Distract Your Kid At Work With These Take Your Child To Work Day Memes


It’s that time of year again. Every fourth Thursday in April marks Take Your Child to Work Day. According to Forbes, “more than 37 million Americans at over 3.5 million workplaces participate.” That’s a lot of kids and work is hard enough without having to worry about Timmy getting lost in the office. Don’t worry if you’re dreading the day. I’m sure your boss is having a field day trying to childproof all the corners to prevent a legal lawsuit from stressed parents.¬†Don’t get me started on how many times I’ve seen my coworkers’ kids wander around the bar I work at. They keep stealing my peaches…

Take Your Child to Work Day was originally meant to serve as a non-profit educational program. Parents were urged to bring their children to work for one day to educate children about various careers available to them as they grew up. In later years, the program encouraged employees to invite young relatives in addition to their children in order to expose them to more skilled professions.

Sure, maybe our kids will add some extra headaches at work, but it’s all for a good cause in the end. Here are a couple jokes and memes to help unwind and get a laugh out of National Take Your Child to Work Day!
