When Work is Child's Play

The morning show moment Moms are buzzing about.

Wish every day was "Bring Your Child to Work Day"? Check out this Today show clip, where you'll see one company that actually encourages their employees to bring their children to the office. Now, we're all for being around our kids as much as we can, but isn't it a bit distracting to have your 6-month-old sit on your lap while you're returning e-mails and fielding conference calls?


What's your take on this new trend? Is taking a baby to the office a good thing, or does it just lead to even more stress in the workplace?

I am a work-at-home-mom, and this is what my day looks like! I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but yes, it is stressful, distracting, etc. I know this wouldn’t work in every situation, but with the right job and the right corporate culture, this could be a HUGE plus for moms who are having trouble deciding between work and career.

Being Mom-Logic, I would imagine your office already looks like this, yes? Maybe you (Mom-Logic) could share how this is viewed by your own staff and management.

A formidable share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing just a little evaluation on this. And he actually bought me breakfast as a result of I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the deal with! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I really feel strongly about it and love studying more on this topic. If doable, as you develop into experience, would you thoughts updating your weblog with more details? It is highly helpful for me. Huge thumb up for this weblog put up!
