What benefits are reaped from "Take Your Child to Work" Day?
The company I worked for used to encourage a parent to bring their school-aged child to work on this day. While I don’t have one, I still participated in a program our dept. developed for the children that were signed up.
As a co-worker, I enjoyed giving these children an insight on what their parent did and how their role was important to the success of the company. What I never found out was how beneficial it was to these children.
If you attended one, or your child did, was it a waste of time? If you, or the child, found it beneficial, can you describe how?
