Take Your Child to Work Day - from Home!

Woman and child working from home

Take Your Child to Work Day — April 28, 2022 — will no doubt look different for you and your child this year. Whether you’re still working from home or you’re back in the office but have COVID restrictions in place, how can you help your child feel involved in Take Your Child to Work Day?

As a parent, you are your child’s greatest inspiration. Take time to reflect on what work has looked like the past couple years, what your child learned about your career, and what they hope to do in their future. Ask your child, “What are you interested in?” or “What problem in the world do you want to solve?” Thought-provoking questions can lead to wonderfully rich conversations.

Pick out a few of the activities below to try together on April 28, and explain how the same skills are used by adults every day in their careers. We hope these activities inspire your child’s imagination about how they can contribute to the world — both now and in the future.
