Last Thursday was the official Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day 2012. According to their website:
Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Day has inspired a future generation of girls and boys by helping bring them into the workplace to explore the many life choices they have.
Some of my friends work for Fortune 500-type companies that rolled out the red carpet for kids and hosted seminars and pizza lunches. My son Will, 8, went to work with my husband, who works in sporting goods.
There were no seminars. No lunches.
Will was put to work packing orders. That’s right, child labor is alive and well!
Don’t be too worried about him, though. I *think* he had some fun:
Uh, looks like Will was inspired (!) and empowered to explore the many life choices he has!
I should mention that Will had the option of going to work with me that day and didn’t. On Thursdays, I’m a stay-at-home mom. I took the cat to the vet, my 5-year-old to swim lessons and later to choir, cleaned 2 bathrooms, did laundry, cooked dinner, etc. He could have learned a lot, I tell you.
Did you take your son or daughter to work?
