Global Day of Parents
The Global Day of Parents, June 1, provides an opportunity to appreciate parents for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship. UPF supports the UN resolution noting that the family has the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children and that children, for the full and harmonious development of their personality, should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding.
Programs may include
- Readings of the UN's background statement on the Global Day of Parents
- Speeches or personal reflections about parenting
- Showing a short animated video clip about parental love
- Readings about parents from the world's religious traditions followed by a discussion
- Showing a movie about parent-child relationships
