According to the United Nations observances, June 1 is observed as the Global Day for Parents and emphasizes the critical role that parents play in nurturing and rearing their children. The United Nations established this day to recognize “the critical role of parents in the rearing of children, the Global Day of Parents recognizes that the family has the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children. For the full and harmonious development of their personality, children should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding.”
The Global Day of Parents was designated by the General Assembly in 2012, and gives and opportunity to us all to appreciate our parents and their “selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.”
We all know the important role our parents play in our lives, without them we would not only not exist, but also not grow up to be the individuals we are. From providing mental, emotional and financial stabilty, our parents strive and do their best to make sure that their kids do not lack anything in life, and this day allows us to appreciate the efforts.
