Parents Day !

National Parents’ Day honors all parents on the fourth Sunday in July

In May we celebrated mothers, and in June we celebrated fathers.  It follows that in July we can bring all our parents together and show them some appreciation all at once.  Parents play a vital role in the lives of children.  From the day we are born, parents are our protectors, teachers, providers and role models.  As families, they are the core of our communities.  On National Parents’ Day, we honor all parents do every day to raise up their children in a world that is constantly changing and challenging.

               

HOW TO OBSERVE:
Spend some time with your parents or visit someone who was like a parent to you.  Post on social media using #NationalParentsDay and encourage others to join in.

HISTORY:

National Parents’ Day was established in 1994 when President Bill Clinton signed a Congressional Resolution into Law  (36 U.S.C. § 135) for: recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.”  The bill was introduced by Republican Senator Trent Lott. 

HAPPY PARENTS DAY TO ALL !
