The fourth Sunday of July is celebrated as National Parents Day every year. The objective of this day is to acknowledge and honor the role of parents in our lives. Parents are support systems and shade for every individual. Parents play a critical role in shaping an individual’s life. They induct us to the smallest unit of human community — the family!
Raising an individual is an act of responsibility. Parenting is not an easy task. From dedication and determination to compromises and sacrifices, parents are subjected to a plethora of such feelings.
From the cradle to the grave, learning and behavioral imprints from our parents remain with us throughout. This day acknowledges all those explicit and implicit contributions of parents in our lives.
