A day to honor and celebrate the importance of the family.
was created by KidsPeace®
, one of the largest organizations giving hope, help and healing to children, families and communities, and is an annual holiday held every year on a Sunday in March to recognize the importance of family. It's a time to remember heritage, interact and communicate, share values, and renew our commitment to nurture and grow strong families, because strong and supportive families give kids peace.
One of the common threads surrounding our nation's social ills is the lack of consistent and meaningful family interaction. Positive communications is the driving force that brings children and families together for National FamilyDay®
. There are plenty of ways to spend time with your family. Here are just a few:
• Take a walk
• Plan a family bike ride
• Visit a state park or a historical site
• Go bowling
• Read to your child
• Plan a family dinner, include extended family
Family is a child's most important source of support. "Family" has been defined by research as "anyone to whom you are emotionally attached."
