Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Taking your children to work may be unthinkable for most of the year, but on Bring Your Son Or Daughter To Work Day the doors are open in most work places and the kids get to see what it is that keeps Mom or Dad busy all day.

The national date for the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work program is always on the fourth Thursday in April. The 2009 program will be on Thursday, April 23rd.

Why bring your children to work with you on a school day?

Nadine O'Reilly, M.A., Certified school psychologist explains, “With more and more mothers working outside the home, we are finding that the amount of quality time they have to spend with their children is less and less. ‘Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day’ is a vital initiative because it promotes parent-child bonding on yet another level. By affording our children the opportunity to experience our careers, we are providing them with an immediate educational experience, as well as the possibility of fostering long-term goals and motivation...”

The day originally was just for daughters. It was organized by the Ms. Foundation for Women in 1993. Opening the doors to the world of work and to the endless possibilities available outside the home seemed like a good idea.

After a few years, the benefits were so clear that boys were included in the mix. The day was renamed “Take Our Daughters And Son To Work Day” in 2003. As it is organized now, this day gives all kids from eight to eighteen, a chance to experience the workplace first hand ... sort of a one day internship with mom or dad.
