Today is Parents’ Day! Every year on the fourth Sunday of July, communities across the country celebrate the value and importance of good parenting.
President Clinton established Parents’ Day in 1994. According to the Congressional resolution, this day was established for "recognizing, uplifting, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children."
The Parents' Day Council plays an important part in celebrating and promoting this holiday through a variety of activities and events each year. The Council honors "Parents of the Year" at local, state, and even national levels. If you know an outstanding parent, nominate him or her for Parent of the Year.
