The United Nations stress that as the anchors of the family and the foundation of our communities and societies, parents have the responsibility of sheltering their families from harm, caring for out-of-school children and at the same time, continuing their work responsibilities. Without support from parents, children’s health, education and emotional well-being is at risk.

From providing mental, emotional and financial stabilty, our parents strive and do their best to make sure that their kids do not lack anything in life and so, Global Day of Parents is marked to appreciate their efforts. It provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents for their "selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship."


Designated by the General Assembly in 2012, it was proclaimed that June 1 will be observed annually as the Global Day of Parents in honour of parents throughout the world.

History and significance

The important role of the family has increasingly come to the attention of the international community ever since 1980s. The United Nations established this day to recognize “the critical role of parents in the rearing of children, the Global Day of Parents recognizes that the family has the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children. For the full and harmonious development of their personality, children should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding.”


Urging us to acknowledge parents’ worth and affection and to value the sacrifices they make for their children, the theme for Parents Day 2021 is ‘Appreciate All Parents Throughout The World’ in endorsement of their struggles and sacrifices towards their children especially during the Covid-19 pandemic which hugely raised their responsibilities. Dedicated to all parents throughout the world who work, suffer and sacrifice for the comfort of their families, Parents Day 2021’s theme also pushes us to remember the lost-ones from our parents and pays tribute to them for their valuable efforts for our existence and survival.
