Is your child succeeding in his Zoom classes? One disillusioned parent has created a petition to switch classes to phone only. What do you think?

Ask your child what he learned today.
He probably won’t know.
Parents are getting sick of of their children being stuck to a screen for so long every day, they see it really affecting the child, in his patience and increasing his edginess.
Besides for all the negative things on the internet etc, there are many other negative things that are being exposed to a child just through being on zoom…
Many parents want to put this zoom ‘school’ business to a end and just do it by a simple phone. This will help the child’s focus mental skills, social skills and enhance his learning and keeping her away from any harm. While other parents might not agree with this for the simple fact that they don’t know what is happening with their children, it’s not worth to wait till they realize!
The zoom app is a great tool, but we need to realize that it’s not for everyone, a child between grades 1-7 does not function in front of a screen like a adult, you can filter his entire device and only allow zoom, but at the end of the day he will be distracted the entire class swiping through the pages of zoom or looking at the names of the participants etc, and he won’t get bored of it even after a month!
Please give us your support and sign the petition so our schools will realize the importance and change class by phone, giving the “option” to use phone is not a solution because the children will feel excluded from their class.
Is your child getting more edgy, impatient an addicted to screens?
Is he davening like he did in school word for word out loud? Or at least the way he did that on a regular day?
Is the gain your child is getting from zoom school worth the damage being done to him?
I personally think the best way for a child to be successful in school in the current situation is by phone (not a smartphone), it’s simple and not too many features so the child can stay focused!
If you still think that your child is doing amazing on zoom, you either don’t know what’s happening with your child, or your child is really special.
Please sign the petition here.
