The family is the fundamental unit of society. That is why family is so important for the advancement of society. That’s why today we celebrate International Day of Families.
In the family, especially in the parents, we find our first teachers, that is why it is said that the first school is the home.
Hence the importance of healthy coexistence and putting values into practice. It is in the family space where an integral human being is formed, with values, who integrates easily into the dynamics of today’s society.
The support of families is something sublime for human beings. Unfortunately, there are millions of people who have no family and face a very difficult situation.
But what is family? A definition of “family” is:
“The family is a group of people who are united by blood and emotional ties and who generally live together”
Today this concept has been transformed. therefore the concept is also conditioned according to the individual characteristics of each family group.
The role of parents in the family – International Day of Families
Parents are not only obligated to provide financial support for the home. In addition, parents should set an example and show appropriate behaviors in front of their children.
Undoubtedly the example that children receive at home is projected at school. If the family is violent this will be what the child will show, if the family is respectful, in this way the child will behave.
It is of utmost importance that parents maintain spaces to dialogue with their children. The recreation space strengthens the bonds of father and children.
In addition, teaching your children to respect other people and animals is vital. In this way they respect the opinions and conditions of people.
Origin of the International Day of Families
This date is timely to reinforce the importance of families. Already in the 80s, International Day of Families was celebrated. But it is in the year 94 when it was made official by the General Assembly of the United Nations.
Without a doubt this is a wise decision, since the family is the central nucleus of any society.
This is how international Family Day is celebrated since 1994. It’s twenty-six years of this beautiful celebration.
May 15 of each year is a representative date to highlight the value of family throughout the planet.
The family is the basis for human beings to integrate more easily into their environment. Indeed, a human being will or will not form in his family the ability to achieve the levels of coexistence where the rules and norms established in his society are respected. It all depends on your family’s behavior about it.
The international day of families is a day to reflect and to thank God for the beautiful family we have.
Role of the family in today’s society
Today, International Family Day, is an auspicious day to address the importance of this in society.
The family plays a fundamental role in society, this is the way in which human beings have reproduced. Marriage is the first step to it, even if it is no longer considered so important today.
It is in the family that these new men and women form their personality, their values and their style of coexistence. It is therefore important for parents to set a good example and teach their children based on values.
The importance of the figure of father and mother is the same for both, since they not only share expenses, but emotional support in difficult times.
In addition, emotional ties are established between the different members that comprise it. (Father, mother, children, grandparents).
Everything is changing, that is why there are currently other family models. This has been generated thanks to social and economic changes.
Today, society has had to adapt to the new roles that both women and men have played. For this reason, unconventional family structures have been created.
