Importance of parenting

You have an important role as a parent!

The amazing role of parenting

You are doing the most important job there is. It’s rewarding, but sometimes it’s tough. This Children’s Day we encourage families everywhere to treasure their children.

When you’re a parent that might mean:

  • Making sure your kids have the things they need. Check out everyday families to see ten simple things kids need everyday.

  • Look after yourself so you can be there for them. It’s good to take time out to be you. There are some nice tips on Barnardos’ website.

  • Learn about positive discipline. This job never came with a manual and knowing some tricks of the trade can make life a whole lot easier.

  • Listen to what kids say on Facebook. They fill us with inspiration everyday.

Communities back Children’s Day

Organisations everywhere are showing their support by organising Children’s Day events for the children and families in their community.

  • There will be hundreds of events happening nationwide. See our list of events.

  • Help spread the message about ‘treasuring our children’, and share helpful information for parents on Children’s Day. Tell your friends and family about it and help spread this great day!
