Take Your Son or Daughter to Work Day is old hat. But some companies, for example, Google, LinkedIn, Logitech, DeutscheBank, and Northwestern Mutual, have recently instituted Take Your Parents to Work Day. For example, at Google's second annual, more than 2,000 parents showed up. (If you were a parent awesome enough to have spawned a Googler, wouldn't you come?)

And Parent Day makes a whole lot of sense both for employers and employees.
