National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is recognized on the fourth Thursday in April each year.  This annual event is an educational program in the United States and Canada where parents take their children to work with them for one day.  It is the successor to Take Our Daughters to Work Day which, in 2003, was expanded to include boys. Most companies allowed both girls and boys to participate since the beginning, renaming the day “Take Our Children to Work Day.”
