I Love You Forever..
Parenting is one the hardest yet most rewarding jobs in the world. The only compensation that parents receive is the unconditional love of a child, and yet, that is the best feeling in the world. As we watch them grow from babies into adults, we watch their horizons grow and expand. Not all parents have biological children, and some have fur babies, but that does not make them any less of a parent. Foster parents and adoptive parents are just as important as biological parents. As we celebrate our parents, we acknowledge their support of education, uplift and support that they provide. Many communities around the country promote that celebration and continued model in the home.
Parent’s Day was set aside by President Bill Clinton in 1994. While we celebrate both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day already, Parent’s Day combines to celebrate the people who have made our lives special. The United States is not alone in recognizing the role of parents. Most countries around the globe all celebrate Parent’s Day with celebrations and drawing attention to the contributions into the lives of children. Korean children give carnations to their parents as a sign of their love.
Parents promote more than they know through their roles in the home. From them, children learn manners, how they fit into society, and culture. Everything that we do in our home affects children one way or another and we hope that we are giving them the support and advice they need to lead productive roles in society.
Here are some fun activities that families can do together:
- Family movie night
- Sporting events
- Cooking a meal together
- Visit a museum or zoo together
- Dance party in the living room
How do you celebrate your parents?
