What Kids Really Think About Work

Filed under: Work Life

Have you ever wondered what your kids really think your job is like? Recently, we brought some of our children to the office to give them a sneak peak at what mommy and daddy are up to all day. Granted, it wasn't a totally run-of-the-mill day: AOL set up a game room and even had the "Naked Brothers Band" perform. But these kids still gave us some interesting insight into what they think about work.

Click on the gallery below to see what they said -- and then ask your kids what they think you do all day, and share with us in the comments.

What Kids Really Think About Work

    "I think work is more fun than school. I've told mom I would rather go to work a bunch of times, but then she says she'd rather go to school," 7-year-old Sadie says with a laugh. So what makes work so fun? "I had three donuts!" Getting to drink hot chocolate was a big hit with the kids, too. (Funny, when we are here those are the very things we are trying to avoid eating!)

    The kids were treated to a performance by the "Naked Brothers Band." When we asked 12-year-old Laura if she thought her dad's job was this fun everyday, she replied with an enthusiastic "Yes!"

    11-year-old Gretta was super excited to get an autograph from band members, but was a little more realistic about whether every day at the office was this fun. "Well...not exactly," she said.

    After hanging out in our game room a bunch of the boys here declared they would be video game reviewers when they grew up. It's real job...seriously.

    9-year-old Cameron shared that she wasn't too surprised today because her daddy tells her all about his job. Though she's not always thrilled with his hours. "He gets home really late sometimes," she said. But Cameron smiled ear to ear when she told us, "We talk a lot in the morning."

    10-year-old Brian came in with his mom. What did he was his biggest surprise of the day? "I thought her office would be bigger."
