RESPECT FOR PARENTS DAY

In an effort to “make our families become united and strong by recognizing the leadership roles parents have, and to reinstate the respect for parents that was evident in the past” RESPECT FOR PARENTS DAY was born.   These are the words of Marilyn Dalrymple from Lancaster CA as she created Respect For Parents Day which is celebrated annually on August 1st.

This day was created as a reminder that parents deserve and require respect and for all to consider the value that parents have in society.
