I think it's a great opportunity for kids to see what you do all day. It shows them what work might be like when they are older and what responsibilities come with it. As long as it's not dangerous of course! Missing one day of school can be made up and the experience will last a life time!

Yup, they can be! I took my daughter to work with me on her 10th birthday. 18 days later somebody flew a plane into my office building and destroyed it.

I was thinking of my place of work years ago with machinery, theres no way children could have been around them.. and how can anyone do their jobs if they have to mind their kids..

If it was an organized event I would do it; there are a lot of neat things to see and do at my job. But others wise, no; I can't think of anything more boring than sitting there watching me audit.

Most of the kids brought to the offices I've worked in behaved well. Some got bored. But, boy oh boy, I remember when one foolish mother brought her ADHD boy for the day, and I literally watched him roll back and forth all over the floor, bored and restless. He was a funny and likable kid but very pesty, and this was one child that didn't belong there.
