Global Day of Parents 2023 is being observed across the globe today (Thursday, June 1).
According to the media reports, the theme for the Global Day of Parents 2023 is Building Stronger Families for a Better Future.
According to ‘There is a day for that’, the Day is observed on the 1st of June every year. It was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 2012 with resolution A/RES/66/292 and honors parents throughout the world. This Day provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.
The important role of the family has increasingly come to the attention of the international community since the 1980s. The United Nations General Assembly adopted a number of resolutions and proclaimed the International Year of the Family and the International Day of Families.
The Parents Day emphasized the critical role of parents in the rearing of children and recognizes also that the family has the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children. For the full and harmonious development of their personality, children should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love, and understanding.
