Today is Global Day of Parents and we mark the occasion by paying our respects to parents all around the world for their selfless commitment to children and share some fascinating podcasts for you to give a listen.

Global Day of Parents is observed on the 1st of June every year, which so happens to be today. The Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 2012 and honours parents throughout the world. It provides an opportunity for our team at Beam Health and everyone worldwide to appreciate parents for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship.

For the full and harmonious development of their personality, children should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding. That is where parents come in. The critical role of parents in the rearing of children cannot be understated, having the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children.

Parents of every race, religion, culture and nationality in all parts of the world are the primary caregivers and teachers of their children, preparing them for a happy, fulfilling and productive life. Parents are the anchors of the family and the foundation of our communities and societies.
