"Stuff comes and goes, but meaningful time together is forever. I encourage parents, adults and children to use National KidsDay as an opportunity to mark the importance of time well spent together."

"National KidsDay is an enlightened idea that promises to benefit
children today, as well as for years to come. This special day reminds
us of the high esteem in which we hold our children. By dedicating a
special day for children, National KidsDay promotes ever-increasing
attachments between parents and kids”
U.S. Conference of Mayors
The United States Conference of Mayors endorses and supports National KidsDay and encourages all Americans to participate in National KidsDay celebrations.
Whereas there is an epidemic of children in crisis in the United States caused by the increased stresses on children from contemporary society, which can even include instances of child abuse and neglect; Whereas KidsPeace is the oldest, most successful, and most comprehensive not-for-profit organization dedicated solely to helping children attain the confidence and develop the courage necessary to confront and overcome crisis; Whereas these celebrations can provide opportunities for parents, grandparents and caregivers to recognize the importance of being involved in the physical and emotional lives of their children: Now, therefore be it resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Congress:
1. Recognizes the importance of children and families to the future of the United States;
2. Expresses support for the goals of National KidsDay and National Family Month, as established by KidsPeace; and
3. Encourages the people of the United States to participate in local and national activities and celebrations recognizing National KidsDay and National Family Month. - The U.S. House of Representatives October 8, 1998 (excerpt)
