National Working Parents Day is a day to celebrate those amazing parents who work hard all year to provide for their families.
Being a parent is tough and often involves balancing a full-time job, child care and a marriage or relationship. Many parents work incredibly hard in order to ensure their kids have food, clothing, shelter and a whole host of luxury items in order to make their childhood great.
Although the origins of National Working Parents Day are unknown, it seems logical to suggest it was created by an overworked, under-appreciated mother or father, seeking some basic recognition for their efforts.
Regardless of who created it and why, this is a day for parents to put their feet up, relax and take a much-needed break from all the hard graft. It is also a day for children to show their appreciation and potentially take on some of the day-to-day household chores.
