UN Global Day of Parents 2013

UPF Chapters Observe the New UN Global Day of Parents

The Global Day of Parents is observed on June 1 every year. The Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/66/292 and honors parents throughout the world. This annual observance 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.

In its resolution, the General Assembly also noted 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.

The resolution recognizes the role of parents in the rearing of children and invites Member States to celebrate the Day in full partnership with civil society, particularly involving young people and children. [See translations of this announcement in Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, and Russian.]
