Parent’s Day is celebrated on the 24th of July every year to highlight the prior importance they play in the life of their children. This day is all about celebrating the tireless sacrifice that they have been making all their life for their children meanwhile making sure that their children lack nothing. Furthermore, on this auspicious day, every parent’s parenting is encouraged meanwhile highlighting the affection that both the parents and children share.
It is firmly believed by the United Nations that the family and their behavior play a vital in carving the overall personality of a child. This is the very reason why on a global scale, on the 17th of September, 2012, the UN General Assembly made a resolution 66/292 to pass where it was decided that the Global Parents Day will be celebrated on the 1st of June.
In the year 1994, then-President Bill Clinton of the United States signed a law where a resolution was adopted where it was established by the US Congress that the fourth Sunday of the July month will be celebrated as the Parent’s Day.
This day holds the same importance as Father’s Day and Mother’s Day. In the resolution of the Congressional, it has been well established that the whole motive of finalizing a date for Parents Day is to ‘recognize, uplift and support the role of parents in the rearing of children.
In other countries such as South Korea, Parents Day is celebrated on the 8th of May of every year.
On this day every year, the nations identify all of the parents and follow up by celebrating their teamwork in the process of the upbringing of the children. In the meantime, the nation also ensures that the roles of parents are well supported by the nation so that a strong, stable, and rigid society is built. Several community leaders across the nation ensure organizing events on the Parent’s Day.
To honor all the parents of the nation, the Committee of local Parents’ Day comprises teachers, ministers, students, and volunteers who collectively organize events. Ever since 1994, these local communities have made sure that they host the annual Parent’s Day programs and collect nominations and acknowledge the incredible parents by offering them awards for their outstanding parenting skills. Another way where you as an individual can celebrate this day is by visiting your parents if you live far from them or by visiting someone who was just like a parent to you. Thus these are some of the manners where you can celebrate your parents and show how grateful you are to them.
It is very necessary for every parent that their child should be raised harmoniously in an affirmative environment so that they can have a product development. These are the key considerations as to why the UN passed a resolution so that a day can be finalized to dedicate it entirely to all the parents out there. Thus, on the next Parents Day, try bringing a smile to your parent’s faces and you can do so by radiating all the nurture, respect, and love that you have received from them over all these years.
