Global Day of Parents 2022: There is no substitute for parents because they do almost all the things to light a way that leads a success. They also guide and support us to mark an achievement in society. Global Day of Parents is observed on 1st June. Let us have a look in detail at the history, objective, significance, etc. The day is observed on 1st June annually to honour parents and their commitments to children across the world. It is a United Nations (UN) observance day. The day provides us an opportunity to appreciate parents and parental figures for the important role that they play in the development of families.
The day pays respect and appreciates parents what they do for their children, their selfless commitment to children, and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship. Most countries have the tradition to respect parents who are going for ages. Parents are the best gift of God. Nobody in life can take the place of parents. They are true well-wishers.
The day also recognises that the family has the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children. It is necessary for the development of children that they grow up in a good family environment, in an atmosphere of happiness, love, and understanding. No doubt that family-oriented policies enable to achieve Sustainable Development goals related to doing away hunger and poverty, promote shared economic prosperity, social development, etc. Centre of social life is family only.
In this world, we can’t see God but we have parents. In India, they are referred to as God. Since ancient times we taught to respect parents and elders. Nowadays due to a busy schedule, children are not able to spend their time with their parents. So, Global Day of Parents is the day to celebrate with the whole family, spending time with our parents and near ones. Children give gifts and show their gratitude by staying the whole day with them.
Global Day of Parents was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 2012 with a resolution and honour parents throughout the world. It is celebrated in different countries on different dates. Like in the USA it is celebrated on July (4rth Sunday), South Korea (8 May), etc. The day also recognises the important role of responsible parenting in everyday life.
How is Global Day of Parents celebrated?
– Children spend quality time with their parents. They call and visit them.
– Greet your parents and tell them that they were right. When we were kids we don’t understand what our parents say but when we have our own kids then we come to know that our parents were right. Isn’t it!
– Plan a vacation for your parents wherever they want to visit.
In the whole world, Parents Day is celebrated but different countries celebrate it on different days. But the main aim behind the celebration is the same and that is to give appreciation, love, care, respect, etc. to the Parents. Think about those who have lost their parents or are parentless. This is the day to provide a gesture to your parents for the sacrifices, nurturing, care, emotional strength, etc. given by the parents to us.
