Parents’ Day Celebration 2022

“We never know the love of a parent until we become parents ourselves.”
Henry Ward Beecher

The Global Day of Parents is observed on June 1st of every year.

As part of resolution A/RES/66/292, the UN General Assembly proclaimed this day in 2012 to honour parents all over the world.

On this day, we can recognize and appreciate all parents around the world for their selfless dedication to children and their lifelong sacrifices in nurturing this relationship.

The General Assembly noted in its resolution that children should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love, and understanding so that they can develop their full and harmonious personalities.

Every year on Global Parents Day, children show their appreciation for all that their parents have done for them.

Our relationship with our parents is the most valuable and true bond that most of us will ever possess and our parents' dedication to us is respected and cherished to this day.

Families with healthy relationships, one that is based on trust and respect rather than authority or strict guardianship, are a true blessing.

Both parents and children can benefit from an understanding that parents have a primary responsibility toward their children, as well as recognizing the importance of their roles in their development.

A healthy environment with clear boundaries is essential for a child's development and parents are the most effective teachers.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals cannot be achieved if children consistently experience trauma and emotional wounds.

Since the 1980s, the United Nations has focused on family issues and how the emotional and mental health of a child affects others spheres of development.

During its December 9, 1989 session, the General Assembly approved a resolution proclaiming 1994 as the International Year of the Family. In another resolution in 1993, it was proposed that the International Day of the Family be observed on May 15.

According to the United Nations, June 1, 2012, was declared the Global Day of Parents.

The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of the importance of the parental role in providing children with the protection and the tools they need to excel in school.

A child's parents are the first teachers and human interactions he or she has. Community leaders, parents, teachers, and family organizations come together to promote effective parenting.
