Parents Day is coming up. It’s always the fourth Sunday of July, and this year, that’s the 29th. Have you ever observed this unique holiday? There’s a chance you’ve never heard of it. While it was created in 1994 by President Clinton, it’s not as well-known as many other days of observance. It’s not even marked on a lot of calendars, so many people don’t know about it. It’s not just another day to give gifts to mom and dad. Instead, it’s a day to reaffirm your love for your family and for both parents and children to acknowledge their love and commitment to each other. It’s not always easy to be a parent or to take responsibility for raising a child, and those who do this day-in and day-out should be honored for it.
Parents’ Day was set aside to be that one day out of the year that all family members stopped and re-dedicated themselves to the family unit. This includes nontraditional parents, single parents, adoptive parents, and even those who aren’t strictly mom or dad, such as an aunt, uncle, grandparent, or family friend who has become like a second mom/dad. Everyone who has helped raise a child deserves to be honored and recognized on Parents’ Day.
What exactly do you do on Parents’ Day? Anything you like, really. You can have a family dinner at home or at a restaurant, go on a family outing, take a short weekend vacation, or just sit at home and talk about some of the great times you’ve had. Just be together and let the love you have for your family show.
