2nd graders at a Louisiana school said they wished cellphones were never invented.

In a Facebook post, 2nd grade teacher Jen Beason posted a picture of a student’s assignment where the class was asked to write about an invention they didn’t like.

In the photo shared via THV11, the student wrote, “phones are sometimes a really bad habit, I hate my mom’s phone and I wish she never had one.”

Beason stated that 4 of her students wrote about phones. She ended the post by saying #getoffyourphone #listentoyourkids.  

The photo was shared more than 260,000 times before Beason removed the post.
