— Take your daughter to work. It started in 1993 as a movement to enable young girls to find out what the workplace is really like and to help build their self-esteem, but it has grown into a broader program for even more people. Now, mothers andfathers take daughtersandsons, and it's not just parents' jobs on display.

Thursday at Fort Bragg, children had the opportunity to learn about many different jobs at a special career fair just for kids.

Krystal Landers said she had fun both at the fair and at her mother's workplace.

Career mom Janice Hunter said her daughter got a valuable experience by spending time in Hunter's workplace.

The children at Fort Bragg got treated to lunch with their parents. Most of the children said they liked having boys and girls there. Parents say it gives all children a better sense of what options they will have in the future.
