I’ll admit that I was not interested when my office offered a Bring Your Child To Work Day. I’ve been on the other end (organizational side) of this day in the past, and recall trying to set up events for the little ones to occupy the day.
But this time it was different. The local team put in some parameters: children had to be 6th, 7th, or 8th graders; they attend actual meetings with you; and there is designated time apart from you to do community work.
Yet, I was still uncertain, because I kept thinking, “I’ve got so much work to do. How do I make the time?” Then it hit me. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for both me and my daughter.
