Recently, a Facebook post, from a mom who insists that we all put our phones down when our children are around, has gone viral. She traded her phone for a pen and paper and tallied up her children’s glances in her direction.

Derek Dillard, Jill Dillard’s (nee Duggar) husband, posted a cute photo of himself and son Israel to his Instagram account, this weekend. The accompanying caption read “Babysitting this guy this morning”. Comments immediately began pouring in upset over the caption.
