Parents' day is celebrated worldwide on the fourth sunday of July in honor of our parents. It is a holiday similar to a combination of fathers' day and mothers' day. A family begins with the union of a man and a woman and their becoming father and mother. The most powerful and lovely of all human bonds is parent-child relationship. Parents play the most important role in a proper mental and physical develpoment of a child. An individual comes to know about his/her customs,traditions and ethical values from their parents.
In 1994 President Bill clinton signed into law the resolution unanimously adopted by the Congress of the United States for establishing Parents' day as a holiday. Parents' day is celebrated for recognizing the role of parents in rearing their children.
The observation of parents' day gives people an opportunity to show respect and love to their parents and recognize what they have done which people often forget. Parents' day offers a fabulous oppurtunity for various organisations and communities to honor exemplary parents and to encourage families everywhere to invest in the most precious resource – children. Among the most popular of these activities has been the recognition of outstanding couples as parental role models who have been honored as "Parents of the Year" at the national, state, local and church level. Celebration of parents' day gives a chance to accredit and encourage parenting. It is a chance to create a positive tradition based on a core axiom – that the role of parents is crucial in the nurturing and development of children, and thus requires investment, focus, and commitment.
