Saturday, April 5th is the 11th annual National Love Our Children Day. National Love Our Children Day is an initiative of Love Our Children USA, and is celebrated annually across the country on the first Saturday of every April to honor children, strengthen families and raise awareness for efforts to protect children.
National Love Our Children Day is like Mother's and Father's Day for children. This special day was created to acknowledge the value of children and to educate parents on the importance of giving them love, protection and respect, the three essential elements children need to become strong and successful adults. By promoting healthy and happy children and strengthening families through the support of our nation’s communities, we can keep kids safe and break the cycle of violence.
The 11th Annual National Love Our Children Day will be celebrated on Saturday, April 5, 2014.
Ross Ellis, Love Our Children USA’s founder and chief executive officer urges all parents, families and communities to take time to honor children on each year on the first Saturday of April! Ellis said “Whether you are a parent or not, children touch your heart in some way. We all have children in our lives, whether it's a son or daughter, relative, friend or neighbor's child. What greater purpose does a person have than to help protect respect, honor and celebrate a child? What is more powerful than the realization that a child needs my love?”
Love Our Children USA asks parents to spend the day with the children and teens in their life! Shower them with special attention. Take them to a movie, game, fair, circus, concert, shopping or out to lunch. Do something special together or buy them something they have been wanting for a long time — just because you love them!
Whatever you choose to do with your children on Love Our Children Day, make it a special day! Celebrate together! Children are our treasures!
