    You've never heard of take your kid to work day?

    Wow, I had several windows open, and when I read your post, it sounded like a comment on harry Reid and the Senate "Health Care" bill.

    This signifies little of course, but I thought it interesting.

    People do this all the time and nobody freaked out until now.

    I do not get the big deal. As others said it was take your kid to work day and you know the kiddo was right there with Daddy telling him what to say. Honestly how about giving thanks that a Dad gives a crap about his kid and took the child to work with him?

    Also there is another case too where someone did exact same thing. I do not understand the outrage over a parent doing something fun and showing his kiddo they MATTER and now this. Un frigging real

    Thank you!

    The suspension was warranted.

    Oh brother. There's a reason why some jobs don't have such a day.

    Oh, so if a child doesn't go to work with his parents his parents somehow don't care?
    Of if any parent brings their child with them to work then that means that the parent must care?

    Bringing your children to work does not mean you let your children do your job for you. Nor does it make you a better/worse or more caring/less caring parent.

    I'm imagining a world of anger from some ok-ers in this situation if we were discussing this coming from a fast-food drive-thru with a kid taking someone's order.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    0_0. If I had to chose based on this one fact alone. Does this parent love/enjoy their kid more than the other parent. Based only on if one parent ever took their kid to work and the other didn't. I would have to make a choice and say its more likely that the one who took the time to show their kid their life might love/enjoy their kid more.

    I work from home most of the time, so my kid is always at my work place. But that is not what the point is. Just because I can bring my kid to work, does not mean I'll let her grab my work files and work on them. That is my job. She can sit quietly at a table and draw while daddy works. That is how I remember bring your kid to school day. It doesn't mater how you see this, it sounds like a cute idea but in practice it just isn't something people should do.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
