We LOVE the reasons behind this day! As a fair trade company started and run by two mother/daughter teams, Trades of Hope aligns itself with things that challenge stereotypes, fight social injustices and expand options for our future leaders.
Those voices are shaped by the world around them. If you have kids of your own or any youth in your life, you know how easily they “parrot” your actions. Modeling the behavior you want to see in your kids is the best way parents around the world can mold them into loving, caring adults.
We can shape our children in our lives to be caring, strong, compassionate, problem-solving leaders! We can teach them values that will enable them to handle adversity and overcome obstacles with grace. We can show them how to have empathy and compassion for others, especially those going through struggles.
The woman who started Bring Your Daughter to Work Day got the inspiration from observing her parents at work. Both of her parents pursued their respective careers with zeal. Her father was a well-known, high-level political leader and her mother was a painter and advocate for the arts. Through these young, impressionable eyes, she later found her own passion of advocating for women and girls.
Your child will make an impact in many lives. They've already started doing so. You have the power to shape that impact into a positive one.
When you become a Compassionate Entrepreneur and sign on a Spark, you have the unique opportunity to spend time with your child and any day you can "take your child to work!"
