History of Global Parent’s Day
Parent’s day is celebrated in different countries on different dates.

This day recognises the important role of responsible parenting in everyday life. By 1994, the society had become completely self-centred.
In view of the situation, President Bill Clinton of the UN signed a congressional resolution to commemorate Parent’s Day with an effort to promote family commitment and parental responsibilities. This idea was supported by the Unification Church, and later Senator Trent Lott and introduced a bill into the senate. Further, the National Parent’s Day Coalition was developed to support this day annually as Parent’s of the Year at local, national and state levels.
In the whole world, the Global Day of Parents is celebrated on the same day. The main aim of the celebration is the same and that is to give appreciation, love, care, and respect their parents. This is the day to provide gestures to your parents for the sacrifices, nurturing, care, and emotional strength provided by them.
