What is the Global Day of Parents?
Since the 1980s, the importance of the family has increasingly come to the attention of the international community. The contribution of a family in terms of emotional, physical, and monetary support they provide to each other and help in growth cannot be undermined in and that is why The General Assembly adopted many resolutions and proclaimed the International Year of the Family and the International Day of Families.
Parents are pillars of a family and emphasizing on 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 and this chain helps in building a strong world. For the full and harmonious development of their personality, children need to grow up in a family environment and an atmosphere of happiness, love, and understanding.
In 2012, designated by the General Assembly, Global Day of Parents provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents around the world for their “selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.”
