Proof You Shouldn't Bring Your Preschooler to Work

Today is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, when moms and dads get to show their kids how they put food on the table. The whole concept is an enriching idea ... for older kids.

I recently had to bring my just-turned-4-year-old to work with me, because her preschool was closed for the day. Within one hour, she'd trashed the place, had a pee accident and was running around my office naked (I'd failed to pack extra clothes). This was one of the worst days I've EVER had a work.

Think I got anything done that day? Check out the video:

People, be careful who you judge lest ye be the next one judged. The mom who shot this video obviously celebrates her child’s child-like ways. Don’t shame the child quite yet. Let her be.

Do you really think a three year-old can sit patiently in an office and fill our P.O.s and answer emails? That little girl is behaving appropriately.

More power to open-minded moms and dads. This world is a cold enough place with all the shame out there.
