With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, I’m asking all children, young or grown, to put away their cell phones when they take their moms out to dinner.

Mothers would really love to have their children’s full attention while sharing a meal with them on her special day.

If I were lucky enough to still have my dear mother, I would not be chatting or texting on my phone.

All children should be considerate and respectful and leave their phones turned off and tucked away at least for this one day. She’ll love you for it.
