Entrepreneur – Take Your Children to Work


Teach your children to appreciate your business by taking them to work with you.  For many entrepreneurs, work takes up a large portion of their waking hours.  Entrepreneurs with children often have to explain to their children why they are working instead of playing with their children or attending the children’s events. For entrepreneurs who must spend a lot of time at work and miss many family events it is a good idea to take your children to work from time to time.

Often the work that parents do is a mystery to their children. The children may understand on an intellectual level what it is that their parents do, but that is very different from understanding why doing that work takes so many hours. When you bring your child to work and she is able to spend the day watching what you do, how you do it and all the people involved in the process it is often an eye-opening experience for them.  It is one thing to hear how hard your job is and how much you need to do at work each day, it is a different thing altogether for them to see you at work putting out fires, doing a million tasks and missing lunch due to the workload.

  • I remember take your daughter to school day when I was young. I loved it! I got to have a fun experience with my mom.

  • It's great for kids to experience what their parents do, and to start learning about different jobs.

  • I think this is a great idea. Kids can learn so much.

  • I think it's a great thing to take your children to work. this way they get to see what you do and learn from how hard you work.

  • I think it's a great idea to take your kids to work with you once in awhile no matter what you do. It does give them an awareness and appreciation of what Mom or Dad does while "at work".

  • I have friends that own their business and I love it when I see their children at their shop, etc. As a blogger I get to take children to events and share with them what I do. It's so important.
