TAKE YOUR KID TO WORK DAY: WHY ISN’T THIS STILL A POPULAR TRADITION

“They should see success early on.”


tag along

When I was a child there was a special occasion called,” Take your daughter to work day.” It was to promote women in the workforce. But also it was aimed at showing little girls what they could potentially be in life. Days like this were odd when the whole grade level or more would be all boys in class. Later on the day changed to take your kid to day. As of today, I don’t think the day is celebrated anymore. With all the political correctness who know the real reason. But on the other hand, should we reconsider taking the day back again.

they learn a lot

Children learn a lot at home, but what they learn from watching you work on a job is something different. Because they are not watching mom and dad be mom and dad. They are watching mom and dad not only be responsible, but told what to do. Which is an interesting dynamic when you have children and they live by your rules. So them watching you under the chain of command allows them to see how orders are doled out. It prepares them for the world they will enter once mom and dad are no longer in the picture. The introduction into life and how you must behave to survive in this world.

why it stopped

The answer to the header is that it never really stopped. It just has not been as popular as it was in the past. But I think we should start promoting the take the kid to your job. Because in a society where every kid gets a trophy, they should see that everyone don’t get a trophy. Your hardest sometimes is still not good enough. That realness is too much to ignore, and will make them tough enough to deal in life.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
