Parents' Day in the United States
In the United States
, Parents' Day is held on the fourth Sunday of every July. This was established in 1994
when President Bill Clinton
signed a Congressional Resolution
into law for "recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children."
Parents Day, proclaimed by a joint Congressional Resolution, is an opportunity to uplift parenthood and to highlight the important roles parents have in helping their children grow up to be all that they can be. It's an opportunity for parents to re-examine their priorities, and re-dedicate their commitment to not let life's problems and concerns take precedence over our responsibilities as parents to help nurture our children. Parents' Day is a time for communities to celebrate our dedicated parents who strive to raise their children with unconditional love, often putting self-gratification aside to nurture their children in a loving environment.
