  • It was a 'Bring your child to work' day, and my son joined his dad and did a day's 'job' at IBM.

    Ben joined some children and visited a museum, library and also played some games.

    I'm sure they also saw some sheep and visited parks and the garden with a pond.

    They were entertained by some graduates.

    Ben came home with some souvenirs and a certificate to prove that he did some work.

    When you bring your child to work, hopefully your child will feel that you are the greatest human being on earth.

    Worrying about Ben's concept about 'work', I explained to him later that, in real life:

    1) You don't always get souvenirs or free stuff when you go to work as an adult.

    2) You don't always get recognised with a certificate either, definitely not on your first day of work.

    3) No one is paid to entertain you all day.

    4) No one is paid to make sure you are happy all day.
