5) It creates perspective.
Kids may have dreams of becoming doctors or news anchors, but they don’t always realize what it takes to get there. This special day gives them the priceless opportunity to experience their dream jobs and the chance to recognize the difference between a real workplace and the workplaces they’ve seen on TV. It allows them to see firsthand the role they will serve in society as adults.
4) It fosters respect and trust.
Seeing that you have responsibilities outside the home can be an eye-opening realization for your child. It can create a tighter bond between you and help him or her understand the daily challenges of creating a healthy work-life balance. It also sets up an inspiring role model scenario for the value of hard work.
