In 2012, the United Nations launched World Parents’ Day on June 1st every year to strengthen parents in the upbringing, education and support of their children and to appreciate them for their tireless work.
World Parents Day History
On October 15, 2012, World Parents Day was proclaimed by the United Nations with the aim of showing respect to parents around the world and recognizing the responsibility they bear. World Parents’ Day was brought into being by UN General Assembly resolution A / RES / 66/292 and celebrated for the first time in 2013.
Children need their parents. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Due to the multiple burdens with job and child that families are exposed to, there is always overload and perplexity. World Parents’ Day is intended to create awareness that parents are supported and relieved in difficult situations.
“Every day, parents do great things in terms of care, upbringing, care, education and care. In doing so, they often put their own needs aside. They deserve our appreciation and our thanks for the diverse services that they provide free of charge every day and thus strengthen the fundamental cohesion of our society.
Today, and perhaps more than ever, parents are faced with a multitude of demanding upbringing and educational requirements. At the same time, the conditions have not yet improved sufficiently to be able to shape family life individually and reconcile it with working life. Families deserve the best possible support through a family-strengthening policy with supportive infrastructure, time and money. And they need educational, information and advisory services that they can take advantage of if they have any questions or are uncertain without major hurdles or long journeys.
Children are the future of society and parents empower and protect their children in the present. Parents want the best for their children. Parents play a key role in the life and development of their children from the earliest infancy to the threshold of education and professional life and into adulthood. We would like to thank them for that.”
