Bring your Family to Work

This is not by any means a daily activity and will get you fired from your job. But sometimes your work has a party and there is no harm in bringing a family companion like your child. Everything you take for granted—the pictures in the halls, the machines you use, your familiar coworkers—are seen anew through another person. It’s a novel experience that does wonders not only for your child but for your own neural networks as well.

The simple act of making introductions fosters the all-important social interactions that we know are crucial for a healthy brain. Introducing your child to your coworkers exercises your abilities with names far more effectively than sitting at your desk and trying to memorize them.
