Today is take your kids to work day in our area. My son asked if he could work with me - my office is in my home....thought he could get in a little extra X-box and stuff like that. Not so much! We have appointments and projects that need completing. He is about to find out how this 'work-from-home' gig really goes.
I remember this day from when I was in corporate world. Kids would come into the store or the office and work side by side with their parents or sponsors. We would set up a tour, a Q&A session and more - they would write an essay on the day and explain what they learned. My son's school is asking for nothing in return - so I guess this is just a day off for the Grade 9 teachers....Why send kids to work, to discover the opportunities that are out in the world and ask for nothing in return. Is this a learning experience or what?
Those of you who know me by now, know that this will be a learning experience. We'll talk, we'll dialogue, ask questions and of course, I will ask him for the 3 things he learned today. I will post the learnings later for you to see.
Have a great day! I know we will.
