With online education, parents can deliver the lessons of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day everyday.
Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) April 24, 2008
Today is National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work® Day, an opportunity for parents to show their children the significance of a good work ethic and the importance of education in getting a career they enjoy. This is the program's sixteenth year, which was designed to help parents juggling career and family spend an entire workday with their children. The enriching experience is educational for both parents and children as it serves as an opportunity to discuss school, work and family time.
Many parents take this opportunity to contemplate their own career choices and reevaluate the importance of time with their children. For parents interested in furthering or changing their own career without leaving the home, an online education is a great way to continue to lead by example and stay close to the family. Thanks to online courses through web sites such as eLearners.com, a web resource of EducationDynamics, millions of parents are able to get a college degree without leaving their kids at night. Parents teach their children a priceless lesson in determination and goal-setting by advancing their career through online courses. These lessons are learned whether the parent is going to school for the first time, to complete an abandoned degree or to advance to a graduate degree program.
"Parents are a powerful example for kids to follow, not only in how they interact with their co-workers and the pride they take in their job, but also in the pursuit of knowledge and education," said Terrence Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer for eLearners.com. "Millions of parents choose online degree programs for a variety of reasons, and by doing so, parents can study right along with their children in the evenings demonstrating the importance of education and career."
eLearners.com, which connects prospective students with online learning providers, offers more than 6,000 online courses and more than 2,000 online degrees and certificates. An online education is the ideal alternative for parents seeking higher education because they can spend more time with their family by studying at home. By taking online undergraduate and online graduate programs, parents can further their education and career options without sacrificing their family life.
"Setting an example and spending time with one's children doesn't have to be a one day event," continued Thomas. "With online education, parents can deliver the lessons of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day everyday."
