Etiquette Tips: Getting Children Ready for “Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day”
Social Emotional Learning | Character Education | Life Skills
The “Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day” program is a national organization that partners with companies to host our children in the workplace. The program offers children the chance to see what happens in an office environment. Many observe their parents at work.
This year the event is Thursday, April 25, 2019.
Are your students taking the day off to be with their parents? If you are a parent, are your children heading to work with you on Thursday?
Etiquette Tips on How to Guide Students to a Successful and Fun Day at the Office
Practice eye contact, a good handshake, and standing up for introductions. Explain to your students about the importance of getting along with others.
Conversation starters: They will be meeting new children and co-workers. To include others and be included is very important. Popular questions: Where do you go to school? Do you play sports? How many pets do you have? What is your favorite movie?
Keep in mind the office dress code. Remember first impressions are very important. A conservative outfit is the best choice in this situation.
Table manners: Chew with your mouth closed. The napkin belongs in the lap and elbows off the table.
Have your students/child write thank you notes: to the personnel that were involved in making it a special day.
