As I was flipping through the Spirit magazine on Southwest, this page caught my attention!
uhmmm… am I the only one who thinks this is a problem? In the article it says that when TextPlus polled 1.200 students between the ages of 13-17, roughly two-thirds had received texts from their parents during class… and 74% of the students didn’t think it was wrong to text during class… Am I just being old school? As if there aren’t enough distractions in the life of a teenager during class, parents texting them is one of them? Give me a break!!! And how long before this practice trickles down to kids in elementary school… and how long before this becomes the norm during our church ministries? Today, I also read Dr. Jim Burn’s tweet: “Sign of the times… Dad: Why aren’t u texting bak? Son: I’m in class! Dad: Sorry, I’m bored & nun of my friends r on facebook.” Seriously????
I’m gonna say this on behalf of all the teachers out there.
PARENTS: PLEASE STOP DISTRACTING YOUR KIDS DURING CLASS! WORK OUT THE RIDE SITUATION AND AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES BEFORE YOU SEND YOUR KIDS TO SCHOOL OR THE NIGHT BEFORE!
