Yesterday was my daughter’s first day on the job. I can’t believe my baby is working!! In all honesty, I don’t know who was more nervous about it … I’m happy to report that we both survived.
My daughter went through the normal first-job-kind-of-feelings. Do you know the feelings I’m talking about? Fear, nerves, confusion, anxiety, doubt, and all that sort of stuff. She was even embarrassed because she had to keep asking for help! I did take the time to explain to her that these are all normal feelings but that before she knows it she’ll feel a lot more confident. She’ll be fine (I know) but I had to do my mom-job didn’t I?
Now it’s your turn. What was it like when your child first went to work? How did you feel? How did your child feel?
