Need for ‘Take your kids to work day’

by Ashish Gupta, November 1, 2016

I recently came upon this news of Khanittha Phasaeng, Thailand’s winner of Miss Uncensored News Thailand 2015 coming back home immediately after the contest in her winning dress and tiara, to kneel and touch the feet of her mother who raised her by working as a garbage recycler.
Such a gratitude towards parents is rarely seen in today’s generation and it got me thinking why so?

Having sips of my afternoon cold coffee I started comparing this story to today’s kids and what separates them two is that:
Khanittha Phasaeng has for most of her life assisted her mother in collecting and recycling garbage and she claims she never felt ashamed: ‘What I have today is because of my mother. She and I make a living by doing honest work, so there is no reason why I should feel inferior.’
Even though after she gained spotlight she always knew where she came from and never forgot the struggle her mother endured to get her to the stage she was standing on.

Such gratitude is absent in many kids of today, so what is the best possible way to generate this sense of gratitude in kids I wondered, and after some internet surfing and few articles later I came to the conclusion that one of the best ways to accomplish this is to encourage ‘Take your kids to work day’.

I look back upon my childhood and remember I myself have had the pleasure of watching my dad at work and was completely fascinated by it. Even though his work was just repairing broken machines I always used to shout “Jaadu Jaadu” (magic) when he repaired a broken machine.
His hands at the end would be all dirty due to oiling and wiring, but I knew deep down even at that tender age that those dirty hands are the reason I have clean clothes to wear, healthy food to eat and a roof over my head.
I look back to those days and feel so proud of my father and surely the day I accomplish something great (A Nobel prize for blogging… HAHA), I will surely follow Khanittha Phasaeng’s footsteps and do the same.

‘Take your kids to work day’ even if done once a month has the power to leave an everlasting positive impact on your child regarding your importance and towards the work you do and also will develop a sense of gratitude toward the luxuries kids are provided.
Finally I hope that this blog encourages more parents to get kids involved in their work and make sure to go through these tips mentioned by IBtimes before you plan this amazing day for your kids.

    So true it is !! In the past children used to inherit the their ancestor's trades but now it all has gone, the skills practiced by the previous generation will just vanishes with them. We not only have to take our children to the workplace but also we should make them know what actually we are doing in the office.

    Wonderfully written.. I m sure our kids will see the hard work that goes into our day.. And inculcate some values from our values like importance of always saying the truth and how important time and words we speak is ones life.. I also somehow feel that the kids of today being used to take everything for granted will realize that the luxuries they enjoy back home is because of some hard work that is put in by parents!

    Amazing thought. Instead of just saying what efforts we put in making our kids' future better, wht not let them experience it. This way they'll appreciate the efforts all the way more.
