The Global Day of Parents is observed on the 1st of June every year. The Day honors parents throughout the world. The day provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.
Nowadays due to busy schedules, children are not able to spend their time with their parents. So, Global Parents Day 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.
- Billy Graham: No parent is perfect; we all can look back and think of things we could’ve done to help our children be better prepared for adulthood. And sometimes it’s best to admit it to them and encourage them to learn from our mistakes.
- Mark Twain: Always obey your parents — when they are present.
- Captain Kangaroo, Bob Keeshan: No other person or outside force has a greater influence on a child than the parent.
- Adam Sandler: One thing I do know about being a parent, you understand why your father was in a bad mood a lot.
The United Nations adopted a resolution in the fall of 2012 to observe the Global Day of Parents. The first observance took place on June 1, 2013.
