.
"I had my 2nd graders write about an invention that they wish had never been created." her post began.
"Out of 21 students, 4 of them wrote about this topic #getoffyourphone #listentoyourkids"
The daughter went on to write about how she wished the cellphone had never been invented...
"If I had to tell you what invention I don't like I would say that I don't like the phone."
"I don't like the phone because my parent are on their phone every day. A phone is sometimes a really bad habit. I hate my mom's phone and I wish she never had one. That is an invention I don't like."
Many have seen the post as a good reminder that sometimes it pays to look up from your phone and pay more attention to what is happening around you in the real world.
