Sunday is Parents’ Day!

Sunday is Parents' Day!

Mother’s and Father’s Day may be over, but there’s still Parents’ Day!

Most of our parents have given us a great deal of themselves, their time, their resources, and hopefully, their unconditional love.  Whether that meant putting in hours at the office, giving up free time to shuttle us to school, or helping us learn how to be healthy and strong, they invested a lot in getting us where we are today. Now it’s our opportunity to reciprocate and to invest in them; Sunday is Parents’ Day.

The U.S. recognizes Parents’ Day on the fourth Sunday in July. The goal is to give our parents the kudos they deserve for raising us. That means that if we dropped the ball on Mother’s or Father’s Day, we’ve still got another chance to show our parents how much they mean to us.

Some suggestions include sending a thoughtful note, plan a fun meal, give a meaningful gift, or just pick up the phone. However we choose to celebrate, it’s an opportunity to shower mom and dad with love this Parents’ Day.

As background, in 1994 President Bill Clinton signed into law the resolution unanimously adopted by the U. S. Congress, a perennial day of commemoration similar to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. According to the Congressional Resolution, Parents’ Day is established for “recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children.” The establishment of Parents’ Day was the result of a bipartisan, multiracial, and interfaith coalition of religious, civic, and elected leaders who recognized the need to promote responsible parenting in our society and to uplift ideal parental role models, especially for our nation’s children.

Since the creation of this annual day of commemoration, local faith communities, elected officials, and activists throughout the nation have creatively launched many activities around the theme of Parents’ Day designed to celebrate and strengthen the traditional, two-parent family. The National Parents’ Day Council does not envision Parents’ Day to be yet “another” day to honor parents, but rather a day when parents honor their children and the God-centered family ideal by rededicating themselves to manifest the highest standard of unconditional true love.
