“Bring Your Child to Work Day” was a big hit on both sides of the aisle of the Ohio Senate.

We hosted 35 children ranging in ages from 10 months to 18 years, brought to the Statehouse by both Republican and Democrat parents.

Typically held in April, the Ohio Senate hosted this educational event a little later in the calendar year due to the volume of legislation.

Developed by the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation, a non-profit educational organization, the day is intended to allow parents to show their children some future job possibilities. 

And, perhaps, to take some of the mystery out of what Mom or Dad do all day.

This year's theme was "Inspire 2 Aspire," which aimed to show children they can choose their own future, and that their potential is unlimited if they embrace a positive spirit and great work ethic.
