On Thursday, 01 June 2023, Global Day of Parents is celebrated to recognize the critical role of parents in the lives of their children.
It also helps in the well-being of society on a wider note.
The world began celebrating the day after the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed June 1 as the Global Day of Parents in 2012.
On this day, people can spend time with their parents, give them gifts or plan to watch movies together. The UN emphasises on making the family bond stronger by spending time with your parents.
Though the UN formally recognized June 1 as the Global Day of Parents, its origins can be traced back to the 80s.
According to the UN website, the international community began realizing the important role a family plays in the lives of individuals.
To emphasize this, the UNGA adopted a number of resolutions and proclaimed the International Year of the Family and the International Day of Families.
The UN said that the presence of parents is very important for the full and harmonious development of a child's personality.
It added that children should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere that is surrounded by happiness, love, and understanding.
