MEDIA ALERT | NEW DAY PROCLAMATION | NATIONAL PARENTS DAY OFF – September 14
NATIONAL PARENTS DAY OFF
All parents deserve a day off. On September 14th, National Parents Day Off brings an opportunity for parents to recharge and get some much-deserved recognition.
Parents are the organizers, cheerleaders, teachers, and directors of the family. They wear many hats and rarely have a moment for themselves. Yet, they are dedicated to raising successful, well-adjusted children. Once school starts, parents have a window of time to take a breather. While we know carpools, after-school activities and school projects seem never-ending, taking time for yourself benefits you and the entire family.
National Parents Day Off focuses on recognizing every parent and rewarding them for their commitment to their children, no matter what stage of life they are in.
HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalParentsDayOff
Parenting can be challenging and messy; that’s why parents should get ready for an EPIC BREAK! Epic and a mystery friend are encouraging parents to get some “me time” to take a break and celebrate. How?
- On September 13, 2021, Epic will kick off the celebration by prompting “tell us you’re a parent without telling us you’re a parent” and asking parents to share on Instagram the funny, messy and real side of parenting with a video or image using #NationalParentsDayOff and tagging @epic4kids that shows you’re a parent without saying a word.
- On September 14 when they’re not posting their latest parenting moment, Epic wants all parents to take time for themselves, whether it be a few hours or 15 minutes to relax.
Join the campaign by sharing your parenting moments using #NationalParentsDayOff and tagging @epic4kids on social media.
