Take Your Child To Work Day 2012: What Do Kids Think Their Parents Do At Work?

04/26/2012 12:39 pm ET

If you work in an office, chances are your kids have some idea of what you do all day. But is it the right idea?

Today is Take Your Child To Work Day, and while the idea of the holiday might be to give children a sense of their parents' actual responsibilities, chances are that kids visiting their parents' workplaces will experience specially planned, kid-friendly activities rather than the normal daily grind.

This time last year, Parentdish asked the sons and daughters of AOL employees to say what they thought their parents did at work. Answers ranged from the straightforward ("Type[s] on the computer" and "Works on the Internet") to the hilariously general ("[My dad] does counting").

Take a minute to ask your child what he or she really thinks you do at work -- and let us know the answer by tweeting at @HuffPostParents with the hashtag #kidsatwork. We'll be collecting our favorite entries throughout the day in the slideshow below.
