If your son or daughter is with you today as part of Take Your Child to Work Day, here's a handy checklist to help ensure your child benefits from the experience.

This checklist was developed primarily from the "Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Foundation," which offers a program that workplaces, and parents, can draw upon to make the day a more powerful experience. The foundation has activities for elementary, middle school and high school students, and guidelines for educators, parents and mentors. Among the foundation's objectives is to remove gender bias on the job by exploring the topic with children through the lens of taking a child to work.

"The most successful days are creative and productive," the foundation tells us. "Think about what makes your company unique, and most importantly, use your resources!"
