The United Nations Global Day of Parents is today. The General Assembly made this designation in 2012 to provide an opportunity to support and appreciate all parents for their commitment to children.
Global Day of Parents recognizes that the family has the primary responsibility for nurturing and protecting children. In addition, it is an opportunity to educate the public on issues of concern as well as to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems.
