NATIONAL WORKING PARENTS DAY – September 16

NATIONAL WORKING PARENTS DAY

On September 16th, National Working Parents Day honors the working parent. The day pays tribute to those parents who work to provide for their family.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, around 61 percent of families with children have both parents working outside the home. That number increases to nearly 65 percent for families when the youngest child is at least six years old. However, if the youngest child is under six years old, that number drops to approximately 56 percent.

Working parents face a range of challenges. While juggling daycare and schedules top the list, they also struggle to find time with each other and their children. It’s often a balancing act that requires excellent communication skills, patience, and lots of love.

Often, working parents feel divided between home and work. Many times, parents work opposite schedules, so there’s always a parent home with kids. As a result, the adults rarely spend any time alone. Like many other working parents, they’re always on the go. Everyone has their responsibilities. Each takes turns staying home if one of the children becomes sick. School activities and other events are carefully orchestrated.

Precious family meals, bedtime stories, family movie nights, and vacations become highlights. These are the moments where working parents receive their rewards.

HOW TO OBSERVE #WorkingParentsDay

A parent’s work is never done.  Working parents, pat yourself on the back. Spend some time with your children. Before long, they’ll be grown. Your hard work will be done. For now, celebrate your tenacity and perseverance. Be sure to remember all the work parents do and use #WorkingParentsDay to share on social media.

National Lazy Mom's Day - First Friday in September

NATIONAL LAZY MOM’S DAY

During the first Friday in September, National Lazy Mom’s Day delegates everyday mom jobs to someone else.

Busy moms know that the work of being a parent is never done. However, occasionally parents need to recharge. The laundry and the dishes will be there later. When possible, finding someone to watch the children for a few hours is worth it. Sometimes all a mom needs is a nap. Other times, mothers (and fathers too) seek adult conversation.

Even though moms around the country view this day in different ways, the majority see it as a day for moms to take a break. While the occasion holds no shine to Mother’s Day, may we suggest some cooperation with Mom? Allow her to take a break. Divide the chores. Place a moratorium on family feuds. That’s how most celebrate this National Day.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalLazyMomsDay

You don’t have to celebrate like most moms do, however. Maybe it is a hammock and book kind of day for your lazy afternoon. Help mom celebrate this holiday by cleaning up after yourself. Rub her feet. Walk the dog. Mow the lawn. Put the dishes away. Pick up your dirty clothes. The list goes on.

Use #NationalLazyMomsDay to post on social media.

NATIONAL SINGLE PARENT DAY – March21st #motownmoxiemom #detroit #mommyblogger

We all have our struggles but  I really believe the truly blessed are those hard working single parents doing the job of two when it really takes the job of twenty to raise one child.

Here’s my story about my struggle with my son and then more about this special day. If you love this video and love this post, please like and share this post.

NATIONAL SINGLE PARENT DAY

March 21st is the day set aside to observe National Single Parent Day.  This day was created to honor and recognize the hard work, devotion, and sacrifices of single parenting.   Raising children can be challenging.

HOW TO OBSERVE

We all know of a family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker or someone who is a single parent. Support and appreciate them. Make this day a special one for the single parents that you know. Use #NationalSingleParentDay to post on social media.

HISTORY

An article was written by Janice Moglen in 1984,  with the hope that Single Parent Day may one day gain the recognition many associated with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  She collaborated with the organization, Parents Without Partners, and began to petition to have states declare recognition of Single Parent Day.  It is the belief that the day, March 21, was chosen to coincide with the inception of Parents Without Partners, which began on March 21, 1957.   Proclamation 5166 was presented to, and signed, by President Ronald Reagan declaring March 21st, 1984 as National Single Parent Day.

Proclamation 5166 — National Single Parent Day, 1984

March 21, 1984

By the President of the United States of America

A Proclamation

Before they are eighteen, about half of our Nation’s children will have lived part of their lives with a single parent who strives to fill the role of both mother and father.

Many single parents in America are making valiant efforts on behalf of their children under trying circumstances. Whether it is a deserted spouse forced to work and care for children simultaneously, or a spouse who is not receiving child support that has been awarded by a court, or an unwed mother who has bravely foregone the all-too-available option of abortion, or a widow or widower, single parents deserve our recognition and appreciation for their demonstrated dedication to their young.

At the same time, we should also recognize the vital and ongoing role a large percentage of non-custodial parents play in the nurturing process of their offspring. Their sacrifices, devotion and concern reflect the bonds of caring for those they have brought into this world.

Single parents can and do provide children with the financial, physical, emotional and social support they need to take their places as productive and mature citizens. With the active interest and support of friends, relatives and local communities, they can do even more to raise their children in the best possible environment.

The Congress, by H.J. Res. 200, has designated March 21, 1984, as “National Single Parent Day” and has requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of that day.

Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 21, 1984, as National Single Parent Day. I call on the people of the United States to recognize the contributions single parents are making, sometimes under great hardships, to the lives of their children, and I ask that they volunteer their help, privately or through community organizations, to single parents who seek it to meet their aspirations for their children.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-first day of March, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and eighth.

The Beauty Box you can afford. $5 /4 times a year | Of Course from @Walmart ‏#motownmom

 

Yes, I was skeptical when I saw this, but I was like hey, I’ll take one for the team and see what this is all about. I actually am impressed with just five dollars and the pretty bag.

Not as decorative as Ipsy and it has the Walmart decor on the other side, but really pretty to use as junk pocket for a purse.

Beauty Box Shipping

Winter starting January Summer starting June
Spring starting March Fall starting September

It’s really how it says. Five dollars for four boxes and you get asked about ten questions about your beauty style prior to paying for anything. That was cool and they sent me what suits me, although my daughter stole my unicorn glow mask. She loved it.

I think you will too.
