Celebrate Parents’ Day This Sunday

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Family in a hot air balloonDid you know the fourth Sunday of July was dedicated as Parents’ Day back in 1994? (Former President Bill Clinton signed a resolution with approval from Congress.)  If you didn’t, take time to celebrate yourself and your spouse/partner as a parent this weekend.  Similar to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, Parents’ Day aims to “recognize, uplift, and support the role of parents in the rearing of children.”

The National Parents’ Day Coalition also encourages candidate nominations for the annual “Parents of the Year” award.  You can fill out an online nomination form here.

Here at Parents magazine, our mission is to foster “healthy kids, happy families,” and we hope you will take time every day to spotlight the fantastic parental figures that you know (go ahead and include yourselves as well!).

To inspire you, here are some fun family activities for unforgettable celebrations!
