Respect for Parent’s Day

“Parenting is a life time job and does not stop when a child grows up.” Jake Slope


Respect for Parent's Day was created because of the human desire to honor and appreciate the love of Parents. Respect for Parent's Day became official in the US in 1994, by President Clinton. It is also celebrated to appreciate parenting and recognize positive parental role models. This day also observes the special bond of love and care between parents and their children.

“Many organizations, local governments and other communities encourage Parents’ Day by organizing various activities and games.”


Ways to Celebrate Respect for Parent’s Day


  1. Help your parents around the house: mow the lawn, do the dishes, etc.

  2. Give them a small gift to show them how much they mean to you.

  3. Treat them to a dinner out.

  4. Take them to a movie.

  5. Call your Parents- ask how they are doing and if you can do anything for them.


Respect For Parent's Day recognizes not only the leadership roles that parents play in a child’s life but also in our communities. “Parents are entrusted with the first expression of love and sense of security that a child experiences. Parents are our first protectors and nurturers, and they set a foundation for leading and teaching us to grow up to be good human beings.”


This day also reminds us to respect our parents or anyone that plays a role as a parent figure in our lives: Aunts, Uncles, Godparents. It is also a day to reconnect with our parents and hopefully spend some quality time with them.
