‘Tell me about an invention you don’t like. Why?
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 habet.
I hate my mom’s phone and I wish she never had one. That is an invention I don’t like.’
At the bottom of the assignment the student included a drawing of a cell phone with a big ‘X’ drawn over it and a sad face staring at it and saying ‘I hate it’.
Jen Adams Beason, the student’s teacher, posted a photo of the assignment on Facebook.
Our kids and people around us shouldn’t suffer the consequences of our fear of missing out.
Besides there is no reason to fear missing out because we are not missing out on anything that truly matters.
What’s trending is those close and around us, not what’s on an app.
