Global Day of Parents is celebrated on June 1 to highlight the importance of parents and their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship. The day is being celebrated after the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 proclaimed June 1 as Global parents day in order to honour parents across the world.
On this day, the United Nations has urged companies to introduce family-friendly workplace policies and practices especially now, when the world is going through such distressing times.
Taking to microblogging site Twitter, the UN wrote, “Monday is Global Day of Parents. As families bear the brunt of the #COVID19 pandemic, more family-friendly workplace practices & stronger childcare policies are needed more than ever (sic)."
