- Parents Day History
‘Parents Day’ was officially established by former US president, Bill Clinton, in 1994. During his presidential term in the White House, Clinton felt that although fathers’ day and mothers’ day were in existence, he strongly felt the urge of having a specific day to commemorate the effort of both the parents together in raising a child. He signed a law that was unanimously agreed upon by the congress. The fourth Sunday of July was declared as ‘National Parents Day‘.
