Working Parents Day

Working Parents Day is a holiday dedicated to parents raising children and continuing to work. This approach is difficult, but allows you to provide your family with everything you need. It is celebrated annually on September 16th.


It is not known who proposed to celebrate Working Parents Day. However, this is a great way to support parents and say thank you to them. On average, both parents in 61% of families continue to work full-time while raising children.

Gender roles in the 17th and early 20th centuries were not clearly defined. This was especially true for immigrants from southern countries. Even with children, parents had to work in difficult conditions, as wages were low. Toward the second half of the 20th century, the situation changed dramatically. On TV programs and in films, the image of a typical family began to be often depicted. The father leaves for work in the morning, the wife accompanies him and stays at home with the children, coping with household chores. The image of a working husband and a housewife is so ingrained in society that inconsistency with it caused censure from others.

Today we are witnessing how society is moving away from stereotypes. Parents continue to work, providing for their family together. Many people are revising their work schedule so that they can be with the child more often and still have time for everything.

How to celebrate

  • Team up with co-workers at work and come up with holiday events for co-workers with kids to celebrate Working Parents Day.
  • On this day you can take a break from work and spend time with your children. Get ready for a walk, go to a water park, a circus, etc. Give your child care and attention.
  • Share information about this holiday in social networks. Most likely, many people have not heard of him.
