Bringing your child on a work trip

Take your child along on a work trip and create some special memories for you both.

  • Workmates rarely complain if you bring your children along.
  • During your work trip, do some non-work things together.
  • Take your child to the conference.
  • Don’t worry about taking them out of school; these trips are useful educationally.
  • The trip will have a positive impact on their learning overall.

Tips:

Call your child’s teacher or sports coach

Even when you are away from home, call your child’s teacher or sports coach to discuss any concerns you may have, or simply to say ‘thanks’.

Tips:

Avoid the good cop, bad cop trap

If you are separated from your partner, disciplining your children can become more difficult.
