The purpose of Global Day of Parents is to recognise the vital role played by both mothers and fathers in caring for and teaching their children. Parenthood is a common possession and common value of all human beings, regardless of where they live or what ethnic group they come from. Global Day of Parents is a time to stress that fact and to promote principles of good parenting worldwide.

On and around 1 June, there will be special parenting and parent related events organised all over the world by community leaders, pro-family organisations, and governments. There will also be media campaigns promoting the importance of parents and of good parenting.
