but it does! I was talking to a preschool teacher the other day and she said it drives her crazy when the parents are on the phone when they pick up their kids. It doesn't matter what age the kids are. The kids are gone all day and need to be greated with a smile, a hug and our undivided attention. We aren't in the day and age when we have warm baked goodies for them when they get home but our full attention is what they really need!!
It is something so simple but means so much to the kids!!
Are you guilty of this? Can you make an effort to hang up the phone and spend time after school giving your child undivided attention?

I am SOOOO glad you posted this! You are 100% right! I just dropped my Son off at Preschool and there are two flights of stairs to walk up and a Mom was walking up in front of her 3 year old Daughter and Texting!! The poor little thing was climbing up the stairs herself and I was mortified!! I also recently went on the School field trip and a few of the Moms were texting the whole time!! WTH!!! Can everyone just STOP texting & talking on the phone to enjoy a little special time with their child?? I have to say that People are so wrapped up in themselves today that it is just atrocious!! I try to appreciate every minute I have with my Son since time passes by so fast. I want him to have wonderful memories from his childhood not memories of me ignoring him.
