The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 1st June as the first-ever Global Day of Parents in the year 2012 to honour all the parents around the world. It provides an opportunity to appreciate and encourage all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifices towards nurturing this relationship.
The major and basic purpose of Global Parents Day is to pay tribute to the parents for their priceless efforts for their children’s existence and survival and to accept the sacrifices and affections of parents towards children. Not only parents but grandparents and great-grandparents are also a part of the Global Parents Day. Thus, Global Day of Parents urges everyone to show gratitude and respect to the elderly.
‘Appreciate all parents throughout the world’ is the theme for Global Day of Parents, 2022.
In 2012, the U.N. General Assembly declared the first-ever Global Day of Parents. Since then, it has been held annually on June 1 to honour parental units around the world. Being a parent is one of the most universal experiences, but it’s definitely not a walk in the park. For one, it has its challenges long before kids are even born. With many complications resulting from pregnancy, just having a healthy parent is something to be grateful for. And while many of us didn’t appreciate being nagged to clean our rooms, someone had to help us fight off the dust bunny invasion.
