Take Your Children to Work So They Understand What You Do — 14 Comments

  1. I work at home so the kids are very much aware of what I do for a living.
    It’s me “going to school” that confuses them sometimes!!

  2. The military usually had a family day and I would take my kids in. They got to see a little of what goes on behind the scenes and I would teach a CPR class being a medic. They had lots of fun.

  3. My son sees me working every day! Sometimes I think he sees it too much! But I also think it has given him great skills! He’s such a young entrepreneur!

  4. You’re right about the confidential papers at work. Kids don’t have a filter a lot of times, and it’s your job to make sure confidential stays confidential. 🙂

  5. I work form home, so my kiddos know what i do. We visited my husband at work last year and he showed us all around and the kids were bored to tears and only wanted to see the cafeteria! Desks and computer lab are sort of boring

  6. I couldn’t agree more! I like to take my kids with me to events during setup so they can see what Mommy’s been preparing and working so hard to pull off for months before the event.

  7. I think its a great idea. Its important to teach children what jobs are like, and that money doesn’t grow on trees! 🙂

  8. My son knows what I do and wants no part of it. He says there is to much reading, writing and picture taking. However he does like the fact I get to use a computer all day.

  9. I am a sty at home mom that homeschools our kids. My husband’s job offers take you child to work day several times during the year, I think my boys would actually be bored if they went to his job but it’s definitely something to consider.

  10. I think it is great for both the kids and the parents. Maybe kids can really think about what they want to do when they grow up….or maybe not. It’s an eye opener anyway.

  11. This is a great idea. It’s so important for kids to understand what their parents do and to start thinking about their own futures.

  12. I have wonderful memories of going to work with both of my parents! My mom was a librarian and my dad was a geologist. For a while as a child I told people I wanted to be a “geology librarian” when I grew up! 🙂

  13. I think that is an awesome way for them to see what people do. I love this idea.

How do these ideas work in your world?
