UNICEF ParentingJune 6, 2019
This past Saturday was the Global Day of Parents! Observed on the 1st of June each year, the Global Day provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship. The basis for this year’s message: “It’s about time”, underscores that parents need time to provide the “eat, play, love” children require to start their lives. For this week’s tip, we are sharing some of UNICEF’s great resources for parents and caregivers.
