April brings the annual Take Our Daughters To Work Day, an event spearheaded by the Ms. Foundation to give girls a first-hand look at the world of work. This year, the event has been recast as Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Have you ever taken your kids to work with you in the past? Tell us your favorite memory, what your kids thought of the experience and if you’d do it again. Deadline: March 10.
In honor of Mother’s Day in May, we’d like to hear about the best bit of parenting advice you got from your mom. What did she say and when did she say it? How did her advice help you be a better mom? Deadline: April 7. If we run your response, we’ll send you a $10 Blockbuster gift certificate. We’ll print your first name, your town and the names and ages of your kids; please provide us with your full address and phone number for verification purposes only. Send all submissions to: Sandi Pedersen, Chicago Parent, 141 S. Oak Park Ave., Oak Park, IL 60302. [E-mail: [email protected][email protected]
