    It is good for children not to be in the dark about what their parents do, but taking them to work is not the only (or event he best) way for them to learn about. Stories around the dinner table about what we all did today has several advantages: 1) it can happen every day 2) We can spare them the boring parts (watching us type is not as engaging and useful as what we were thinking or trying to accomplish with all that typing, 3) They hear and use language, developing vocabulary, syntax complex sentence structure, and challenging concepts (to name a few). Take your child to work day is an idea, not a social or parenting requirement. …of course.
